Franklin Home Page Staff Report
After nearly 5,000 shoppers flooded the halls of The Factory, City Farmhouse Pop-up, shoppers - who represented states up and down the East Coast, and everywhere in between - helped bring in more than $20,000 for the World Food Program U.S.A.
Leading the effort was Sheryl Crow, who has supported Wold Food Program U.S.A. for years. She said City Farmhouse is "her favorite spot to shop for antiques," and offered a range of goods from her personal stash to shoppers during the three-day event, selling everything from antique and vintage pieces to parts of her art collection and other home decor items.
"Our first holiday pop-up market was a huge success, and we are so thankful to Sheryl for jumping in for a good cause," said Kim Leggett, organizer of the City Farmhouse Pop-up Fair. "People came to Franklin from all over to see her and shop the show. Many of the vendors have said this is one of their best shows they've ever had."
Coordinated by Kim and David Leggett, this is the first City Farmhouse Pop-up Fair that the pair has hosted at The Factory at Franklin.
Kim Leggett said the experience went so well at The Factory at Franklin - for both guests and vendors - that they plan to have all future City Farmhouse Pop-up Fairs at the venue on Franklin Road.
"There's such a cool energy happening at The Factory right now with all the new shops and restaurants, and it's the perfect space to host an event like this," she. "We're so excited about this show that we're already planning the next one in June."
Those who missed the opportunity to enjoy the 2015 City Farmhouse Holiday Pop-up Fair need not worry: the Leggetts are already coordinating the next series for next year, and plan to announce 2016 dates in the coming months.
