The show was great! We had a great show and it seemed that all had a good time in spite of the weather. We were so happy to be a part of Urban Market and really hope to be a part of it again! A big thank you to both you and Maura for all the great organization!  Diane Poole
P.S. I love the cabinet I bought from you!

I'm just sick that I was unable to attend (because of the rain). I hope
the event was successful and look forward to the next one.

Thank you so much...
I was there and had a BLAST!!

I went to the urban market last Sunday on my way to the airport- I LOVED IT, in spite of the rain - i will definitely be at the next one and have signed up for email. my question is ' WHERE DO I GET THE RECIPE FOR THE PIMENTO CHEESE !
It was the absolute best

 I LOVED this year's rainy show, by the way. The serious shoppers (like me) came
 prepared with rain boots and coats, ready for all that downpour. We LOVED it!!!

I went, I loved it, I got alot of great things. Christmas
 shopping in October, rain or shine, 
I hope all the vendors did well! When is the next one?

Maura Cannon recently collected a truck full of "fresh goods"...
wandering from Memphis,  to Springfield, Ohio, Indiana and stops in-between. The Homestretch is brimming with new merchandise. 

 Farm tables,  great outdoor objects, metal tables, chairs, benches, bee skips and
wonderful oddities...and more chairs... hutches, folk art, road signs, bits of
whimsy, and did we mention chairs?

Don't think The Homestretch is just antiques ... you
will find jewelry by local artisians, hand picked silver baubles from Mexico,
soy candles that smell like tomato leaves...& unusual oddities that change daily.

Now showing new work from Pat Campbell, and recent photographs and mixed media by
Mary Jane Hardin.  You can always find or have made the perfect pillow by the
Empress of The Eye for The Homestretch.

Maura has the info on a great refinisher, the best spot to find ironstone in town,
 an upholsterer who can get your sofa done in your on Marburger, great smalls
in St. Louis, a quiet b&b in the Hill Country...
she is a favorite source for designers and novices alike.

Stop in today...Ebenezer is always glad to see you
