The fourteenth annual Antiques and Arts Market brought all types of interesting goods to the Morehead Conference Center. 

Spanning from March first to the second, the market housed vendors that sold products ranging from glassware, road signs, spoon rings and cookies.  

 Visitors traveled from as far as Ohio to view what was on display.  

“Everyone comes to Morehead, I think, with pretty arts,” said “Cotton” Bickers, a vendor at the market. 

Bickers sold rings made of antique spoons and state quarters. He began making the spoon rings as a project in high school and has attended the market with them for two years in a row. 

Morehead-based company The Salty Lick Mercantile set up a booth to sell Wise Owl paint and furniture salves, along with candles and other handcrafted items. Kelley Hager-Lyons, the owner of the company, explained that her business was only a year old, and that the Antiques and Art market was their first time showing their products. 

“It was more a love for antiques,” Hager-Lyons said about the beginning of the company.  

The Salty Lick Mercantile can be found inside of Back Door Antiques in Morehead. 

In addition to art and antique vendors, one bakery traveled from Portsmouth, Ohio to sell their cookies. 

“The market seems mostly antique, but we are having a great time meeting people,” said Wendy Osborne, co-owner of The Cookie Jar.
