It’s time for another City Farmhouse Pop-up Fair Y’all and I love a Pop-up Fair, but I especially love a City Farmhouse one and in exactly three weeks the June Pop-up Fair is happening. Mark your calendar for June 19th and 20th in Leiper’s Fork at the Buddy Killen Estate. You don’t want to miss this especially if you’ve never been before. Next week I’ll be giving away some tickets!
You’ll love the vendors and they travel from all over the United States just to be at this Pop-up Fair for two days. Bring a truck because you’ll want to fill it with all your treasures. Come to think of it, I wish I had a truck – an old restored pick-up truck in turquoise.
Sigh…that’s another story.
I’m especially excited for this Pop-up Fair because of my new-found love of gardening. I actually have vegetables growing in my garden and it’s very exciting, but I have a lot to learn and Kim Leggett is featuring some amazing gardening demonstrations presented by some of the vendors.
As Kim told me, “This show is all about focusing on our amazing vendors and showcasing their talents. Our attendees told us what they wanted, and we’re making it happen.”
If you love gardening you won’t want to miss presentations by Pamela Anthony, the face of Beehind Thyme Farm & Garden. She’ll be presenting about “The Heirloom Gardener.” I’m learning about this and can’t wait to see what she has to share. Pamela is also doing a separate demonstration on how to create a living tabletop garden with succulents!
Want to know how to create a raised bed garden? Joni & Casey McCarty, the agricultural curators at Homestead Manor are going to show you exactly what you need to do to create your own organic raised garden. They should know because they’re responsible for growing all the vegetables at Andy Marshall’s new Homestead Manor in Thompson’s Station. In case you didn’t know, Kim Leggett has been decorating this unique space.
Ever visit Jason Counce of DIRT Home & Garden in Nashville? If not…you should, but you also can see him in action at the pop-up fair. He’ll be sharing how to combine the old with the new and create your very own Americana look!
The Reclaimed Designer is a showcase open both days that will inspire you to search for wares to enhance your outdoor space. I love that we’ll get to see exactly how to put things together, because I don’t have a Kim Leggett eye.
But wait…there’s more!
Beth Lewis of Olde Thyme Marketplace will show you how to see your outdoor treasures in a whole new way. Beth has a knack for figuring out exactly how to use items like rakes, fences, wagons etc. in your home decor. Fun stuff I think.
If there’s a wedding in your future you won’t want to miss Steve McLellan of Garden Delights in his demonstration of just how to use flowers and greenery to create and elegant wedding.
And finally on Friday and Saturday Homestead Manor’s event team will show you how to pull off an elegant wedding in a rustic setting. This wedding trend is what’s happening right now and there’s no better place to do it than in our beautiful Tennessee.
Of course there will be food trucks and music and a plethora of your favorite vendors. Here’s what I can also tell you. After getting inspiration from the demonstrations you’ll be able to search for garden vintage treasures (because they’ve said they’re bringing them) from the likes of Lynda Hughes, The Feathered Nest, “savvycityfarmer”, J. Hill Design, and Hites Heirloom Pumpkins (no pumpkins, but they’re bringing topiaries).
It’s going to be a great weekend. You can find out all about the City Farmhouse Pop-up Fair on their website: ticket prices – lodging – maps – food – music and demonstrations.
June 19-20 in Leiper’s Fork on the lush grounds of the Buddy Killen Estate.
Wear comfortable shoes, cool clothes and a hat! We’re praying for no rain! Oh yes…and sunblock.
Good times. I’ll see y’all there. Stay tuned because next week I have tickets to give away!
Let’s Hang Out Here Too!
