Antique & Vintage Show Returns to Main Street

The June edition of the monthly LoveHendo Saturdays includes the 30th Annual Antique & Vintage Show

June 12 marks thirty years for the downtown Hendersonville Antique & Vintage Show, and the first year under new event organizer, Uncommon Market of Asheville. This year, the show will be held in conjunction with LoveHendo Saturday, an open street activity with Main Street being closed to vehicular traffic to encourage shopping, dining and enjoying downtown.

“Robert and Rebecca Nicholas, long time dealers, antique lovers and owners of Splurge in the Asheville Rivers Arts District, have taken over management of this yearly event,” said Jamie Carpenter, downtown manager with the City of Hendersonville. “They were a natural fit to take on the management of the event, bringing a high level of experience with successful regional events, boasting the Asheville area’s largest curated, pop-up market for antiques, art, vintage decor, jewelry and beyond.”

This annual event attracts a variety of dealers from around our region and beyond to the streets and sidewalks of Main Street in Historic Downtown Hendersonville. Complementing the year-round presence of antique and home goods stores that call downtown home, customers will find a great variety of vintage, handmade, rustic, mid-century, industrial, up-cycle, collectibles, antiques and other wares.

The 30th Annual Antique and Vintage Show will take place one day only, rain or shine, Saturday June 12th from 8 am to 4 pm. Vendors will be on the sidewalks and Main Street from 1st Avenue through 6th Ave. Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic with the avenues remaining open.

Information for vendors can be found at uncommonmarketasheville.com

 

LoveHendo Saturday is an open street activity taking place the Second Saturday of each month May – December (except for September) to provide a unique downtown experience for all ages. Downtown businesses expand into the street to provide open air activity and experiences. LoveHendo Saturday partners up with several downtown events. The Carolina Classic Car Club will fill into Main Street in the evenings after daytime activity with classic cars on display.

 

Save the date for July 10 LoveHendo Saturday where Downtown Merchants are preparing a party for everything with a special themed LoveHendo Saturday “Celebrate: The Remix.” Did you miss a big birthday party in 2020? What about a wedding that got delayed or an engagement that didn’t get the full celebration it deserved? Many graduations, proms, anniversaries, and more were missed or reduced last year, and as we turn the corner to a healthy and happy summer 2021, downtown Hendersonville wants to be your place to celebrate. See information at lovehendo.com/celebrate.
