Curated Second-Hand Market joins farmers’ market

Event hosted by The Reach Gallery Museum takes place July 20 in Abbotsford

The popular annual Cultural Exchange: A Curated Second-Hand Market is on the move.

This year the market joins the Abbotsford Farm and Country Market in Historic Downtown Abbotsford on Saturday, July 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The market has been hosted the previous two years near The Reach Gallery Museum, but The Reach’s executive director, Laura Schneider, said they welcomed the opportunity to change it up a bit.

“We discovered that the public – some of them collectors – love to shop at an upscale market of gently used goods and collectibles that includes the unusual, and we wanted to continue the tradition,” she said.

Schneider describes the market as a “fun vintage boutique experience” that includes everything from unusual art pieces to cool shoes and collectibles.

The market tables will brim with donated art, books, games, puzzles, jewelry, accessories, tops, home décor items, collectibles, and, as always, some unexpected treasures.

The market will also feature a musical performance by singer/songwriter Ranj Singh.

Money raised will help to develop arts and heritage learning programs for more children and seniors to enjoy in Abbotsford.

The Abbotsford Friends of the Library have also partnered for the event, which is supported by RBC Days of Service with a volunteer team from the Clearbrook branch.

The event takes place on Montrose Avenue. All second-hand purchases are cash only.
