Summer is in full swing and if your kids aren’t in camp, or on a swim team, or visiting Grandma in Ohio, then you might be looking for something fun to occupy their time. One of the things my kids and I always enjoyed was walking around town looking for Waldo. We would take all month to find him in the stores and local businesses.
It was a great way to get kids out of the house and I got to do a little bit of shopping, exploring, and eating more than PB&Js at home. This event was fun for me as a mom and continues to be fun for me as an adult. I love when the little people come in searching in earnest for Waldo, so naturally, Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post are excited to participate in the hunt again this July.
Register today and we will reserve a Corkcicle water bottle so you can stay hydrated as you walk Makers Mile. With your water bottle you’ll receive a limited-edition vinyl sticker, made especially for decorating your water bottle, and participate in “make-and-take” craft stations, where you can practice your crafty skills and take home your new handmade item!
Five of your favorite boutiques will be hosting young and old alike during this craftastic (yes, I said it!) event where each person will experience everything from paper and paint to fabric, yarn, and more. And, new for this event are treats from our restaurant partners Meggrolls and Nice Cream. Each will be offering specials to our Makers Mile Mini-ers. Here’s what you can look forward to:
This really is an event for any age, so if you’re young in age or just young at heart, register today to join the fun. We look forward to seeing you and your mini Maker next weekend!
Red Barn Mercantile opened its doors in September 2007 with a single vision in mind: providing old and new to offer our customers signature whole-room designs at great prices.
We’re more than a furniture boutique and provide more personalized service than a big box retailer. We work hard to bring you the highest quality furniture and gifts, the most unique conversation starters, wall hangings and accent pieces, whether they come from off-the-beaten-track flea markets, or the latest designers.
