Attention shoppers: this is something you won’t want to miss! The Market Beautiful is bringing their award-winning show to town! Over 80 vendors, both local and out-of-state, will line Front Street this weekend with fabulous vintage finds and handmade merchandise. Local stores and merchants will be open as well, and some will even extend their store hours.
The Market Beautiful started in a garage in 2010 with 5 vendors and has grown to shows in 5 states with over 100 vendors and 5,000 attendees on average at each show. This marks their first show in the south and we can’t wait to shower them with our southern hospitality! Jana Roach and Vanessa Pleasants work full-time to bring an amazing and unique experience to customers, along with the most wonderfully curated vintage finds! In between markets, Jana and Vanessa run their blog and manage their online community via Instagram which has grown to nearly 100,000 dedicated and engaged followers. Jana and Vanessa carefully select and curate vendors for each show to ensure shoppers are treated to the very best of the best. Many vendors travel with them because of the success they’ve seen. They truly care about their vendors and customers alike, as well as keeping the show fresh, exciting, and unique!
There will be something for everyone at The Market Beautiful. Enjoy live music from Tasche De La Rocha, food trucks and sweet/cold treats, coffee, and free kids activities. Laurel’s own Clairmont & Company will have a kids craft area and Six Point Furniture will present a workshop. Erin and Ben Napier, hosts of HGTV’s Home Town, will help kick off the inaugural market with a meet and greet too. The Market Beautiful also offers prizes for the first 50 in line and a lot more!
