I have to share more details about this wonderful event I attended in July in Avon Lake, the Summer Market. I’m sure many of you have been there before as it has been held for the past 9 years! But it was my first time attending and I just had so much fun I decided it deserved its own post with a few more pictures than I posted on Facebook or Instagram at the time.
The setting for this market could not be better, right on Avon’s lakefront park at the end of Rt 83 next to the gorgeous historical Thomas Folger Home. The market also held a fundraising raffle of vintage and handmade items housed in the Lake House, a smaller property available for party rentals in the center of the market.
Some of my favorite vendors were there with lots of great goodies to share. Urban Chic Decor, a sponsor of the market, brought Memphis Drive-In memorabilia including marquis letters and drive-in speakers along with a tent full of refinished furniture and vintage decor. I absolutely loved Sew a Fine Seam‘s booth overflowing with whimsical signs, beautiful handmade pillows, and unique finds.
I was also delighted to discover many “new to me” vendors with so many creative pieces. I could not get enough of the anchor-themed goods at Girls By The Lake, the booth run by market founders, Kristen Weeden and Erin Stack. I truly admire what they are doing for Avon Lake and the city of Cleveland (read more on cleveland.com). And I spent a fair amount of time in Renaissance Man‘s booth with my own hubby and renaissance man, exploring the nooks and crannies of eclectic, refurbished goodies.
There were many great food vendors as well, including the Fahrenheit food truck and Cafe Melissa. We chose to stop by Moosehead for dinner after the market.
I’m so pleased we found this market and enjoyed it thoroughly – I hope you check it out next year! I know we certainly will.
