Random Sides // Come Visit Spring Fling in the City!


Are you into crafts, vintage housewares/decor/clothing, handmade and local items, or anything remotely hipster-esque? If so, may I suggest that you check out Spring Fling in the City?

From the Spring Fling in the City Facebook page, here’s what it’s all about!

Spring Fling in the City is all about love of vintage, love of handmade and love of local. It’s an event inspired by times past, where old is new again and everything has potential.

All the fun will happen on North 14th Street between St. Louis Avenue and Warren Street in the beautifully restored Crown Square.

The Fling features local vendors selling vintage clothing, vintage accessories and vintage home decor, as well as vintage-inspired handmade items.

We’ll also have live music from local bands Ruth Acuff and Letter to Memphis (thanks to our sponsor TSV Sound & Vision!); food from local eateries La Mancha Coffeehouse, Crown Candy Kitchen, Completely Sauced and Vincent Van Doughnut; and 4 Hands Brewing Company will be setting up a beer tent to keep the good vibes flowing (wink)! 

The Old North Saint Louis Restoration Group will also be holding its annual home and community tour that day, and it’s a great chance to stretch outside 14th Street and see the beautiful history of its surrounding neighborhood! To get tickets ahead of time, visit the Facebook event page!

All in all it’ll be a great day to find some unique treasures (and that last-minute Mother’s Day present!), eat some good food; explore the local neighborhood; and celebrate the spirit of revitalization!

Oh yeah. I might have forgotten one minor [!] detail: I AM GOING TO BE A VENDOR AT THIS EVENT!! Eeeeek. I will be selling tasty baked goods in my very own 10×10′ booth. My menu is still being finalized, but I do know for a fact that I’ll be selling vegan cupcakes and homemade [duh] animal crackers! I will share more details on this soon, but as you can tell, I am pretty pumped. 

All of that being said, if you’re going to be in the St. Louis area on May 9th, then please come check out the Spring Fling festival! It’s a great way to support our local community, plus many of the awesome local artists and small businesses. And of course, you’ll need to try my baked goods. That’s a given. 😉

Mark your calendars now, as it’s only a month away! If you have any questions on the event, please let me know.
