Hull’s annual Summerfest celebration will include new shopping opportunities.
A Rustic Railroad Market featuring vintage, repurposed and handmade items for sale has been added to the weekend.
Nicole Rozeboom, owner of B Fierce Boutique in Hull, is organizing the event.
“There are a lot of local people making and selling some really unique rustic and repurposed items,” she explained. “When the Summerfest committee decided not to have the traditional vendor fair this year, we decided to offer a craft/vendor fair limited to vintage.
“I like rustic and repurposed stuff and it’s very popular now. We think the market will be received well.”
The Rustic Railroad Market will be Saturday, July 14, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and will be located in the space north of the B Fierce Boutique building on Highway 18.
“It’s where the mini-golf course used to be,” said Rozeboom. “And the railroad used to run along the property, so that’s where the railroad market name came from.”
She’s expecting 10 local vendors with a variety of items for sale.
“These vendors take up a lot of space, so our area will be pretty full,” she added.
Rozeboom has received plenty of positive feedback on the event.
“We’ll have a crowd of people in town that day, so I’m hoping that a lot of them will stop and check out the market. And, I’m hoping for a beautiful day.”
