The monthly Parisian-style Market Day features an abundance of vintage and antique merchandise from local vendors, including Burlap and Bees. This vendor fee allows crafters to hock their wares at this bustling gathering. It may be applied toward two people at one Market Day event, or one person at two Market Day events. <p>
Burlap and Bees
Heirloom French dressers. An unpolished Patina silver set with an ornate teapot and saucers. A bag of old skeleton keys. An aged wooden box with the words “Café de Paris” painted on it. This is just a sampling of the many treasures that can be unearthed at Burlap and Bees, a vintage store with a distinctly European ambience.
In addition to perusing the antique-stuffed store or attending monthly Market Day events brimming with other vendors, shoppers can learn how to create their own sought-after pieces during workshops. These educational sessions teach participants how to make jewelry, as well as how to lend furniture pieces an aged look without having to glue grey beards onto them.
