Sassafras Farm Flea Market


Along with hayrides, spinning, quilting, felting, iron skillet coffee bean roasting, and other demonstrations and activities, not to mention FOOD, FOOD, FOOD, (and, possibly, pony rides on Shortcake), I’m hosting my first ever Sassafras Farm Flea Market at the Party on the Farm.

You are invited to sell your wares at the Party on Farm in our very own flea market, open to CITR readers and party attendees only. The wares are limited to handmade or homegrown items. There is no fee.

Even if you don’t have anything to sell, be ready to browse the tables of fellow CITR friends! Purchases will be cash or personal check. No debit/credit cards can be accepted/processed. You must take responsibility for your own items and money—-we can’t promise to watch it for you.

I’ll be selling my homemade soaps (Wild Mint & Honey, Oatmeal, Sassafras Tea, and Lemon & Lavender) along with my preserving.

Drunken Cherries, Raspberry Sundae Preserves, Apple Maple Jam, Orange Slices (spirited!), and pints and PINTS of my Whiskey-Raisin Apple Butter.

For the second year running, we will also have a swap at the party. One table will be set aside for swap items. To participate in the swap, bring your “extra” homemade crafted or canned goodies to exchange with your CITR friends. You must take responsibility for your own items—-we can’t promise to watch it for you.

Participating in the swap OR the flea market is OPTIONAL, of course. If interested in the swap, bring your goodies and check in at the swap table when you arrive. If participating in the flea market, bring your wares and set up shop in the flea market area. (There will be signs directing to the swap and to the flea market.) There will be limited table space available for the flea market due to table use for the swap and the food. If you want to be sure to have table space, bring your own table. I will do my best to set up as much market tablespace as possible with whatever I can conjure up that works, but I would appreciate any and all table(s) you may bring with you.

Don’t forget to bring cash or checks so you can have fun shopping! The flea market will be somewhat like an impromptu craft fair/farmers market and I hope it will be a lot of fun.

We do need to know you’re coming, so don’t forget to register (free!) to attend the Party on the Farm.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
