Vintage Market III is this weekend

    The third Vintage Market (VM) is just around the corner.  The VM is different in nearly all respects this year.  It quickly outgrew its location of the past two years. The new location will be the Red Shed in Doolittle, MO on 169 Truman.  As per request by patrons, the sale will be expanded to two days this year, trying to offer flexibility to shoppers.  On Friday, April 5, hours will be from noon to 8 p.m. On Saturday, April 6, shoppers will have from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to peruse the wide selection of quality furniture, antiques, collectibles, artwork, upscale accessories, jewelry and plants.  The event is sponsored by the Southern Cherokee Cultural Center (SCCC).
