Vintage Fix Market gives back to the community

The Vintage Fix Market was at the Benton County Fairgrounds on Saturday, December 1st, for shoppers to buy locally made goods and have a chance to donate to charity.

There were over 80 vendors with handmade and repurposed items.

Admission fees were $5 and part of the proceeds will be donated to 2nd Harvest, a nonprofit that helps fight hunger in Washington. After you paid, organizers pressed your hand with a “#gotmyvintagefix” stamp.

Danyell Walker Diaz and Stacia Cunningham run the Vintage Fix Market and this was their second Christmas market.

“This is the second one,” Walker Diaz said, “and we are going to keep doing them in the winter.”

Walker Diaz also remodeled a trailer into a photo booth. The trailer had a couch for people to sit on, plenty of props, and an L.E.D. ring light for better exposure.

The pictures were free but you could leave a donation. All of the money raised will be donated to 2nd Harvest.

“This is a way we can give back to the community.” Walker Diaz said.

Santa Claus also made an appearance for photos at 3 p.m.

There were several food trucks set up and live music. The event ran from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
