It's time to announce the April Craft & Vintage Market line-up! April may be bringing us rain, snow & hail but rest assured blue skies are ahead. Seize a Berwyn Spring day, by walking over to Friendly Coffee Lounge and shopping at the C&V Market. Berwyn is rich with makers and artists, the C&V is a way to showcase and support that creativity. Adding to the excitment, neighboring Autre Monde will be hosting a Spring Market from 10am-2pm. Lots of locally made goodness to shop this April.
