…and here we go!

2019 is here and so is the first Market! New year, same market? NOPE! We change monthly, sometimes the change is teeny tiny other months it can’t be missed. This month, this year, it’s right in between. We’re excited to have Katie Samsel join Lisa in Vintage Finds and Design with her Art and Frames. Geneva will be joining us as an indoor guest vendor with Hometown Harvest and we are hoping she stays! Our outdoor guest vendor is Girl Scout Troop #648, a lovely bunch of Leland Girls, with GIRL SCOUT COOKIES (you’re welcome!) 

We had 5 whole weeks in between markets so we’ve had some sprucing up done to some of the spaces, mine included. Brad will have several of his lights on sale this market, so be sure to take a peek at his industrial lighting, as he may be taking a break from them until the spring, and we will have several of his books, “A Father’s Grief, A Year of Healing,” available for purchase (when is is up at the warehouse, he will gladly sign them for you!) After a lot of serious thought, he has decided to shift his blog from a consistent weekly posting, to posting when he has something on his heart he needs to share. Although the blog was a wonderful outlet for him, the pressure he put on himself to post regularly added some stress on him. One thing we have learned through the grief process is to listen to your heart and your body and don’t shy away from self care. Grief alone adds a lot of anxiety to your life and something needed to give. The Book, items for the Lindsay M. Benton Foundation and information on Organ Donation will always be available at the market, that will not change. We are already working on a Donate Life Tent for Donate Life Month in April!

I am looking forward to the three classes we have scheduled for Dixie Belle Paint. Be sure to stop by my space and see if the dates work for you, we’d love to have you join us. If you’d like to be on the mailing list to get an update of classes available monthly, just click right here and enter your email address. We are also in discussion with several vendors who also may be interested in having workshops at the market during off market weeks, I am excited to see what they come up with! If YOU are an artist or artisan and you’d like to share your knowledge let me know, we’d love to have you teach workshops and classes for our Seaglass Community! Be sure to ask me for details about renting space.

We hope to see you THIS weekend January 18th through 20th…Friday 9:00-3:00, Saturday 9:00-5:00 & our NEW SUNDAY HOURS 10:00-3:00!
