The Lemon Grove Market

DIY Workshops at the Lemon Grove Market


New hours start on Saturday, July 1, 2017!  The Lemon Grove Market will open at 9:00 a.m. to beat the summer heat and will close at 3:00 p.m.


Do-it-Yourself Workshops are being added to the calendar this month also.  Hop over to the website and check out what is scheduled.  They all sound like so much fun! 

I've made some new hand-stamped jewelry, wood signs, decorator throw pillows, and I've got one vintage wooden school chair painted up really cute plus an old window with a farmer's market design etched into the glass panes that I'll be bringing with me on July 1, 2017.  YOU won't want to miss out on these one-of-a-kind hand made items!

Hope to see you there!  Make sure you stop by space #14 and say hello!
