05 Mar Market season is here and we’re in Springfield this weekend for Hobnob!
You may already be aware of this but just in case you’ve been living under a rock – or all this snow we’ve been getting – market season is here!
Last weekend we had a fab time at the Illinois Product Expo and now we’re gearing up for this weekend’s Hobnob Market at the Illinois State Fairgrounds’ Expo Building.
It’s safe to say we’ll have all your favorites plus more – which of course includes our amazing new sparkly lip balm in collaboration with glitter queen Dear Katie Brown and our ever-so-popular whip – so come and see us on Friday and Saturday for all your Easter, birthday, wedding favors, general grooming, and gift giving needs!
Early bird shopping takes place between 4pm and 9pm on Friday and tickets are $10 in advance or at the door. However, advance tickets get you in FREE on Saturday too! On Saturday you can come and shop till you drop from 9am to 4pm and admission is $5 per person at the door. Kids 12 years and under are FREE both days.
We will also be having a giveaway for TWO free HobNob Season Passes this week, so watch our social media for info.
If you’re visiting from out of town the Illinois State Fairgrounds are located at 801 E Sangamon Ave in Springfield IL and about two miles west of the Interstate 55 exit for Sangamon Avenue. Access to parking and the Expo Building is via the main gate (Gate 1).
So, what else do you need to know? Parking is FREE and there’s plenty of it. You can come in and out of Hobnob to take purchases to your vehicle as much as you like and there are plenty of beverage and food options inside – believe us, we take full advantage of the hot, tasty, food and drink on sale. We highly recommend A&A Pizza-potato bacon…trust us . And don’t worry, you won’t freeze, there’s heating throughout the building! Last, but by no means least, service animals only are permitted but you can purchase one of our paw balms for your four-legged friend(s) at home!
We can’t wait to see you and some of our favorite vendors/friends including Rolling Meadows, Cottage 960, Sweet Tea & Jesus, untamed roots, Just the Basics, The Honaker Homaker, Brittany Jane’s… there are too many good ones to name. There will be 104 vendors!! Holy Cow!
So shake of the winter blues, spring into action (don’t forget the clocks go forward on Sunday!) and come Hobnob with the best of us!
