They’ll have their jobs cut out for them, though: This year’s event will have more than 100 vendors, up from last year.
The second annual version opens Saturday at 9 a.m. for early bird ticket holders and 11 a.m. to everybody else. It closes at 4 p.m. and then opens again Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The market is a rain-or-shine event. The weather looks great Saturday, but rain is forecast for Sunday.
Wares will include antiques and collectibles; furniture and home décor; upcycled and architectural salvage pieces; high-quality crafts and handmade items; vintage clothing and jewelry; small batch and artisanal gourmet packaged goods; original art in a variety of media; and garden items.
General admission tickets are $22 for adults; $20 for students and seniors; $8 for ages 2-11.
An Artisan Market early bird VIP admission allows ticket holders in from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and includes reserved parking. It’s $50 per person; $25 for members and includes special parking, options for a lecture on the “Jacqueline Kennedy and H. F. du Pont: From Winterthur to the White House” exhibit and a house tour that will follow Jackie’s path through the house on her visit.
Tickets may be purchased online at winterthur.org, by calling 800-448-3883, or on-site on the day of the event.
