All winter I complain about the cold, I pray for the summer and swear I will not complain about the heat. That isn’t necessarily a lie, since I have been consistently complaining about the rain and humidity for the past 2 weeks, not really the “heat” per se. Since I always try to look at the bright side, I will say, my grass has never been greener! Not only is the rain such an inconvenience in general, I truly hate it for all the local vendors who have to deal with deciding whether or not to go to their many outdoor events throughout what should be their busiest season. Of course we need rain, but it would be so helpful if it occurred between midnight and 4 AM. (I can dream can’t I?!) Anyway, eventually the rain will stop and summer will come blasting in, I will do my best not to complain, but don’t be surprised….

Most of you know besides being a place to shop and socialize we do love to give back. Each month at Seaglass we have a local 501c3 join us as an outdoor vendor (when they can’t attend we are sure to have info available about their Foundation and we collect monetary donations for them). So far this year we have had the pleasure of hosting Island Arts & Culture Alliance, Cape Fear Raptor, Special Pedals (who will be back in August!), Lindsay M Benton Foundation (In honor of Donate Life Month) & Semper Fi Fund. This month we are thrilled to have Roots of Recovery joining us. Along with monetary donations we will be accepting clothing, so clean your closets out before heading to SSM for the June Market!

We are also looking forward to Going Beyond the Pink, Champions for Compassion & Merits Pit Bull joining us. November and December are set aside each year for Good Shepherd Center.

On a personal note, and since I am mentioning Foundations, LMBF is looking for sponsors for our 2nd annual Volleyball Tournament being held at Capt’n Bill’s on September 29th, if you own a business and would like to join us please contact us and we will gladly get the info to you.

Seaglass is Father’s Day weekend this month and we’re hoping you will swing by and get your dad, and of course, yourself, some goodies! We look forward to seeing you June 15th & 16th (we are back to summer hours, which means we are closed on Sunday, so you only have two days this month July and August) when in doubt, please check the website!

My name is Kelli, I live in Leland, NC and I own Seaglass Salvage Market, a once a month indoor/outdoor Meet the Maker Market. On the third weekend of each month you will find artists, artisans and entrepreneurs selling handmade, homemade, resale and retail items out of our two warehouses. We also have food trucks each day of Market, as well as outdoor vendors and outdoor seating (weather permitting). We are open, rain or shine, the **3rd Weekend** of every month! Friday, Saturday and Sun 9:00-3:00 and can be found at 1987 Andrew Jackson Hwy in Leland, NC. Once a month, every month, all year round!
