It’s the FIRST Day of Summer – Get Out There!
This Saturday, June 23 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. the Healy House/Dexter Cabin and Mining Hall of Fame will host the award-winning Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market. The top of Leadville’s “Capitol Hill” will be a sea of pop-up tents as artists, crafters, and antique/vintage collectors set up shop and meet their customers. The market is free and open to the public.
It’s a rare and wonderful shopping destination where customers can engage with and buy straight from local makers, creators and collectors. You’re sure to stumble upon some pretty awesome, lucky finds!
The market’s Leadville stop is part of the Hit the Road with the Horseshoe tour that will present art markets at historic sites across the state. From 10 a.m. to 5.p.m. on the grounds of The Healy House and meandering back behind the Mining Hall of Fame, visitors will be able to shop and meet with approximately 40 Colorado vendors selling handmade art, accessories, clothing, jewelry, bath and body products, vintage clothing and furniture, vintage vinyl records, recycled, repurposed items and more. And yes, there will be local Leadville vendors too!
The Hit the Road with the Horseshoe markets are a partnership between the Horseshoe Market and History Colorado (the Colorado State Historical Society) and are designed to celebrate the richness of Colorado’s past while also showcasing some of the most talented, creative vendors and collectors that the state has to offer.
Through this dynamic partnership, History Colorado and the Horseshoe Market hope to take people on an adventure to fascinating historic sites – like Leadville! – where unique art, design, handmade, and vintage “lucky finds” await. At each Hit the Road site, visitors will also be able to take a step back in time and learn more about the people and events that have shaped Colorado’s history.
Maureen Scanlon, Director of the Healy House is thrilled that the Horseshoe made Leadville its first stop this summer. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to host the Horseshoe Market. It gives us a great opportunity to welcome new, creative people to our community and introduce them to some of the incredible history that exists here” said Scanlon.
