Island Mavins Handmade and Vintage Market July 15th/2012

I am so pleased that our first market was a success despite the rain!! We watched the long range forecast for weeks prior and were so hoping for SUN......but unfortunately you just can't control the weather!  Luckily it was mainly overcast in the morning so our vendors could get set up. And the rain held off until mid afternoon allowing those that attended to wander amongst our many vendors enjoying our beautiful market setting at  Point Ellice House and Gardens! 

Thank you to our so very talented vendors for all their hard work and the amazing selection of good quality items they brought to sell at our market! They really out did themselves!


Thank you to our wonderful volunteers for making this day a special one! And finally a big thank you to the many people who braved the wet weather to come and check out our first market..........we really appreciated that!  I was very pleased to see lots of happy people leaving with newly found treasures! 

PS As we plan on making the "Island Mavins Handmade and Vintage Market" a yearly event make sure you check back often as we will be posting future market event dates!
