New – Imagine That online store!


It’s true. After 15 seasons as a purely bricks & mortar shop, Imagine That… Eclectic Art & Gifts is also opening an eCommerce website. As of this post we’re hard at work getting everything set up. But please check us out at:

And if you know others who enjoy the Imagine That experience, please pass it along that many of the products available in the store will be available online for shipping or pickup.

What’s going on!?


What’s going on? Why Barn Market of course!

Imagine That in Glen Arbor is a mere (but magical) 384 sq. ft. Did you ever wonder what Carolyn could do if she had 6,000 sq. ft. to work with!? Come find out this evening or all day tomorrow at the Barn Market – located at the Northwestern Michigan Fairgrounds.

The photo above shows Carolyn & Kristin working the night away in preparation for the big event.

The Glen Arbor shop is open this weekend, Friday through Monday too!

Spring is here!


Mid-May is a busy time for Imagine That and especially in 2019 with our launch of “the Collective” at the spring Barn Market at its new and much larger location.

The Glen Arbor shop doors are open! Weekends (& Memorial Day) until June, then 7 days a week.

The Barn Market (sponsored by the Red Dresser) is this coming Friday, May 24 from 4-8 and Saturday, May 25 from 9-4 and is now located at the Northwestern Michigan Fair Grounds. “The Collective” is a mix of Michigan makers and more! We hope to see you there or in Glen Arbor, or both!

What we’re working on now


Here it is February 2019 and we are already working on the spring Barn Market (put on by Traverse City’s the Red Dresser).

The Barn Market is in a new location this year! Now to be held at the Northwestern Michigan Fairgrounds, it’s no longer at the Rainbow of Hope Farm. The date(s) have also moved earlier this year to May 24th & May 25th!

May comes up fast. We hope you’ll mark your calendar and plan to join us at this new incarnation of a classic event!
