FALL MARKET 2017
It'll be here before we know it!
PIMPERL PLACE-THE VENUE
If you attended our last market, you probably noticed the new "Pimperl Place" sign at the gate. Well, we've decided that it's time to open Pimperl Place as a venue for other events such as family reunions, concerts, weddings, and whatever else comes along...contact us for more information.
We're adding new structures, big and small, to the grounds every month. We have recently completed the first rental cabin (which looks more like a "cottage" than a cabin!) and plans are in the pipeline for a larger structure that can be rented for events. I had planned an open pavilion, but now we're rethinking that because of our hot summers and the unbearable humidity...it's becoming more of a barn-like structure that will have a kitchen and bathrooms-a big open structure with a fireplace. It'll be climate controlled, perfect for all weather conditions! Little white lights will be strung up everywhere and it's going to be the venue that'll come to mind as you plan your wedding or other special event. Keep watching the website as I share more.

SPRING MARKET RECAP
Spring Market 2017 was a great success! I had lots of help this time, so I actually had a little time to walk around, visit, shop a little, and enjoy it myself!
I even had time to get in a picture with our special guests! Robert (Bob) Perino, Southern Living's Creative Director, and Buffy Hargett, the Sr. Photo Stylist, were here y'all, and we had so much fun! They brought lots of smiles, magazines, 50th Anniversary book giveaways, and creativity with them.
They posed for lots of pictures and signed autographs.
Buffy and Phyllis (Buffy's sister who lives nearby) shared tips on how to use vintage objects in the home in unexpected ways.
If you're reading this Bob, Buffy and Phyllis, I really enjoyed having you all here with us and it's much appreciated! You are all welcome to visit anytime!
We also had the BEST lineup of vendors, and such a wide variety of high-quality goods. Many of the same vendors have already told me that they plan to be back in the fall, and that's always a good thing!
(To see pictures of some of the goods that were available, please check out the "Gallery" for Spring Market 2017. I hope to have them all up soon!)
We loved our entertainment by Gene Lane who was set up on the porch of the new cabin with his guitar...people LOVED him and want to see him back again, so guess what? We've booked him again for Fall Market 2017! People are asking for lots of tables and chairs to be set up so that they can spend the day, just enjoying the atmosphere and music. We can do that. Thank you all to our amazing vendors, and all who came out to see us "Down in the Delta."
