Main Street in Dysart was closed down Saturday, June 22 for the Back Roads Vintage Market. Main Street was lined with vendors-some local-and others from all across the area. Despite the wind and possibility of rain, there was a great turnout. Booths lined the street and people wandered from vendor to vendor, exploring all of the wonderful vintage and antique items for sale.
Some of the vendors present were Ron and Lisa Wiebke of Elberon, IA. "Rough Art for Fine People" is what they have named their collection of rare and artistic items. Ron handcrafts and makes everything they sell from old restored barn wood. Lisa travels with him to help with sales as they go to different events all across the Midwest.
Nicole Nechanicky, a native of the Dysart area, set up her booth "FarmGirl Chaos" for the first time at the Back Roads Vintage Market. Nicole has always had a passion for old farm and vintage items. She decided to start rummaging through the family barn and attack and she started to find a lot of great things. So many, in fact, that she knew she would not be able to fit them all in her own home. After some encouragement from her family, she started FarmGirl Chaos. She was very happy with the turn-out of the Market, and cannot wait to continue with this adventure!
