Vintique This Week! Bargain Barons, Cheesecake, & Opening Early.

March 7th, 2020

Hello Everyone! Here we are, just two months in business. We have enjoyed your visits immensely. Lots of new faces every week. The big news is we decided to open an hour early! We will be open 10am to 5:30am, Tuesday to Saturday at 1279 Osler Street in Regina, SK. Early risers rejoice!


Our friends, Karen and Rob Baron run a YouTube GoPro channel called Bargain Barons. They tour sales, thrift stores, antique shops in and around Saskatchewan. They are owners of an older era home and like to collect items that will match the era of their house. I had some coffin plaques that I knew they would love, and while they were there they bought some books and a 1920s jewelry box. If you haven’t made to our Market yet, see their video here:

The Cookie Lady and ReLiked Vintage & Retro have partnered up to offer individually wrapped cheesecake with coffee for $5! Look for the kitchen booth to get your choice of Saskatchewan Saskatoon or Raspberry flavours.


Thanks again for reading. Ada


Welcome to our Vintique Blog!

February 20th, 2020

New place, new vibe and now, a new website! The idea for YQR Vintique Market began in June 2019. We began actively looking for a space in August 2019. While the collection of vendors changed over the coming months, three friends stayed on course. Bart Schaefer of YQR Mantiques brought a wealth of business experience from his time in the auto wrecking and tow trucking businesses he ran for over 20 plus years. Nicole Slivenski of Niki’s Farm House brought professionalism and talent from her training as a surgical nurse and expertise in painted furnishings. Ada Bennett of ReLiked Vintage & Retro brought tons of experience from her management of large Markets and community work. 


Niki knew the Kozan family, who happened to have a perfect building available for the upscale vintage Market idea. The Kozan family luckily thought it would be a good fit for their building on 7th Avenue & Osler Street in Regina, Saskatchewan. The building at 1279 Osler Street was formerly known as the Garden City Feeder Building. It was built in 1918 and served many agricultural organizations. Later it housed more modern businesses like an electronics shop and kick boxing studio. With it’s antique fir posts, large plank wood floors, and open floor plan it was the best match for the YQR Vintique Market.


By November 2019 we had made a decision to lease the building and had selected the vendors for the space. They were chosen for what they do, their experience in the vintage and antique industry, and the unique genre of goods they would bring to the Market. The final choices were Bob’s Antiques and Collectables, Books We Loved, Cathedral Drygoods, From Past Times Antiques / Vintage, Niki’s Farm House, ReLiked Vintage & Retro, Vinyl Roadshow, and YQR Mantiques. 


On November 6, 2020 we chose a name and Incorporated our Market as a non-profit. We selected YQR Vintique Market as our name. YQR is an official designation of Regina for the airport! If you are looking for something to do on Instagram or Twitter, you type in YQR in the search bar. It is a shortened way to identify our city. Vintique is a word mashup for Vintage + Antique! Of course we are a Market with various vendors. Thus we are YQR Vintique Market Incorporated. 


Next we signed the lease on November 22, 2020. A painting party happened on November 24 & 25. We went with a neutral palette of white walls, gray floors, and black posts and ceiling. Warm woods show up so well in the space! We were very thankful to have the help of Nestor Slivenski and Sher Lachance over the coming weeks. Bart took over all aspects of ensuring repairs were done and signage hung. We had  soft opening in December 2019 as several vendors were set up. Two walls came down, lighting and electrical work was done by the Kozan family, and the final touches were done on spaces into the new year. Several vendors only had access to their renovated spaces 6 days before opening. It was an intense time.


Ada had worked on branding, signage, social media for a couple of months. A Grand Opening Event was planned for January 3, 2020 with the help of our friends Dee Kitsch and Leasa Gibbons at Regina Warehouse District BID. Media began interviews on January 2, 2020 with Global. As well the next morning with CTV Regina Morning Live, and right before the event by the Regina Leader Post. The turnout for our opening was a smash success! We had wonderful, drinks provided by Rebellion Brewery and Outlaw Trail Spirits. Paperback Beverage Company created and served the drinks. One was even called the Vintique, a delicious tiki drink! Fun was had by all and lots of networking happened!


It took a few weeks to recover from all this activity! Our social media following continues to grow and we enjoy an engaged audience. We stand for finding the right person for the right item. We stand for saving wonderful and good things from the landfill. We stand for reusing, revamping, upcycling, and just straight up enjoying quality goods looking for a second life with you! 


Stay tuned to this blog for lots of educational writings on various vintage and antique items. I will update you on Market happenings, events we plan, new pop up vendors that will be visiting for shorter periods, and just keep you up to date! Thanks for reading! Ada
