Market at the Lighthouse, June 14th 2015
The Lighthouse Station on Tybee Island, Georgia is one of our most popular attractions. Even if you have already been there, we encourage you to return to the site on Sunday, June 14, 2015. On that day, numerous artists, crafters, antique dealers, jewelry makers, and other vendors will be there from 10 am to 4 pm. There will also be locally produced food items like honey, baked goods, spreads, sauces, spices, and possibly fresh produce. There are usually several people who sell vintage and estate jewelry, purses, and other accessories. One of the newer vendors sells a huge variety of fossils. Father’s Day will be on the following Sunday, so this will be the perfect place to find a unique and special gift.
The owners of 7th Heaven Spices plan to be at the market, so you can pick up a variety of spices, an especially great present for your dad or grandpa, if he enjoys cooking or grilling. They have been in business for fifteen years and provide products to many of the area restaurants.
Sue Nichols is an extraordinary artist, as you can see from these pictures! Her artwork is at a prestigious gallery in Savannah, but on Sunday, you can meet her and see her art without leaving Tybee. Her husband is a licensed beekeeper, so he will have a variety of “Reader’s Bees” honey at the market. His honey and honeycombs are served in Savannah’s best restaurants, including The Grey, Cha-Bella, and Hugh Acheson’s Florence.
Tybee native, Bobbie Poplin, and her husband create interesting mosaic art. Their hand-crafted pieces grace many homes in the area and you will have the opportunity to take home some true Tybee art!
There will also be vendors with fabulous pottery, hand-crocheted and knitted items, gifts for children, soap and other bath products, and more intriguing items! The market helps support the preservation of the historic Tybee Lighthouse and the surrounding buildings. It’s always the place to “see and be seen” and you will have a great time, even if you don’t find something you can’t live without. Come meet the local artists and experience an event that adds to the charm of our little island in the lowcountry.
