Hi there! Due to a schedule conflict last weekend at the fairgrounds, Grayslake had to switch weekends. However, Joe and I are unable to be there this weekend -- we both have some family business to attend to. But here is your coupon just the same!! Go, shop, have fun. And Happy Father's Day to all the fine fellows out there. xo

Join us Saturday for Urban Farmgirl's Main Street Market

Join us this Saturday, June 13, from 9 am to 5 pm, for the Urban Farmgirl's Main Street Market! We will be one of 120 featured vendors whose booths are tucked among the lovely Victorian buildings on the grounds of the Midway Village  Museum, 6799 Guilford Road, Rockford, IL 61107. We are going all-out vintage farmhouse and will have tons of original paint, containers, architectural pieces, garden and more. Plus lots of handmades and artwork. Can't wait to share it all with you. Honestly, the show was one of our total new favorites last year. You won't want to miss it. Pre-sale tickets were gone in record time! There will also be live music and food trucks. Check out the show's Facebook page for details and stay tuned to our page for a peek at what we are bringing. Can't wait! xo

For a while now, Joe and I have sensed that things were changing. Our customers were looking for something different. So at the beginning of last year, we started looking more carefully at what we could do to meet those needs. More edited loads. More created stuff. We call our new direction "5563 Vintage." And we can't wait to share it with you! As part of this new direction, we are partnering with the Original Treasure Mart in Kokomo. We've taken a BIG space in the store and will be working with them on special events. We've also started doing some estate work. Wait 'til you see what we found!! We'll be bringing many farm-friendly, rustic finds to the Urban Farmgirl's Main Street Market next weekend in Rockford. Can't wait for you to see! Join us next week on Facebook for a sneak peek. xo
