Copper Carriage's Annual Spring Market
Time-worn treasures and more worth leaving your burrow for
SATURDAY, MAR. 25
Catering to the Erie community one market at a time, local vintage and antique home decor boutique Copper Carriage is holding their annual Spring Market. Copper Carriage is a carefully curated store filled with unique home goods and decor ranging from smaller items like antique medicine bottles to larger furniture pieces such as desks and sofas. Any and all treasures purchased from Copper Carriage have a long history and unique story. One of the store's primary missions is to repurpose old items by giving them a new life while also maintaining their antique charm.
In an effort to give back to the local community while simultaneously promoting their shop in a creative way, the Hunt family began the tradition of their open-air markets. Stephanie Hunt comments, "The people of this community and the makers, sellers, and artisans are who we do these markets for at the end of the day."
Erie winters can be long, but the Spring Market is truly something to get you out of your burrow. On the day of the market, Chestnut Street gets a whole new look — blocked off by the vintage Copper Carriage van, the street is open for local vendors to line up with a variety of goods and services to offer. Hunt reflects, "Erie is a prime spot for so many creative minds and we like bringing those people together." There is nothing better than drinking coffee, enjoying a local food truck, listening to live music, shopping, and supporting the fellow Erie community all at once.
Expect to find a wide array of vendors at the Spring Market including The Copper Twig, Woodlake Design, Honey Doll Studios, Twig & Berry, Misery Bay, Charmain's Custom Creations, Querida Design, All-American Maker, Eileen Green Farm, Catnip Gardener, and Love in Pennsylvania with refreshments provided by Atacolypse Food Truck, Luminary Distillery, Erie Ale Works, and the ILP Snack Shack.
