Hi, and welcome to Down in the Delta and Pimperl Place! If you thought you were coming to a "vintage and antiques market" site, you didn't make a mistake! It's still us, John and Judy, hosts of the Down in the Delta Vintage & Antiques Markets. While we will still do the occasional pop-up market, read on to learn about some changes!
A wise friend recently told me, "If you want to make God laugh, just tell Him your plans." Well, God must be having a good laugh at us right about now.
Going into our third year of vintage and antiques markets, we felt the need to cancel our Spring Market 2018 to focus on a trip to Virginia to plan our daughter's wedding, the actual wedding, and the completion of our second cabin, but we had planned to get back on track with our Fall/Holiday Market 2018. That was OUR plan. God had other plans.
We are now full-time caregivers for a relative, so we're putting the twice-a-year big market events on the back burner. When and if our circumstances change (and God approves!) we'll do another large market, but until then...we're a venue with some occasional small pop-up markets.
We will be having some "Inventory Clearance" type sales to liquidate our own vintage and antique goodies. Please watch our social media pages for dates. One is planned for October.
UPDATE: We weren't able to get everything out of the warehouse for our Liquidation Sale, so there will be a Part Two in November! Please keep watching Facebook and Instagram for dates.
So, I mentioned an occasional "pop-up market." These smaller events will be simple tents set up with great vintage merchandise--no porta-potties, no entertainment, no food vendors, and no admission! We should be able to do our markets in a much simpler way, still offering fabulous merchandise, but without all the time consuming and expensive trimmings. End result is you still get to go home with some fine treasures! Hopefully, what we do will still be worthy of another appearance in Flea Market Style's Roundup listings!
We are now focusing most of our daily work on Pimperl Place as a wedding or special event venue, our two cabins (soon to be a third!), and working on the walking trails. We are also in the process of adding three RV full hook-up sites. Stay tuned... (Oh, and this all calls for more flowers! It gives me great joy to work on the grounds with flowers, and I've missed that for a couple of years now.) Pimperl Place is a great choice for your photo sessions--perfect for engagement or outdoor bridal shoots to set the theme for your woodland wedding! And speaking of woodland weddings....well, we have woods, and a creek, and lots of huge trees and lots of moss.
