It's the middle of summer, and we are already feeling the excitment and madness of this years' fall event!
Yes, it's the middle of summer and we are head over heels planning our seventh "Mad Hatter Vintage Flea Market." This year's event features 30 + vendors selling vintage home and garden goods, wonderful antiques, handcrafted goods and unique finds and jewelry. Shoppers will step into a storybook fantasy setting that will delight all their senses, and most importantly they will find an array of one-of-a-kind items, reclaimed and repurposed vintage finds, fabulous food, live music, and lots of decorating inspiration in one of the Northwest 's most beautiful seasons, which is of course our Indian Summer.
Celia and I hosted our first Mad Hatter event in 2009. It was a dream of ours to create a "wonderland shopping experience" for our customers. We are so exicted for this upcoming event and look forward to seeing trucks and trailers loaded up with vintage goodness, some traveling hunderds of miles to take part in this "madness" we love so much! Together we create a community of like-minded friends and artists, all who share the love of junking. It is then the transformation begins. Tents are set up and festooned beyond your wildest imaginatin into a deliciously magical setting. As we get ready for two days of inspiration, shoppping, fun, food, and music and a few surprises!! But, it doesn't stop there, the transformation continues as our curators don their wildest Mad Hatter and friends costumes and get into character....The crazier the better!! And, the customers love the theater of our show as much as we love pitting it on!!
The Mad Hatter is a beautiful collaborative effort, a celebration of things that have endured the test of time!!
Fun begins, Friday evening, September 25, 4pm-9pm & Saturday September 26, 10am-4pm
