JULY 11: SOUTH MAIN VINTAGE MARKET IN BERNICE GARDEN
As always, if you're into the vintage scene, make time to drop by Bernice Garden for the South Main Vintage Market between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. While you're at it—and since it'll be hot—pop in The Green Corner Store for the shop's sixth birthday celebration.
