Time to Decorate with Venice Mercato

| Jodi Schwarzenbach |

While we were home during March and April, many of us dug into home improvement projects we had been avoiding. From painting walls to pruning bushes and organizing closets, it felt good to do something positive for our home environments which have become so important to us. And, now that the arduous work is complete, it is time to decorate and reimagine newly painted and scrubbed surfaces. From flowers to pillows, and frames to lamps, there are so many ways to add life to boring home spaces.

It seems that everywhere we turn decorating programs abound online and on the television. Some people really have a knack at seeing a project through to completion, choosing just the right accessories to make a space feel comfortable and homey.

If you are not one of those people who can create amazing one-of-a-kind vignettes using Dollar Store and thrift shop finds, there is an upcoming event you do not want to miss. Not normally held during the summer months, Venice Mercado will be brightening June with a new show.

Described as “Venice’s Premiere Market for vintage, up-purposed/salvaged goods, garden, home décor,” Venice Mercato is our own little slice of Flea Market Flips meets Fixer Upper, except it’s not homes they are redoing it is all the stuff that makes a house feel like a home. From reimagined fans that are now wall clocks to license-plate designed pendant lamps, the artists and vendors at Venice Mercato bring the most incredible, high-quality items that are bound to fit into your home in some fashion.

Generally held from September through May, Venice Mercato is treating followers to a summer show at the end of the month. Running June 27th from 9 AM to 5 PM and June 28th from 10 AM to 5 PM, homeowners and decorators will be sure to return home with one-of-a-kind creations to dazzle their homes and offices. Be sure to mark your calendars for this special event. Venice Mercato is located at 607 Spur Street in Venice.
