Klaus, one of our many talented VdM Elementary students, was highlighted on Show Me St. Louis’s segment of The Gypsy Caravan (an annual event sponsored by The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra Volunteer Association)!

Klaus’s mom, Mrs. Tricia Jostlein said, “It’s so great to see how Montessori and Suzuki have helped him develop confidence and presence!”

If you head to the Family Arena on Monday, you’ll not only enjoy a live performance by Klaus, but you’ll get a taste of all of this as well:

On Memorial Day, the St. Louis Symphony Volunteer Association will present Gypsy Caravan for its 44th straight year. A city within a city is created for up to 15,000 shoppers eager to find bargains and unique treasures as one of the Midwest’s largest antique, craft and flea markets takes place. This shopper’s paradise, on May 30, will be open from 7a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine and will be located at The Family Arena, 2002 Arena Parkway in St. Charles, Missouri.

This year will be the third year for Gypsy Caravan to be located at The Family Arena! There will be shuttles , off site parking, and enhanced traffic management to be sure shoppers can conveniently and efficiently access the event. The location allows for both indoor and outdoor booth spaces for vendors and attendees, as well as flat, accessible, adjacent parking for attendees. The indoor arena floor, mezzanine and south parking lot will be transformed as vendors display their wares. Gypsy Caravan is offering hundreds of outdoor vendor spaces as well as over 170 indoor arena floor vendor spaces, which will provide air conditioned comfort for both the vendors and ticket buyers.

Because Gypsy Caravan is a nationally recognized fair, vendors come from a number of states and offer everything from trinkets to treasures, birdhouses, to bureaus. It’s an incredible selection of antiques, collectibles, jewelry, furniture, fashions, crafts and much more. Something is bound to catch the shopper’s eye, capture their hearts and whet their appetite. There will also be a Hospitality Corner outside for those who would like to take a break, get out of the sun and take a look at their new purchases.
