A Garden Market with Friends
It's been awhile since my last post. We spent February and March preparing for two big shows, the Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top, TX Apr. 2-6 and Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, MN Apr. 11-13. We left Texas on a Sunday morning during a summer-like thunderstorm. By Wednesday we were wearing our snow boots in Minnesota in a snowstorm. What a fun, educational, tiring, exhilarating whirlwind!
Since Junk Bonanza it's been full steam ahead preparing for the first event on the year at our farm, which we're calling A Garden Market with Friends. This is a new event for us, replacing our big vintage + handmade vendor market. A Garden Market with Friends will be a more intimate event, with a few local makers setting up in our one-room schoolhouse, a coffee/wine trailer, church ladies' lunch tent, make-&-take fairy gardens, and of course lots and lots of vintage and antique goods from our hunting and gathering. My good friend Barbara of Rusty Memories will be a guest vendor with her vintage planted containers, flowers and garden "junk". It's shaping up to be a great weekend, with nice weather predicted and lots of great shopping to be had. For now, it's time for a shower and couch nap, as there's lots to be done in the next 4 days. Come see us if you're in the neighborhood!
