Picking for treasures

By From page B1 | June 21, 2013

Come to the Coloma Country Inn, 345 High St. in Coloma, on Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23 for the second annual “Peddlers and Pickers Antique Faire” — a vintage mercantile event.

This is a great antiques and sundries sale and event that is akin to a mini-festival.

Enjoy the day in historic Coloma, a fabulous destination as well as a gateway for wine tasting, picnicking, strolling and local recreation.

To add to the excitement of treasure hunting and picking, this year’s “Peddlers and Pickers Antique Faire” will feature a rustic/industrial salvage sale just up the road from Coloma Country Inn on Cold Springs Road, and a treasure hunt.

Shoppers can also enjoy a special discount with a peddler’s coupon at David Girard Vineyards.

Back at Coloma Country Inn, nibble on tasty, affordable food from Capital Sierra Catering and grab a piece of homemade pie or ice cream at The Argonaut. There will be a discount with the secret word.

The two-day event hosts an exceptional array of goods from antique to vintage, creatively repurposed items, jewelry, quality hand-crafted pieces, edibles, floral and more.

Live music, tasty food and friendly vendors provide a fun and memorable atmosphere.

The LoCol Farmers Market, at the Grange, will be open on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., an extra hour in the afternoon to accommodate shoppers. Artisans from The Painted Owl on Main Street in Placerville will be doing a furniture painting demonstration.

Left of Cool will play a blend of sweet harmonies and lively music on Saturday, June 22 from noon to 3 p.m. On Sunday, June 23, J. Woody plays country rock and Americana from noon to 2 p.m.

The faire is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Carpooling is suggested. Limited, free parking is available at Coloma Country Inn. Parking is available at Marshall Gold Discovery Park for a fee.
