Looking for something to do this weekend? How about a market in a quaint country setting but filled with loads of treasures? You need to check out the Homegrown Vintage Market!
Guys!!! Third Season is happening this coming weekend! I’m so excited! And I have to say, pretty relaxed… We have a great line up of vendors, some old, some new plus the ever popular food truck!
Here’s the low down on this year’s vendors – ‘Flora’s Finds‘ and ‘Angela’s Attics‘ are both back and are certainly crowd favourites. Shane will be as entertaining as ever and Angela will be doing some FAT Paint demos throughout the day, too. We also have Norene returning with her vintage goodies. Of course, I’ll be set up with some vintage and handmade Farm Fresh treasures. The girls will be doing the Lemonade Stand and the sucker pull, too.
But this year, we have some new friends joining us! The Pictou County food truck, ‘WANNA LICK MY PLATE‘, will be there serving up some tasty food for the day. I’m also excited that my Instagram friend, Chris Bennett, of ‘Christine Bennett Design’ and ‘Lucky Me Lifestyle‘, is coming with her hand-painted designs….chicken mugs, guys! Rachel will be there with ‘Vintage Treasures’ as will Beth Cole with her goodies from ‘Summer Friends’….I can’t wait to see what they’ve got! Laura of ‘Lumpylu’s Treasures’ will also have even more vintage goodness! I can’t even believe all the awesome vendors we have this year with vintage finds for you!
‘Lodestone Soap Company‘ will have us all smelling good after shopping their booth come market day. Plus, Joyful Gardens will be there with fresh-cut blooms and rumour has it she has some pottery vases as well. It’ll smell good on Saturday at the Hall!
If you need directions, click HERE to see the location on Google Maps. I have put signs up along the way that simply say ‘MARKET’ so that you know what you’re looking for. Either Highway 6 or Highway 256 will take you to the Meadowville Station Road and then Black River Road is off that. The market is at the cutest community hall in Meadowville.
I get asked often why I started this market. And really, what I want to create, what I want to happen, is to draw people out into a country setting and create a sense of community and comradery as people connect with other people of similar interests. I want people to linger, spend some time and chat with their neighbours, and strangers. There’s a huge market in Roundtop, Texas that is HUGE and Roundtop has a population of barely anyone. Now, I realize I’m no Roundtop but I love what this event has become. I love the buzz it’s creating, I love the people who want to be a part of it, whether it’s setting up a booth or coming and spending some time looking at the booths and sitting on the grass enjoying the atmosphere. So, when you pull up to this year’s market, take a deep breath of country air and prepare to slow down and just enjoy.
See you Saturday!
