What can you look forward to this year?
The Largest Festival To Date!
With over 40 vendors, this year’s knot too shabby BAZAAR booked up months in advance. New to the 2018 event is a small variety of handmade baby and toddler items from clothes and burp cloths to sustainable cloth diapers and hair accessories. Handmade t-shirts, up-cycled flannel and re-purposed vintage outerware are among items being sold by some of our other newest vendors. Plus, so many of our recognizable favorites from Emmy and Avery’s beautiful handmade signs, Chic Boutique’s wood wall art, Redeeming Eden’s to die for succulent arrangements…just to name a few. Large varieties of handmade jewelry, gorgeous pottery, and mosaics will be there. And of course, furniture. A lot of hand-painted furniture sporting only the best paint in the world. You’ll want to get a good look at who we will be welcoming this year, so be sure to follow the Facebook Event for vendor introductions along with our Instagram page!

Furniture Makeover Competition
Last year we introduced the Furniture Makeover Competition to the #knottooshabbyBAZAAR and with its huge success, we’re continuing this newest tradition. The best part, is you don’t have to be a vendor at the event to participate! So, if you are a painter using the best paint (Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint or Annie Sloan Paint) and want to showcase some of your work, now is your chance! It doesn’t have to be an over the top paint finish. Sometimes, the simplest finishes are the prettiest. Either way, it’s not up to us! It’s up to the voters. And, with nothing to lose, you could win a $100 knot too shabby Gift Certificate if you win! Just bring your finished piece to the knot too shabby BAZAAR by 9:00 am along with an 8 x 10 “before” picture. We’ll get you all set up and then you can call in all of your favors and have your friends come down to vote.
Look for some great deals from our participating vendors, many of which are offering special deals for first-time customers! Participating vendors are All Over the Map, Lavendar Apothecary, Spence Paints, Simply Roses Clothing, Gano Studio, Harper Mill Boutique, and more! For vendor coupons, sign-up for our e-newsletter and follow the Facebook event so you don’t miss out on a discount!
No vintage market is complete with out yummy food. And, this year Pinch of Flavor Food Truck will be serving up super delicious Mexican fare including seafood & vegan choices.
Plus, Palermo Bakery is back serving up their sweet treats from cookies to cheesecake. And, if you don’t like what they have to offer, the Glendora Village is loaded with some great restaurants!
