OK gals! You KNOW we LOVE LOVE LOVE our Vintage Markets! Who is planning on going to the Front Porch Pickins Vintage Market this weekend? The best part about this event, well other than the merch, is the fact that this market was put together by 3 moms that wanted to see something of its kind/magnitude in the Peoria Area. Y’all this is about 15 minutes from my house and I couldn’t be happier about that!!! I fully intend on bringing the whole fam bam! And guess what?! It’s FREE (did you NOT read the header?! – Hehe!)

You’re supporting 3 hardworking moms that have put together the first annual (we hope) event that is sure to be amazing. I was REALLY touched by their recent post on the Front Porch Pickin Facebook Page: “Over a year ago we committed to hosting the west valley’s first large scale market. We did it for several reasons. One was to bring a platform to local businesses, like ourselves, to show their goods and talent. Another was to provide an additional source of income to our families. Yet another was that we, along with other west valley residents, were sick of driving all over town for the really GOOD shows. We have invested a lot of money, effort, prayers, and time into this market. We have done everything in our power to ensure this event is excellent for all involved. Now, we give it to God and to YOU. YOU- the customer- hold the future of the west side shows in your hands. We can bring the top vendors, provide the great facility, have the best staff and press, but YOU showing up is what matters. YOU inviting your friends and family to support local talent is the key. So please, partner with us! Share this status. Tag your friends who like unique gifts, handmade items, and vintage goods. YOU, the customer, are the key to GOOD markets. Thank you for all of your support. We literally couldn’t do this without you!”

So grab a friend, OR your whole family like me, and check out this vintage market. Fun and goodies are sure to be had!
