You are in for a real treat with a brand new element at this year's Top of Texas Market. The Vintage Market Flip will feature teams competing to gather the best supplies and give an old item new life by flipping it. The goal? To get your vote!
Each team will be made up of 1 local celebrity, 1 professional and 2 Texomans, picked by the media outlets. They will each work with a $150 budget to get the task accomplished. Each team will be required to include several design elements into their pieces, such as fabric, wood or glass.
At the show it will be up to you to determine the Vintage Market Flip winner. You can help your favorite team by purchasing raffle tickets and casting ballots with the stubs. At the end of the three day show the person whose name is drawn from each raffle bucket will take home the items.
This new element is sure to foster some friendly competition in the Texoma media, all while bringing in funds for the Wichita County Heritage Society.
