North Carolina Maritime Museum At Southport Seeks Vendors For Final 2nd Saturday Event Of The Summer

July 16, 2013 - Southport, NC - The North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport is calling on artists to exhibit and sell art work and goods this summer as part of the Department of Cultural Resources’ final 2nd Saturdays event of 2013, scheduled for August 10 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

“Artists of all types are welcome and there is absolutely no fee to participate,” says Museum Assistant Sharon Venis. “Vendors in the past have sold jewelry, home decorations, candles, soap and more.”

Farmers with products such as honey, soy candles, cheeses, or herbs are also encouraged to participate. Vendors are required to supply their own table and tent and space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

2nd Saturdays combine the unique power of the arts and heritage with lots of hands-on fun each second Saturday during the peak summertime vacation months. For families on a budget looking for exciting things to do, for a “staycation” or a local weekend getaway, 2nd Saturdays programs from the Department of Cultural Resources are the answer.

The Museum’s theme for 2nd Saturdays on August 10 is “Blockade Running in the Lower Cape Fear.” Learn about blockaders, blockade runners, pilots and prices.
