The Southern Cortes Community Association (SCCA) is creating a new night market scene at Mansons Hall. “Hidden Treasures” will begin this weekend, with local vendors selling musical instruments, tools, art, records and vintage clothing.

Rick Bockner is a local woodworker, musician, and healer. He will be selling many handmade items and materials related to woodworking, as well as a collection of copper. He spoke about how the new market event inspired him.

“Rather than ‘hidden treasures’ it might have been ‘buried treasures,'” he said. “My shop is too small to hold all this stuff, so I think it’s time to pass it on to some skilled younger hands or people that appreciate some nice stuff.”

Bockner said that the nighttime setting the event makes the intention of the event social as well as practical.

The first “Hidden Treasures” event will be hosted on Saturday Feb. 18 from 5-9 p.m. Rebecca Thacker is a volunteer board member for the SCCA and confirmed there are plans for the event to become regular. She also mentioned that the community event is free, there will be surprise musical guests and there is Indian cuisine for sale.
