SOUTHERN LIVING MAGAZINE
I am beyond happy to welcome Robert (Bob) Perino, Creative Director of Southern Living Magazine, and Buffy Hargett, Sr. Stylist, to our Spring Market! They will be joining us on Saturday, May 6. Mark your calendar now to attend the meet and greet and enjoy some other fun surprises!
THE TRAVELING SHOW
The Market Beautiful in Laurel is organized and brought to us by Jana and Vanessa of The Vintage Whites Market. And, guess what? Ben and Erin from HGTV's Home Town will be special guests!!! It's an event you don't want to miss!
And, I've just added another event to the 2017 lineup-The Peach Tree Vintage Market in Clanton, AL. This indoor market will be held in the heart of old town Clanton in a beautiful venue with exposed brick walls! This one is organized by Elizabeth Ann's and Micah's Treasures.
OUR RESIDENT ALLIGATORS
CAUTION! Please be aware of the fact that we have a couple of alligators that hang out down near the creek. For your safety, please stay in the market area, unless you are on a Down in the Delta guided tour.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT SPRING MARKET
We are busy getting Pimperl Place are prettied up for the market! I always love this time of year-new bright green leaves on the trees, the brown grass is green again, and it's time to head to the garden centers to add more color to the yard! The cabin is almost finished and I'll be landscaping it later this week. The little cabin is going to serve as our vendor lounge during the market, so I'm excited to share it and show off our little jewel!
We are so excited to welcome 35 amazing vendors! I have never had to turn away vendors, but this time I did. We filled all of our spaces a week before the registration deadline, which is a blessing, but I hate to turn away wonderful vendors with great merchandise. It is part of the plan to grow the market gradually, so as our shopping crowds grow, so will our vendor line-up. I think you'll be happy with the fabulous offerings by these great vendors, many of whom are returning from previous Down in the Delta markets.
