BRANDON — Donna O'Hare, who owns her own gift basket business, wanted to spark more people in the area to shop local.
So O'Hare, who uses a portion of Cindy Barsa's Perfect Pieces Boutique warehouse at 525 S Kings Ave. for Donna's Gift Creations, helped create a multivendor event in April that proved successful.
Now O'Hare and Barsa are at it again, this time drawing more than 30 vendors and artisans for an indoor-outdoor market from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Perfect Pieces, which specializes in fresh interior design concepts.
Items up for sale will include handcrafted jewelry, soaps, vintage items and furniture.
The site itself may be as big of an attraction as the crafts. Perfect Pieces sits in a 1925 home that's billed as one of the oldest in the Brandon area. The bungalow previously served as a church, restaurant and parsonage.
"Perfect Pieces Boutique is located on over 2 acres and is a great location to hold a community event," O'Hare said. "Behind the boutique is a 4,000-square-foot warehouse where we have consignment furniture."
The event also will feature food trucks: Frenchies Touch, specializing in gourmet crepes; Bonita's Apple Bombs, serving gourmet candied and caramel apples, chocolate strawberries and pretzels; and Kyle's Beef Jerky.
Music will be provided by DJ Knockout.
O'Hare noted the site includes wooded acres and plenty of parking.
