"All About Mom" market makes return

Sharon Cornallies and Evelyn MacDonald were part of the “All About Mom” Market.

A recent vendor’s market was centered around Mother’s Day and helping a pair of local charities.


The third annual “All About Mom” Mother’s Day Market was at the AMA Sportsmen’s Club. In addition to it being a place for vendors to gather, it was an event that assisted a pair of causes.


Organized by Mary Lippert and Sweet Moments Cookie Co., proceeds from the “All About Mom” Mother’s Day Market benefit youth programming at the AMA Sportsmen’s Club and Kids Curing Cancer (KCC).


There were over 40 vendors at the club for the market last Saturday, said Lippert, with room for 35 vendors indoors with others setting up shop outside the building.


“This is our sixth event,” she said, noting there is also a fall event entitled the “Glitter and Gold” market in the fall. “It’s for a good cause.”


Lippert said they like having events and just to see people get out and congregate. 


“We like to see the camaraderie of people coming out in a small town.”


Marissa Bocchini helped her grandmother and her table, but she envisions getting a table of her own at future markets. Bocchini said she makes costumes and if she is successful in selling some of them, she would use proceeds to get a booth for herself at future markets.


“I’m just helping my grandmother today,” the Windsor resident said.


Jenny Mano came in from Dresden for the market, noting Lippert is her daughter-in-law. 


“She does human treats. I do dog treats,” she said at her “Me & My Lewis” table that was named after her own dog. 


Mano said she tries to attend at least two shows per month, though she regularly does shows in the Dresden area. She comes to this area when Lippert or someone else she knows puts on a market.


Sharon Cornallies and Evelyn MacDonald said they haven’t been part of a vendor show at the AMA Sportsmen’s Club since 2010. They were glad to be back at the show organized by Lippert.


“I think it’s good,” MacDonald said. “There seems to be a lot of activity.”


MacDonald added they try and get out to at least two shows per month in the area with their greeting card business.


“It’s friendly. It’s always a great experience,” said MacDonald.

 

MacDonald added that it can be difficult to sell greeting cards at shows because of the space they need. People also have to be in the need for cards, she added.
