The Ivy Market Returns: Get Your Shopping List ReadyPosted: September 27, 2011
The Fall 2012 edition of The Ivy Market opens today (Tuesday, September 27) with a Girls’ Night Out from 5-9 p.m. and runs through tomorrow from 9-4 at the University of Richmond‘s beautiful Jepson Alumni Center. I am such an Avad Fan of this upscale shopping bazaar that only happens twice a year. Started by my friend, Andrea Whitaker, proceeds from this event benefit the The Tad DuPriest Foundation and ASK, two local organizations helping to improve the lives of children battling cancer.
You may recall from this post that the Spring 2012 edition of The Ivy Market featured blogceleb stylist, Eddie Ross, and his partner, Jaithan. I was absolutely delighted to meet these truly gentlemen and treasure these 1940s lace-edged milk glass dishes
that I purchased from their pop-up shop at The Ivy Market. I couldn’t have been more tickled when Eddie linked to his Facebook page my Flower Camp Frolic post which featured floral arrangements that I created in these dishes and then friended me. His kind gestures have been one of the highlights of writing this blog.
I haven’t heard of any celebrities attending this week’s Ivy Market, but you can expect to find a carefully chosen array of amazing vendors from the Richmond area, as well as up and down the East Coast. Lori Daniel Rowland will, as always, be there
With lots of fall birthdays to celebrate and Christmas less than three months away, I am pulling my shopping list together. I can’t wait to put a dent in it (and maybe find a little treat for myself as well). Hope I’ll bump into you at The Ivy Market!
