Photography Rosie Goulet, 1st Annual Spring Vintage Market
Spring is here and folks in the Mid-Columbia are hitting the antique shops to find those modern farmhouse pieces that will liven up their spring décor and add something new. Local markets and getting out to shop and mingle with neighbors is one of the many charms of living in Eastern Washington.
The 2nd Annual Spring Vintage Market at Sugar Beet JUNKtion is organized by: Connie Lamb, Karen Elliott, Lisa Lamb, Lindsay Bodnar, Monica Lamb and Shannon Powers-lifelong friends, Bible study sisters and all former Pasco School District employees who share a love of vintage, re-purposed furniture and unique finds.
The market will be at Sugar Beet JUNKtion, named for the history of farming sugar beets in the area. Many friends grew up in the 60’s and will remember the tall, brick building where sugar beets were refined into sugar. They opened their first Spring Vintage Market last May with twenty participating vendors. This May, they will have thirty participating vendors.
Sugar Beet JUNKtion is located at 161 Sunset Loop, Pasco WA-eight miles north of Pasco on Rd. 68. Follow the signs. It will be on a 5 acre property and you won’t miss it! Market will open at 9 am and go until 4 pm. $5 Admission (under 12 free). Parking is free and attendants will be helping. Cash preferred.
Fans of vintage re-purposed furniture, antiques, jewelry, pillows and more will not want to miss this local market! Live music will be provided by local area high school kids. There will be baked goods and lunch items available for purchase.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Young Life, a program designed to give youth access to non-denominational, Christ-centered mentoring. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will also benefit Beautifully Inspired, a non-profit that supports families trying to adopt foster kids and also families who are unable to adopt but can help by providing essential supplies to improve the lives of foster kids and their adoptive families.
