LegacyMarket

Legacy Market promises something for everyone

Ready for the Tour of Homes and Marketplace?

Volunteers prepare for the upcoming Marketplace, as homeowners on the Tour of Homes prepare to welcome crowds into their homes. The money raised will allow the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild through the Legacy of Caring to support charities whose primary focus is the well-being of women and children.

On May 18-19, the Marketplace will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Dozens of vendors at the Marketplace will delight browsers with an array of crafts, specialty items, and must-haves. The Book Nook, though a bit smaller this year and minus the brown bag end-of-event opportunity, offers exceptionally well-priced books, DVDs, and CDs. Shoppers can expect to discover the perfect treasure in the Collectors’ Corner for bargain prices. The cookies, pies, breads, and cakes at the Bear Paw Bakery will tempt shoppers to stop for a snack or a treat to take home. The Crazy Bear Café’s menu will provide a quick breakfast or lunch between shopping and touring.

Before or after the shopping trip, the Tour of Homes will offer a glimpse into five of the most unique and beautiful homes in Big Canoe, without having to navigate the roads. Everyone will have a favorite, whether the 30-year-old whimsical cabin on the lake, the beautifully decorated home on the ridge overlooking Lake Petit, or one of the Wildcat beauties that reflects the varied tastes of the owners. The vintage golf ball dispenser that looks like a gumball machine, the hidden compartment in the antique mantle, a traditional bocce court with crushed oyster shells, an American flag made by vets from whisky barrels, steel posts that support the house above the steep slope, cleverly repurposed items, or an artist at work are sure to delight.

Tour tickets cost $30.00 and can be purchased at www.bigcanoelegacy.org for a morning tour, 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., or afternoon, 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased in Big Canoe on the days of the tour. Buses will transport ticket holders from the chapel to the homes. Plan to start your tour no later than 1 p.m. to see all the homes. Tour homes will begin to close at 4 p.m. on both days.
