This is a vintage and antiques market with other high-quality products offered as well.

Please, no direct sales vendors unless you have been personally invited.
THE TRAVELING SHOW
As I post this, we're less than two weeks away from VMD of Mobile! I participated in the first VMD Market last fall, and it was an amazing event. I'm so thankful to be a part of it once again....now, I just need to work really hard to get everything ready!
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.

WHAT'S NEW IN 2017
I have been busy visiting estate sales and such, sourcing fabulous new finds for upcoming spring markets (lots of ironstone and chippy goodness!) and working on those broken treasures that are begging for new beginnings. Yes, sanders are out and I'm slinging paint!
Workshops (See new tab at the top of the page!) -one on leather cuff bracelets and another on soldered jewelry- are planned and will be taught at my home studio at Pimperl Place over the next couple of months. These are always as much fun for me as they are for the people who attend to learn! I always fix a fancy little lunch for them (because I enjoy cooking for friends!) and it's a fun little break to relax and learn about new friends during the workshops.
We have also been busy working on a cabin on our property so that we will have a rental unit for weekend getaways...and other cabins are in our plans. These will come in handy during our markets, so that vendors from out of town will have a place on-sight to stay during the duration of our markets! We're excited about that project!!
I show sneak peeks of my adventures over on Instagram frequently, so if you would like to see them, you can follow us @downinthedeltavintagemarket. If you do facebook, we can be found there at downinthedeltavintageandantiquesmarket. If you "like" us on facebook, follow and click on "see these posts first" so that you don't miss anything. And, of course, you can just check in here from time to time to see what's posted.
I have also announced the dates for Fall Market, 2017. Mark your calendars now! It will happen October 20 & 21. I am hoping to be able to announce some special guests for this one too, so stay tuned!
