Allyson Kilgore & Robin Griswold
Welcome to Model City Marketplace! We are Allyson & Robin, two moms who met at the baseball field, but quickly discovered that we share a love for antiques, homemade crafts, re-purposed goods, and other unique items. Couple this admiration with event planning backgrounds and the result is a new venture in our hometown, Kingsport, TN!
Our Mission is to plan a fun-filled event a few times a year that brings together antique dealers, artisans, crafters, flea market pickers and anyone who has a small business. We hope to provide exceptional events for vendors and shoppers alike!
To our knowledge, Kingsport has never had an event that features a wide array of vendors, including those with antique and vintage goods, all in one location. We see this as a great opportunity to bring exposure and more customers to small businesses and individual artisans and crafters. We want to provide the brick and mortar and home-based business owners a chance to sell their products to a large crowd and showcase what resides in their permanent stores in an effort to boost the number of people who frequent their shops!
