Held every spring and fall in historic downtown Millersburg, Antiques in the Alley returns for its 10th year on Saturday, May 10. Guests at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast are invited to browse this outdoor shopping event as part of their visit to Ohio's Amish country.
Set in the alleys and main streets of downtown Millersburg, Antiques in the Alley will host more than 50 antique vendors and their wares this Saturday, from 9am to 5pm, rain or shine. This event, which is akin to a festival, is opportunely right before Mother's Day, giving visitors a chance to let Mom shop for herself, or a great place to pick something up for her.
Antiques in the Alley has served as a great transition from Spring to the beginning of tourism season in Amish Country. In the past, the event was focused more on antique vendors only, but has since expanded to businesses and individuals from all over Ohio bringing a variety of merchandise to the table, such as refurbished furniture, glassware, metal artwork, flowers, folk art, and much more.
Two food vendors will also be present in the alleys alongside other local businesses and restaurants, many of which will be offering sidewalk sales and discounts. For continued entertainment after the vendors are closed, Historic Downtown Millersburg will be hosting its second Saturday Movie on Courthouse Square, showing "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" on a large screen on the lawn.
Fore more information about Antiques in the Alley, visitors can go to Historic Downtown Millersburg or Starlight Antiques.
