The Marshalltown Center is putting on their largest shopping event of the season this weekend. And organizer Ken Huge says there is something for everyone. "Some of the ne vendors we have coming from around the area include Funky Junk," which according to Huge is, " recycled, repurposed, gift-able items. And they're down from the Pella area."
Huge also says that if you are more into bows and bright and girly items, you will want to check out Izzy's Tu-tu's. But, if local businesses are more your speed, Huge says, "Rhubarb and Lace, Willard's, and In-Stitches from down on Main Street," will also have an area set up to sell their goods.
This is the second year for the event and there are almost double the amount of vendor this year that will take over the mall. According to Huge, "there will over 50 vendors who will be set up," and he adds," they will be set up with all kinds of great merchandise for you."
Huge also reminds us that there is a holiday just creeping up around the corner. "I hate to talk at this stage," Huge says,"but early maybe Christmas shopping. This would be a great opportunity for that."
There will be plenty of food on hand from different vendors as well. However, as a spotlight, Pork sandwiches will also be sold to raise money for the United Way campaign that is currently taking place as well. Again, the event will be this Saturday, October 12th, going from nine until five at the Marshalltown Center.
