The Vault to host Market After Dark: Shop was named Ironton In Bloom’s Business of the Month for July

Ironton In Bloom presented its business of the month award to The Vault Market for July and the shop has several events lined up for the coming weeks, including a Market After Dark, set for Aug. 3.

The business, owned by Abby Kuehne and Amanda Cleary, is located at 211 Center St. and opened in early May.

Kuehne and Cleary describe the shop as a “collaborative space,” offering goods from mostly regionally-based companies, including artwork, antique furniture, health foods and pieces from artisans.

The shop also offers several classes and community events, such as the chemical-free cleaning workshop that was offered on Tuesday, led by Cleary, who also operates an essential oils business.

She taught participants about alternatives to household cleaners. This follows a chemical-free gardening workshop that took place in June.

There are several events lined up for the coming few weeks.

The store will be collaborating with the Ironton Elks for the Market After Dark.

“We’ll have vendors, local artisans and artists,” Cleary said. “It will be like a night time farmers market with jazz music, food vendors and beer and wine sales.

The event will run from 6-10 p.m. at the “Third and Center” area by the fountain.

Cleary said anyone interested in vending can find an application on their Facebook page.

On July 23, the shop will host a paint party at 6:30 p.m. with Bluegrass Mama Creations, in which participants can work on a wooden door hanger.

Another essential oils wellness class will be offered at 6:30 p.m. on July 30.

The store will also be setting up at the Rails and Ales event in Huntington on Aug. 10, which begins at 3:30 p.m.

And, finally, on Aug. 17, the shop will host a Reiki I Certification session at 6 p.m.
