Clover Market

The Clover Market in Ardmore, PA.  First visit there and may I be so bold as to suggest it might be my new favorite?  Loved this market.  LOVED it.

This three-year old market, nestled in the charming town of Ardmore, Pennsylvania, is held one Sunday per month, April through November, and is a beautifully curated collection of handmade and vintage items.   It's a juried market, so there are NO cheezy Barbie toilet paper covers or dried flower decor - only gorgeous handmade or curated vintage things: handsewn linen pillows, blue-dotted mugs with handles that fit perfectly in your hand, letterpress goods, silver jewelry cut fine as lace.  There are vintage necklaces and dresses by the bushel, and colorful mirrors whose frames are made from vintage tin.

A little food truck is parked near the stalls, giving out samples of small batch, natural sodas to passersby.  Inside a nearby building are some other food vendors with wares like oatcakes, gluten free macaroons and grilled cheeses made to order.

I was completely impressed by the staging of the booths - each prettier than the next.  What a fun wander I had!   I came home with a print for my sister, an eco-friendly, reusable Space Invaders sandwich pouch for my little guy's lunchbox, and a reversible, (aqua and orange!) enameled necklace for me.

The remaining dates for the 2012 market are:


10 am - 5 pm rain or shine

12 E. Lancaster Ave.
Ardmore, PA 19003

p.s. Don't miss Milkboy Coffee in downtown Ardmore for live music and a damn fine latte.
