The second annual Vintage Fair at Barnstormer Farm in Medford was perfectly chic and shabby. Everything about this event screams retro gold. Comprised of vendors from around the state and Northern California, the vintage fair is one for the books. Follow our host Danielle as she rummages through refurbished gems and one of a kind treasures. Everyone can agree this is truly a uniquely rogue experience. http://www.barnstormerfarm.com/ http://travelmedford.org/
