Can you believe it's been nearly 7 years since Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market was born?!
Officially, our anniversary date is October 15th, but, as many Farm Friends know, we've traditionally celebrated in September with a flea market. But as The Farm is always dropping the fresh finds and fun, we've decided to celebrate with something new: Dealer Dicker Day.
Our annual June flea market is this weekend - Saturday, June 18th, and Sunday, June 19th - and this is the BIGGEST one yet!
Mall-wide sales inside & a flea market & other fun set up outside in the parking lot!
There will be amazing barbecue from Puff The Magic Potbelly, the VFW Post 762 will be there selling beer, and we will have live music!
Saturday, from 11am - 3pm, local favorite Smith & Loven Six String Circus will perform - and they always bring the fun!
Sunday, the Bluegrass Association of North Dakota, aka B.A.N.D, returns to the Farm with a live jam starting at 1pm!
In addition to some of our Farm family vendors selling outside, we also have vendors which are new to the Farm - including local artists and makers Eckoe Moore & Beyond Love & Light Work as well as vintage from Sarah’s Closet and Gatherings Collective.
The only thing missing is you - so we hope to see you there! (And please do share!)
Saturday, June 18th, and Sunday, June 19th. The fun starts at 10am each day & the antique mall will be open until 6 pm.
Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market is proud to present tintype portraits by artist Kary Janousek of Old School Collodion.
As we mentioned in our last newsletter, The FARM is now offering Scavenger Hunt or "I Spy" sheets.
Originally intended to keep little ones entertained while adults shop, it turns out these scavenger hunts are fun for folks of all ages! Moms, dads, grandparents - everyone seems to love the junk hunt!
In the Corner Market at the front of the store, you'll find clipboards with sheets listing items to find in the shop. Simply fill in the blanks with the booth or case numbers where you find the listed items. When the completed sheet is turned in at the desk, successful hunters will receive a free sticker with Kit, The Farm Raccoon, on it!
(The FARM pencil is yours to keep just for trying!)
While we began this, it was, of course, focused on a Valentine's Day theme - but we've plenty of other sheets available too. So if you've already done the one on a clipboard, just ask for a different version. Let's keep the junk scavenging fun!
Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market, aka The FARM, mixes the past with the future this Halloween season by offering live tarot readings at the antique mall!
Along with the usual antique, vintage, & historical items, there will be more unusual finds, including handmade scented “Horror Film” candles, rare Halloween blow mold figures, uranium glass, vintage x-rays, and other hard-to-find oddities. And the Holiday Hayloft will be open too.
he Farm will mix the past with the future too by offering live tarot card readings from local expert Bonnie Bee. Bonnie Bee is an intuitive tarot card reader with over 40 years of experience. Her clairsentient ability was passed down to her through her mother, who was also a tarot card reader. A five-card tarot spread reading with Bonnie Bee will be just $10.
The Halloween festivities begin on October 21st, Thursday night, at 5:30 pm, with a special seasonal shopping atmosphere created with special lighting.
Kristi Bixby, the owner of the antique mall, says, “When the overhead lights are off in the building, the antique mall has an almost magical ambiance from the glow of lights in the individual booths. Halloween season is the perfect time to showcase such a mood."
On Saturday, October 23rd, Bonnie Bee will return to offer more tarot readings from noon until 4 pm.
We hope you'll stop in for a spell!
This weekend is our annual Fall Flea Market - and it's also a celebration of the antique mall's 6th anniversary in October!
Kristi Bixby, owner of the antique mall, says, “We have been blessed to survive this many years, despite road construction, pandemic shutdowns, and everything else due to the support of our local community. We are so thankful to have also been voted the Best Antique Mall in the Red River Valley in 2020."
This annual fall event brings numerous buyers to the antique mall’s parking lot which is full of vendors selling vintage furniture, antique crocks, collectible retro toys, local pottery, vintage vinyl, rustic farm house items, repurposed furnishings, mid-century modern decor, and other vintage wares.
Along with the booths outside, all the vendors inside the antique mall will be having sales as well. The Holiday Hayloft and Tool Shed have been restocked with fresh items - which will also be on sale.
As always, The FARM includes local non-profit organizations in this public event.
"The FARM values being an active member of the Fargo-Moorhead community. Along with supporting all the small local businesses under our roof, we are proud to support local non-profit organizations who serve our Red River Valley,” says Bixby.
The Bluegrass Association of North Dakota (B.A.N.D.), a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of bluegrass music in North Dakota, will be in attendance both days of the flea market performing live jam sessions on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4 pm.
Proceeds from food sales will benefit Downtown Fargo's VFW Post 762.
Both organizations will be accepting donations.
The FARM’s Annual Fall Flea Market runs Saturday & Sunday, September 18th & 19th, from 10 am until 5 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Come celebrate with us!!

Worried about social distancing for this event? The flea market will be held outside in the parking lot and the antique mall itself is large, making social distancing relatively easy. We also have hand sanitizer at the door and a washroom about halfway through the antique mall too. Masks are recommended, but not required.
