Hobnob Market, Danville, IL…

DSCN2802smallSo how excited were we to be accepted into the juried show Hobnob Market earlier this year?  Super excited!  Hobnob Market is based out of Danville, IL which is about an hour drive from where we are located in Terre Haute, IN.  Holly and Scott Snelling were our amazing hosts for this one of a kind, cool as can be vintage marketplace.  They currently offer 3 markets each year, two are in Danville, IL and one in Effingham, IL.  We are happy to be participating in all three this year!DSCN2766small

Marketed as “Not your Grandma’s Antique Show”, the first marketplace took place this past weekend at Kennekuk County Park near Danville.  Us along with roughly 150 other vendors gathered our wares under large tents.  We had one thing in common – our love of all things vintage!

This show is amazing and if DSCN2736smallyou get a chance to come see it I would highly recommend it.  Anything and everything you have ever wanted and things you have never even dreamt of are here.  I’m pretty sure I could live here…forever.  But I had to pull myself together.  I was a vendor after all, I was there for selling not buying…. Don’t worry, I found some time for buying when my husband wasn’t looking.  But back to selling.

DSCN2748We met some of the most incredible people at Hobnob.  Both vendors and clients alike; everyone was so happy to be there and in the moment.  Friday night hosts the “Fresh Picked Party”.  Its a special VIP sort of night consisting mostly of girlfriends and wine.  Did I mention wine?  I didn’t have the chance to try it myself but my clients said it was fabulous.  Everyone shows up in their party attire and gets first pick of the market.  The next morning the market reopens for a full day of fun and shopping.  We saw more husbands and families on Saturday but still everyone was so happy to be there.  Although the weather was soggy and rainy on Friday night, Saturday was a real treat and just perfect!DSCN2732

We had so much fun at this show.  We really got a chance to step up our booth setup and work with some larger display pieces we normally don’t carry out to shows.  We enjoyed talking with people from multiple states who came in town exclusively for this show.  The other vendors made us feel like we were part of their family, they were incredibly welcoming and helpful.  All in all it was a wonderful experience and we literally can not wait for the next market which is this September 11 and 12.  For more information on Hobnob Market check out their website here.
