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.

Contact Reneé at 530-295-9486 or e-mail for more information.
