On the fence about whether to take that impromptu road trip up north this weekend? Maybe this will help you make up your mind. The Big Heap Vintage and Handmade Festival is making its seasonal return to Flagstaff on Saturday and Sunday, June 21 and 22, at the Coconino County Fairgrounds.
And we have a feeling this is going to be good.
For those who have attended The Big Heap's other seasonal gatherings in Scottsdale and Tucson, there will be some idea of what to expect from the two-day showcase of salvaged finds. Unlike your everyday garage sale or thrift store experience, The Big Heap is a juried selection of more than 120 different vendors selling everything from the industrial and the handmade to the retro and the modern.
