We've been living in Chester County, PA for eight years now, and it's been a family tradition to visit this festival that's in our neighboring town. Each year we tell ourselves that we should get a space and sell our vintage finds, since it is packed with thousands of people from all over the Philadelphia area (and far beyond). Well, we finally made the leap!
Visit us at the 29th Annual Mushroom Festival on Saturday, Sept. 6th & Sunday, Sept 7th in Kennett Square, PA: "The Mushroom Capital of the World"
There are 200 vendors of ALL kinds, cooking demonstrations, tours of mushroom farms, children's entertainment, an old-fashioned carnival, mushroom everything (including ice cream). As for me, I've been eyeing up the Soup & Wine Event, which is on Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
Here's a map of the festival and the schedule of events. Our space will be on the "A" block, which is between Elm St. and Willow St. Also, be sure to stop by the fabulous mid-century modern shop Scout & Annie, which is located right along the festival route, at 125 E. State St. They won Main Line Today Magazine's Best Vintage Shop award last year!
You can find all of the information you need on the Mushroom Festival website.
And don't miss these other fun vintage events happening the same weekend:
Vintage Garage Sale
Sept. 5 4pm-9pm

We are sorry that we are missing this sale - we'll be getting ready for the Mushroom Festival. You won't walk away empty-handed at this fun evening vintage market in a parking garage in downtown West Chester.
Brandywine View Antiques Massive Barn Market

Chadds Ford, PA
Only ten minutes from the Mushroom Festival, you'll find an antique shop packed to the gills with treasures, along with several additional vendors on the surrounding property. And Founding Fathers BBQ, which is reason alone to stop by.
P.S. I haven't been writing on the blog lately, but you can find me on our freshvintage Facebook page all the time. I'm also on Instagram at @freshvintage. And my husband, Chris, has his own Instagram account, @freshintageforsale, which is strictly for selling our vintage finds. Follow along!
