Aldie Antiques Market & Shaker Forest Festival - Weekend Happenings

Looking for Shabby Chic furniture and decorative arts? Look no further than the Aldie Antiques Market on Saturday, September 13, 2008. This market that is sponsored in part by Bella Villa Furnishings is located at 39317 Mosby Highway (Route 50) in Aldie, Virginia, right outside Washington, DC. The market is usually held on the second Saturday of each month and not only features shabby chic furnishings but many antiques, vintage collectibles and decorative arts.

Held in the beautiful Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, Maryland, the Shaker Forest Festival features many gifted artisans and a fun atmosphere for the entire family. There are many demonstrations from woodworkers, soap makers, potters and metal workers using many of the tools and technology that the Shakers invented. The festival is held 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 13 & 14, 2008 as well as on September 20 & 21, 2008. There is plenty of free parking and shuttle service, prize giveaways and unique food and beverages. There are also new artists on both weekends of the festival.
