Another first for Historic Biltmore Village

On September 6, 2014, Historic Biltmore Village will be hosting its first annual Vintage
Fall Festival featuring the Bee Happy Market.

The event will be held in the Wells Fargo parking lot at 11 Kitchen Place from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM.  Starting at 2:00, all of the restaurants with outdoor seating will be featuring live entertainment.  Participating retail merchants will host special sales and a look at the newest fall fashions throughout the Village. 

Historic Biltmore Village is excited to be working with Emily Growden, owner of Bee Happy Wares & Whimsies, to host a premier open air artisan, vintage, antique, and collectibles market. It’s no secret that these types of markets are being held all over the country and are in very high demand, gaining momentum with the help of shows like HGTV’s Junk Gypsies.  “Whether it be a result of enduring a recessed economy or simply a love for all things nostalgic, we have embraced the continuing demand of giving old pieces new life,” explains Emily.  “There are so many local artisans with a passion and gift for refurbishing and repurposing, and yet no specific venue in Asheville to come together in one event of this nature.”

Historic Biltmore Village plans to grow this vintage market from year to year, likely becoming a juried event.  If you would like any additional information regarding the Bee Happy Market, please contact Emily Growden at emily@beehappywares.com.
