More than 75 vendors will take part in this weekend’s event, including artisans, small business owners, crafters, bakers, and more. Attendees will find unique gift ideas for Easter or Mother’s Day among clothing boutiques, jewelry, bakeries, face painting, coffee, tea, chocolates, wine, collectables, popcorn, massages, beer, T-Shirts, cosmetics, candles and wax melts, home décor, resin items, natural pet treats, alpaca items, skin care, massages, candy, Etsy owners and much more.  The full list of entrepreneurs can be found at

The Easter Bunny will visit the mall from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. A professional photographer will be on hand accepting donations for professional digital photos.
