Carol Skinger and Audra Azoury are teaming up to share a vendors tent at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP) in Schenley Park July 20 and 21, 2013. Business hours are 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. It is FREE and open to the public. We will be located in Vendors Village to sell our work during race weekend. Artist Carol Skinger will be featuring her Vintage Schenley Park Map, so perfectly matched to this venue. Jewelry Designer Audra Azoury will be selling her Pittsburgh inspired jewelry. Audra pairs strong industrial materials, modern laser cutting technology, and gritty urban inspired finishes with classic lines and shapes to produce jewelry that doesn’t have to scream for attention to get it. Her work sells at Heinz History Center and the Carnegie Museum shop, among other places.
Where? Vendor Village is located on the fairway and around the green on the 2nd hole and around the tee of the 3rd hole of the golf course. Bob O’Conner Golf Course at Schenley Park 5370 Schenley Drive Pittsburgh, PA 15217
Vendor Village is marked with signage along Schenley Drive, directly across from the Golf Course Clubhouse. It is known as Gate A, and also one of the main stops of the 15 or so shuttle busses that run free all day Saturday and Sunday. The Vendor tents are along a pedestrian pathway that leads from Schenley Drive to British Car Day(!), Patron Parking and good viewing location of the race course. It is the entrance that many use to start their walk through the Car Shows. It is also shown on PVGP’s Schenley map on line and in the Race Programs. (Note this is exactly why Carol Skinger’s vintage map is needed!!!)
What’s up on Saturday July 20? Schenley Park Car International Shows and Qualifying Races. Especially famous and close to everyone’s heart is British Car Day. Located in the middle of the golf course it is the anchor of our International Car Show. British Car Day, sponsored by the Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association.

The Vintage Grand Prix mission – To maintain a world-class racing event that is free to the public to give all money to our two charities. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix’s mission is to produce a world-class vintage racing event in order to raise funds to help provide residential care, treatment and support for developmentally disabled individuals in the Pittsburgh region. Because of the generous support and contributions from our sponsors, and the dedication of our volunteers, we have been able to donate $3.2 million to two deserving charities: the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School.
