We couldn’t wait for summer to arrive and now, as we melt our way through it, it is hard to believe its almost done! As we prepare for the July Market, just like every summer, we watch the weather more than anything else. Of course, we want it to be nice out…but not too nice as then we are afraid everyone will run to the beach…BUT we certainly don’t want any rain! We are at the mercy of Mother Nature and pray for perfect “market” weather! I feel at this point we have pretty much made it through every scenario and nothing can surprise me, other than the amazing dedication of our “regulars,” because NOTHING can keep them away…and we, as a group, are so appreciative of that!
The July Market will have a few changes, as our sweet Terry Ganey of Terry Ganey Art has moved on to bigger pastures. We wish her much luck at her new studio/venue and we are excited to see where she goes from here! Please be sure to follow her page and keep up with her! I will be adding some signs to the hallway which will allow me to showcase the Dixie Belle Paint colors and be a little creative again, and the Mesmerizing Mermaid will be joining us as an indoor vendor along side Tea Lady Diane and Frances LeRoy, AND Suzanne with Amigo Designs will be changing spaces and joining us on the Art Wall in the main warehouse. (You may find all of our indoor vendors pages HERE.)
This months Guest 501(c)3 will be Going Beyond the Pink and the food trucks for the weekend are Port City Puffs N Stuff and 2Bro’s Coastal Cuisine. Our outdoor vendors vary by day and weather permitting, but the market goes on rain or shine!
We look forward to seeing you Friday July 20th 9:00-3:00 and Saturday July 21st 9:00-5:00 (no Sunday hours during the summer months!) at 1987 Andrew Jackson Hwy in Leland!
On a personal note I would like to add:
*If you are interested in joining us at the Lindsay M Benton Foundation Spirit Night at Chick Fil A Market Stree on 7/26 from 5:00-7:00, please be sure to get a voucher at the Market so a percentage of your meal will go to LMBF! Such a simple way to continue to support the foundation! Plus…you have a great excuse NOT to cook and to have Chick Fil A for dinner 🙂 it’s a win/win!
*Congratulations to my husband, Brad, he has decided to move forward with turning the first year of his Blogs from A Father’s Grief into a book and we have started the process of making it a reality. I am so excited, and very proud, of how far he has taken this and cannot wait to see the final product! We will keep you posted on it’s progress 🙂
