Vintage Fair a ‘feast’

Each year Pat Pownall invites vendors of vintage portable property to come to Rock Creek Market for the weekend.

Rock Creek saw the 4th annual Vintage Fair come to town last weekend, a weekend that was a feast for all who enjoy vintage and antique treasure hunting.

Eight vintage vendors joined the regular Rock Creek Market merchants on the grounds of Rags, Relics and Rutabagas last Saturday and Sunday.

Organizer Pat Pownall said both she and the vendors were extremely happy with the weekend.

“What I love about the Vintage Fair is listening to the vendors set up in the morning,” Pownall said with a wide smile. “They truly love each other. It’s the social part I enjoy—the reconnecting.”

The Midway Volunteer Fire Department offered a food concession on both days, starting by flipping pancakes in the morning and burgers for lunch.
