Vintage Treasures Market Makes a Classy Move!

It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, right? Well, put several women together and there are bound to be changes!!

After careful consideration of all the pros and cons, a decision was made to hold our Vintage Treasures Market
on the south lawn of the Victorian Lace Inn rather than at the fairgrounds as originally planned. Basically, the decision was based on three factors. First, there is greater general visibility to passing traffic at this location. Second, the ambiance is just soooooo much better. Really, would you rather shop for antiques, vintage treasures and other one-of-a-kind goodies in a pole barn or at a beautiful brick Victorian house and the adjoining yard?

I know, it's a no brainer. So, we will be in big tents (similar to those pictured here) on the lawn of the Victorian Lace Inn. [Oh, you are wondering about the third reason. Well, um, how do I say this politely? Nicer potties.]

And if this location looks and sounds familiar to you, it should! This is the same place where our Women in Business group holds our Trash to Treasure Charity Auction during St. Charles' Gladiolus Days in August. We will, of course, be doing that again this year -- our 6th year. These pictures are from last year's charity auction.

Meanwhile, mark your calendar for June 19th and 20th and be sure to come to the Vintage Treasures Market at 1512 Whitewater Avenue in beautiful St. Charles MN. There are vendor-artisans coming from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Some of them specialize in vintage and antique pieces of the past. Others focus on things they have recycled, repurposed, and restyled into true one-of-a-kind pieces.

You really do need to come and see for yourself. Vintage treasures await you!!!
