After moving to Main Street, what started as a backyard market has only gotten bigger in spirit and inventory. Owners, Terri and Nick Walton partnered with long-time friend Sonni Williams, store manager of Red Shed Redos Picket Fence, to start Behind The Picket Fence “Vintage & Handmade Marketplace” years ago. Behind the Picket Fence started in the Walton’s backyard (where you can find the Red Shed that comes into play in the current name) and soon bloomed beyond backyard capacity. The trio moved the markets to the Sheridan County Fairgrounds and they have only grown bigger since! Behind the Picket Fence Marketplace is a semi-annual market that hosts many local vendors selling crafts and vintage items.
Terri and Sonni run the downtown store with the help of several select vendors who work at the shop. You can visit Red Shed Redos Picket Fence in downtown Sheridan. With 30+ vendors showcasing their work in the store you can always find something that makes you smile. From handmade candy and jewelry to fine art prints, original paintings, quilts, wreaths, and metalwork. Terri wanted to remind people, “When you support a local artist or crafter, you are keeping it hometown and local. The local spending goes into the family and to support the continuation of art in the community.” The store also hosts junior vendors to sell their goods at Red Shed Redos! Terri wants to encourage kids to cultivate their creativity at a young age.
Because of the variety of artists and designers at the vendor-based business, Terri said the inventory changes constantly at Red Shed Redos Picket Fence! Creative people provide new and different items all the time, that’s why they’re open Wednesday through Saturday to be able to merchandise, change things up, and add new inventory each week.
Terri and Sonni have been working hard on new work to sell at the 14th Born in a Barn Sale on September 15th and 16th. You are also encouraged to save the date for the next Behind the Picket Fence Marketplace scheduled for November 11th at the Fairgrounds!
