How many vendors? – We are currently expecting around 30 vendors with a variety of antiques, vintage, architectural salvage, up-cycled and handmade goods.

Will there be project pieces (not already painted)? – Yes! Green Living Resale is cleaning out the warehouse and we will be bringing project pieces you can purchase as well as Fusion Mineral Paint and the remainder of our CeCe Caldwell chalk and Clay Paint stock.

Can we shop early? – Sorry, no early birds. The gates will open at 9am on Friday. Show hours are 9:00am-5:00pm Friday and Saturday and 9:00am-2:00pm on Sunday.

When is the best time to shop? – That depends! If you would like first pick, come early on Friday. Early Saturday will be good as well as some vendors will restock their booth. If you want the best deals come on Sunday!

Are tickets good for multiple days? – Yes! You will receive a wrist band at the ticket gate, if you would like to come back multiple times simply keep your wrist band on.

Why charge admission? – This has only been asked once but it is a valid question so I will answer it. Green Living Resale is hosting this event. The cost of hosting a show like this is in the thousands of dollars. Insurance, advertising, fencing, security, gates, gravel, ticket booth, event staff, tables, chairs, tents, portable potties are just some of the expenses. Hopefully the small admission price will offset these costs

How does the $2 off coupon work? – You can save the coupon to your smart phone and show it at the ticket gate or you can print it and bring it with you. If you have a large party, or family, one coupon is good for everyone.

Where do we park? – When you come down Windancer Lane you will see the parking entrance and parking attendants will direct you where to park.

Will vendors take credit cards? – The ticket gate is CASH only. Some vendors may take cards, some may not. It is a good idea to bring cash.

If I buy a large piece how will I load it? – There will be a loading zone close to the event and if you need help ask the staff member on the John Deere Gator.

Is there a spot to sit and rest? – Yes, there will be tables and chairs set up near the food tents, feel free to take a break and have a bite to eat!
