MOUNT VERNON - Antique lovers will soon have a new place to shop downtown as Crickets is set to open soon at 120 S. Main Street. Vendors will be selling antiques, jewelry, primitives, vintage period items, curios, books, art objects, toys and more.
Several local vendors have come together as Crickets partners. They are Ann Hudson, Barbara Gibson, Ann Laudeman, Cindy Sperry, Laurie Duchesne, and Perry Brokaw. Laudeman says more vendors are being sought. Consignments will not be taken initially and the store will not be a flea market.
Laudeman said, "We're eager to be open to enhance the retail spaces downtown while other businesses are starting this year."
Crickets will be open Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Vendors interested in more information about Crickets may call Ann Hudson at 740-397-3565.
