Introducing the new Pickle Patch Market

It’s done. Finished. I’m all moved into the brand, spanking new antique mall, Pickle Patch Market in Sylacauga, Alabama. The first open day was last Saturday, July 30. It was a soft opening with the grand opening slated for sometime in October. But oh… my… goodness! Never in our wildest dreams did any of us anticipate the crowd that showed up!

People were circling the parking lot trying to find a place to park.

There were a couple of times the checkout line was so long it was snaking around the corner and into another part of the building. I don’t have any pictures of that. I was busy trying to help get the people checked out. My pictures, or even my words, can’t describe how phenomenal the opening was. I can’t even guess at the amount of people who came through. Some just curious, but many more were there to buy, buy, buy!

I took lots of pictures of the booths that are of interest to you and me. Meaning, the booths with vintage, antique and hand made things. So, prepare for a feast for your eyes. You can click on the pictures for a larger view. Actually, please do click on them. The small pictures are not so good. Not that the big ones are great, but the bigger ones do look somewhat better.

Heading off to the right and making the big, zig zag circle…………


Those two are our friend Pam’s booth. She did quite well. Sold a lot.


These two are our friend Teri’s booth. You can see – and buy – her artwork on Etsy at
A Drop In the Bucket


A cabinet full of pottery and glassware. A new friend also named Wanda.


New friends, Scotty and Linda. That door made into a hall tree in the first picture? It now resides at Melanie’s house.


I believe this booth belongs to some teacher friends.


Melanie and our friend Lisa are sharing the booth pictured above. Sorry about taking so many pictures, but I just love it!


Friends, Jim and Carol’s.



New friend Lynn. Yes, she sold the trunk. And the big table you barely see in the third picture and the green table also in the third picture. I was a little annoyed that the green table was already sold before I even saw it. Guess who bought it? Tiffany, The Cranky Queen! So I suppose if I can’t have it, and really I wouldn’t have been able to use it anywhere in my house, I’m glad she got it.


Friend Lisa. Another Lisa. Not the same one who’s sharing a booth with Melanie.


It’s not all old stuff. There’s plenty of variety. This booth has books. The little girl saw me taking pictures and posed a bit.


Ummm… I don’t know these people. But they have good stuff.


Amy’s booth.




And finally, we’ve circled around to Tiffany’s booth. Booths, actually. The last picture is of her closet booth because she didn’t think she had enough stuff for a whole booth!


Tomorrow will be a few pictures of my booth. If you see anything in any of these pictures you’re interested in, let me know. I might can hook you up with the seller. But be aware. The booths have already changed drastically. So much sold. Most of us are very pleased with the first few days.

The Pickle Patch is in Sylacauga, Alabama on highway 280. Either on the left or right, depending on which direction you’re going. (Giggle, giggle, snort.) OK. If you’re going south, it’s on your right. Past the Wal-Mart shopping center, Home Depot, a red light and the Krystal/Piggly Wiggly/Big Lots shopping area. If you’re headed north, it’s on your left. One of the first businesses you’ll see. There’ll be a school then a service station then the Pickle Patch. Come for a visit! They’re open Tuesday-Sunday.
