 2016-03-30 AVO RURAL RUST  4x2 for Voice

Rural Route Rust Vintage and Handmade Market set for April 16th.  “Don't throw the past away, you might need it some rainy day.” This classic song lyric from the musical All That Jazz is true both in life and in home decorating, as shoppers at the Rural Route Rust Vintage and Handmade Market on April 16th will discover.

Using vintage pieces or reimagined antiques in the home or garden continues to be one of today’s hottest decorating trends. Examples include organizing with antique wooden boxes, making a statement light fixture out of a piece of farm equipment, or simply planting flowers in a rusty wheelbarrow. Decorating magazines, Pinterest, and television shows like Fixer Upper and Flea Market Flip demonstrate this trend.

Bloom Where You’re Planted Farm, 911-108th Street, rural Avoca, NE is the home of the Rural Route Rust Vintage and Handmade Market. Fifty-five vendors from five states will showcase vintage goods and furniture, antiques, primitives, art and handcrafted gifts. The historic farm, which hosts a pumpkin patch festival each fall, features a two-story barn filled with vintage goods, farm animals, kids’ play areas, and food tents and trucks to service hungry shoppers. “This fourth-annual market will be our biggest and best yet,” said owner Teresa Lorensen. “These top-notch vendors have been collecting and creating all year and are ready to send you home with fun and unique decorating pieces, Mother’s Day gifts, and even plants and fresh flowers!”

Show hours on April 16 are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is $3.00 for ages 12+. Parking is free.
