4th Sunday MainStrasse Antiques, Etc. is now The Village Vintage & Arts Bazaar. The event, now in its 5th year, is making itself over by adding art and a funkiness to the mix. Now described as a marketplace with purveyors of art, antique, vintage and re-purposed items such as furniture, home goods and decor, architectural elements, tools, jewelry, clothing, gadgets, collectibles and more, organizers want to attract more vendors and more shoppers. This outdoor event is still every 4th Sunday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., April – October, and the first date of 2013 will be Sunday, April 28. The Bazaar is free to shoppers, and all are welcome to browse and buy from vendors lining the 6th Street promenade in MainStrasse Village in Covington, KY and encouraged to eat at one of the nearby locally-owned restaurants and check out the cool shops afterwards, like Julie’s Inspiration Consignment Shoppe, who will be open 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. for their 8th Annual Spring Vintage Trunk Show.
To support the local community, each month The Village Vintage & Art Bazaar is planning on hosting art from a local school or non-profit organization. For April, in celebration of Earth Day, students from St. Joseph Camp Springs Elementary School will be displaying their re-purposed art projects. Grades 5 through 8 created Kinetic Sculptures using re-purposed metal hardware, scrap objects and wire. Grades K-4 welcomed Spring by recycling bottle caps to make their artwork.
