A Day in the Country returns to Northeast Ohio at the Portage County Randolph Fairgrounds (4215 Fairground Rd, Atwater, OH 44201) for the 4th year in a row on October 7th – 8th, 2017.
Aunt and niece duo, Deb Willhite of Lakes Girl Vintage and Bessie Zinz of Besserina have conceptualized A Day in the Country: a market featuring local artists, craftsmen, and business owners, showcasing handmade and vintage goods. The duo’s concept of bringing 50+ vendors into one authentic space has grown over the past four years and the 2017 event will be back, bigger, and better than ever.
Willhite & Zinz are excited to be back at the fairgrounds, and are eager to host vendors from previous years, as well as debuting new shops at the event.
Local art, rare handmades, antiques & vintage, specialty foods, repurposed goods, and local small businesses all have a place at A Day in the Country. Guests throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond will not regret the trip.
In addition, Willhite and Zinz are huge proponents of giving back to the local community. This year they have selected a local child, Paitynn Tipton to receive a portion of the proceeds from this event. Paitynn was born with Trisonomy 18 and was not expected to live more than a week. She is now 5 years old and has developed cancer in both kidneys. In addition, they will also be holding a raffle with 100% of the proceeds going to Portage Country 4-H Life Skills Committee.
The amazing duo encourages attendees to “bring your friends to shop and be inspired!” Admission is $5 and the event will be open from 10 am – 5 pm on Saturday, 10 am – 3 pm on Sunday.
