Doyle and Jayme Kuenkel, Co-owners of Charm at the Farm • The popular Charm at the Farm Vintage Market is back for its second of three markets this year, the weekend of August 19-21, with many new features! • This one-of-a-kind, upscale, outdoor shopping experience is held one weekend only each June, August and October. • Charm sits upon a 56-acre old horse farm has been transformed into an enchanting, open-air vintage market full of one-of-a-kind pieces, gifts, clothing, vintage furniture and home décor from 115+ makers and shops, 40 of those being NEW to Charm for the first time ever. • While the majority of Charm vendors are from Ohio, many new ones will be traveling from Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Illinois. • Charm’s 2022 charitable beneficiary is HER Cincinnati – a partnership centered around a shared vision to holistically support, empower and uplift women. • $1 of every Charm at the Farm ticket purchased throughout 2022 goes to HER Cincinnati which provides housing, education and recovery services that empower women to break cycles of poverty, addiction, and human trafficking. • Charm has also partnered with several local Pure Barre fitness studios (Cincinnati-Oakley, Mason and Dayton) to co-host a FREE Pure Barre fitness class at the farm before Charm opens at 9:00 am on Sunday, August 21. (Advance registration recommended) • Pure Barre is an isometric workout that anyone can do… no experience or equipment required. Just bring a yoga mat and wear comfy clothes to take the class at the farm before getting your Charm on that day! • Charmers will find more hand-painted artwork, pottery, metalwork, woodwork, plants, kids and baby gifts, trendy and “boho” style décor than ever before. There will also be more covered seating options and expanded lounge spaces, and face painting and crafts for kids. • There will also several food and drink options including fruit tea, coffee, tacos, BBQ, flatbreads, mac and cheese, pizza, kettle corn, Street Pops, and healthy options as well. • Be sure to say hello to Charm’s new baby goats who were welcomed to the farm this spring! • Charm at the Farm Vintage Market is located at 4953 Bunnell Hill Rd. in Lebanon, Ohio.
