We love to hold events at Pomegranate, and some of them are downright legendary. On the first Saturday of December, you don’t want to miss our annual Holiday Soirée (and day of giving back) from 10-7. All day, we serve treats and libations, give away door prizes, and offer specials for the day. The shop is all dressed up and magical for the holidays: you’ll find everything you desire, from special ornaments and décor, to perfect gifts, great ideas and pieces for entertaining, and every hostess gift imaginable. Then, at 4pm, it really gets serious with cocktails and goodies from our infamous ice bar outside. Robert will make a Pometini for you (or pour some bubbles, if you prefer) while you enjoy a little nosh and stand by the fire… or wander around and shop. Best of all, we always donate 10% of the entire day’s sales to a local non-profit (a different one each year), so it’s always a great day – our busiest of the year. Many of our dear customers have told us that this party really kicks off the season for them; we pull out all the stops to make it grand!
Our 2020 Soirée is scheduled for Saturday, December 5, from 10-7 (cocktails served from 4-7). This year we’re also adding Friday, December 4 to the party – no cocktails that day, but we’ll still be serving treats and libations, giving away prizes and gift-with-purchase, and most importantly, counting that day too as a giving back day, with ten percent of sales going to our chosen non-profit. If you’d like to avoid the crowds, this might be your day: a little bit quieter and more manageable.
Soirée update: depending on the state of the world this coming December, we likely will have to alter our 2020 party plans to maintain safety measures; we’ll post announcements later in the season to let you know how we might reimagine our event.
In summer, we host our Vintage Flea Markets – our front and back gardens fill up with wonderful, hand-picked vendors who come from all over the state (and beyond) to set up on our grounds. It’s all good vintage finds and upcycled wares, from shabby chic to antique… rustic, primitive, mid-century, industrial and finer antiques (you never know what you’re going to find). Bring a big shopping bag or basket (and maybe your truck), put on your shopping shoes, and stuff some cash and a credit card in your pocket. There’s plenty of parking in the back lot at Macy’s.
2020 Vintage Flea Markets are scheduled for the following Saturdays: June 6, July 18, and August 29, from 10-4 – in the gardens at Pomegranate (shop open 10-5). Please note that because of the corona virus pandemic, our 2020 Vintage Flea Markets will likely be cancelled or rescheduled if possible. Stay tuned for news. [June 6 and July 18 markets are cancelled.]
Interested in being a vendor? We have dealers who sign up for every show, and folks who just want to shed some of those goodies from grandma’s attic in a one-time shot. You don’t need experience, but we do ask that you bring good vintage items at good prices. For info and an application, please drop us a note at Jantiques@bendcable.com.
Keep an eye open for other events we may announce from time to time, from fun, outdoor seminars, to trunk shows. Our historic site is a great place to host your own class or event: we’ve had painting classes join us, and even a wedding or two! Give us a call at 541.383.3713 for info. And be sure to sign up for our newsletters (sign-up form on the right side of this page) so you don’t miss a thing.
Here’s just a small sampling of some pictures from past Vintage Flea Markets. Keep in mind that all of these items are long gone; you’ll just have to attend our markets to see what new treasures pop up!
