Another weekend, another bevy of sales, outdoor markets and shopping events to add to your calendar. Here’s what’s coming up, and what’s worth shopping. We’ll see you out there!

Swarthmore Makers MartThe first-ever installment of this outdoor market takes place on Saturday, May 16th (rain date: Sunday, May 17th), in Swarthmore. You’ll find local and regional makers and artisans (like Three Potato Four and Arden & James) selling a mix of handmade items, vintage goods and art/photography. 10am-4pm in the Swarthmore town municipal parking lot, 432 Dartmouth Avenue, Swarthmore.

NINObrand Trunk Show at Knit Wit: A three-day NINObrand trunk show kicks off today at Knit Wit’s Bryn Mawr store. Go there to shop one of my favorite Philly designers (really, I’m obsessed!) and check out the new spring collection all weekend. Head there tonight for cocktails and a meet-and-greet with designer Bela Shehu. 905 West Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr. 

Clover Market: The juried outdoor market sets up in downtown Bryn Mawr on Sunday, with over 100 vendors (jewelry, antiques, vintage clothing and accessories, home decor and more), food trucks, free crafts to keep the kids occupied and more. Trust me: It’s definitely worth checking out. Along North Bryn Mawr Avenue between West Lancaster Avenue and Morris Avenue, 10am-5pm. Rain or shine.

Craft Phila-Liberty Bell FairThis juried open-air festival brings together dozens of local crafters and artisans — along with plenty of food trucks and entertainment for kids — for a two-day shopping festival at 6th and Market streets. Saturday, May 16th, 10am-7pm, and Sunday, May 17th, 10am-5pm. Rain or shine.

Millay Vintage Grand OpeningThe online vintage shop opens a brick-and-mortar on Saturday. Head there for refreshments, a floral pop-up shop outside and — the best part — free flowers with every purchase. Get more info here. 4390 Main Street, Manayunk.
