As you read the story of how the Omaha Modernism Guild and OMG Vintage Market began, you will also note our core values. All are welcome here and at our events. Our focus is on enjoying and preserving vintage and sharing that with others in our community!
Elise Schaecher, who operates a mid century modern furniture business with her husband called alittlemorelikehome, began working on the concept of the Omaha Modernism Guild in the summer of 2022. Elise hoped to collaborate with vintage enthusiasts, small businesses and to help introduce others in the Omaha area to mid century modern design!
From the Omaha Modernism Guild came the idea of the OMG Vintage Market. The first event was on November 12, 2022. 15 local vendors participated and over 500 guests attended! The second event was held January 28, 2023 with 23 local vendors and 1,500 guests attended!
Our Spring event was March 18 from 10 am to 4 pm at Keystone Event Center! We had 21 participating vendors, including our sponsors and 1,300 guests attended on a frigid day!

The Omaha Modernism Guild and the OMG Vintage Market appeal to people locally who want to learn more about mid century homes, furniture and décor and want to learn how to preserve them.
Our events are fun. At the OMG Vintage Market, we focus on vintage. Its a chance to leave your cares at the door and escape for an hour or two. You can expect to hear 60s music, see friendly faces and people can feel free to express themselves as we all enjoy our love for vintage and handmade together!
