Mark November 4 and 5 on your calendar and join the folks in Webster Parish for the 23rd Annual Main to Main Trade Days. Whether you are an art lover, a bargain hunter, an antique shopper, a flea market and garage sale enthusiast or you just love the art of shopping; you won’t want to miss the Main to Main Trade Days experience.
The 50 mile route runs from Main Street in Springhill down highway 371 south through the Main Streets of the small Webster Parish towns of Cullen, Sarepta, Cotton Valley, Couchwood to Dixie Inn onto Highway 80 on the Shreveport Road, through Downtown Minden then back south on 371 to the Sibley Road Flea Market, south through Sibley. The food, fun and shopping begins at dawn each day and runs through dusk.
The sidewalks of both Minden and Springhill Main Streets will be filled with vendors. The downtown shops also bring it “outside” and offer store specials and bargains galore. Vendors are many and varied. One street corner may have homemade gumbo for sale by a local church group, while another has original handmade jewelry. You’ll find homemade pickles at one end of the street and original oil paintings on display on the other.
“Downtown Minden will feature food, art, and crafts,” said Mahala Hutto, Main Street Director for Minden. “A giant flea market will be located on the Sibley Road as you head south from Main Street with plenty of parking.”
“Plan at least one full day with us and two if you want to see everything along the route, Springhill Main Street Director Linda McDaniel added. “The clock tower triangle in Springhill is a hot spot for a variety of treasures. Shoppers and vendors are welcome!”
We must thank the sponsors and the folks who help make this event possible:
