Carlinville Market Days
5 11 17
A warm sun shone down on booths brimming with everything from china plates to vintage toy trucks during the Carlinville Market Days event that took place on Saturday, May 6 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the square.
Organizer of the occasion Perry Brown explained that this was the second one to take place this year so far. However, compared to the previous Carlinville Market Days affair that took place on Saturday, April 1, the weather was more agreeable in addition to the square having full vendor capacity.
Brown noted by 11 a.m., the Carlinville square was loaded with people, and traffic was slowed. “I’m already putting out sign ups for June in terms of vendors,” he said. “There was a great turn out for both those running the booths and interested shoppers. Everyone seemed happy.”
Jaynie Doerr and Cheryl Holst were among the merchants participating. They mentioned that they were selling items made of repurposed horseshoes and barn wood. “This was our first time attending, and we were glad the weather cooperated. We will definitely be back,” Doerr said.
