ARLINGTON >> Planning continues for the community-wide celebration of Norman's Attic on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 9 a.m.– 4 p.m. More than 45 vendors were signed up by the Early Bird deadline. Vendor spaces are still available. This year's event will bring back long-time favorite participants and a number of new vendors featuring a wide variety of unique items, gifts, crafts and collectibles: Art, jewelry, china, linens, antiques, knitwear, home-baked goods and other delicious treats and more. The justly famous St. James' Grill and Food Court will offer a menu of selections to tempt every appetite. Coffee and breakfast items will be available for the early arrivals.

Listed as one of Yankee Magazine's top 20 Vermont events, this popular event has been held for 19 years in historic Arlington, the home of beloved American artist Norman Rockwell and his family from 1939 to 1953. In addition to the vendors in the heart of the village, there will be numerous private tag sales throughout the area. A free map showing all the tag sale locations will be available on the day of the events. Lots of shopping, lots of hidden treasures, lots of fun for everyone: Norman's Attic is an event for the whole family and for people of all ages.
