KalamazooKitty Mini Market

With one successful KalamazooKitty Mini Market under our belts, I am now able to blog about it and clear up any confusion.  The Mini Market, previously called The Marketplace, has undergone some changes.  Aside from the name change, we also changed the location. 
Now housed at the KalamazooKitty West Main parking lot, it offers shoppers a day of hunting inside and out!  The store was open during regular business hours, 10-6, as well as the other KalamazooKitty location on Portage Rd.  Many eager shoppers spent the day browsing through the outdoor booths, grabbing a bite to eat from the food vendors, and then taking a spin through both locations!  Now that made for one fun day of shopping!  The last change made to the Marketplace was the most significant of all the changes...the price of admission.  Now a FREE event, shoppers can spend their money on goodies and treasures, rather than an entrance fee (who doesn't love FREE?!).  WOOHOO!! 
The second Mini Market is right around the corner...July 29, 2017!  Mark your calendar and remember that the outdoor booths open at 9am for all you early birds out there looking for the best worm!  We are connected to the Walmart parking lot for easy access to the outdoor booths.  Walmart has graciously allowed us the use of their lot for these Mini Markets, so please thank them by shopping at Walmart before you head home for the day.  Park at Walmart,
then walk toward the back of Walmart until you see our entrance. It is fast and easy, and eliminates the need to walk along West Main and 9th Street!  So now you know what has changed, and where to park, the next question is what to expect.  With markets popping up all over the place, most savvy shoppers know what to expect and what exactly they are looking for! 
So to keep up with the trends, Pinterest (of course) and my savvy shoppers, we are bringing you a huge variety of everything for your home AND your body.  Not only will the lucky pickers and hunters find a rare treasure or antique, they will also find painted furniture, rustic and vintage decor, signs and plants.  Not shopping for your home? 
We will also showcase local t-shirts,
boho style clothing, jewelry, soap, hats, bags and more!  All that great shopping is making me hungry just thinking about it!  You will surely be tempted with tasty treats and snacks, as well as incredible sandwiches and many more food truck goodies galore!  In the event of rain, the show will go on!  That is where the beauty of having the store onsite is ideal.  Step out of the rain, or sun, into a shop full of unique treasures and furniture just waiting for the right person to take them home!  KalamazooKitty offers a huge variety of items for the home that fit any style of living.  You will be sure to find the perfect piece for your home, perfect shirt for you or perfect gift for that wedding or party coming up this summer.  Enough said...see you on July 29th @ 9am sharp !

This is from you!
