Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Montana

Community Based Program
This is the “traditional” BBBS model in which a mentor (Big) and a mentee (Little) meet 2-3 hours each week outside of the home and school setting. Our Bigs make arrangements with the parent(s)/guardian(s) for a weekly activities with the Little. These outings can be as simple as a walk to the park to throw a frisbee or a trip to the local art studio to paint together. We know that the specific activity is not important, what is important is consistency, kindness, and a desire to grow together.

School – Based Program
Site-Based Programs: Our School Buddies program is designed to allow mentors to meet an elementary student at their school during normal school hours. Bigs meet their Littles for one hour each week, often during lunch and/or recess, for activities such as shooting hoops on the school playground or visiting the school library for board games. High School students are eligible to serve as mentors in this program

Our Site-Based Plus: is the same program as our School Buddies, an hour a week together at the Little’s school, with the addition of an opportunity to meet off school campus one time each month for an activity in the community. We see this is our best of both worlds program.

The Market Beautiful - Montana Summer 2021

About The Market Beautiful

We started our markets in Somers, MT in 2010. We have always and will always be a vintage market, but we also bring in trendy handmade items as well as boutique clothing that you cannot find at a box store! Our priority is taking care of our vendors as best we can, making sure they succeed, while giving our shoppers the best shopping experience ever! We choose vendors that we are confident will do well with our demographic. We would hate for anyone to waste their time, money, and hard work by not succeeding at our event, so we do not accept vendors with merchandise that we feel would not be a big hit with our specific shoppers. Being a vendor at other vintage markets is a good thing to mention, however it does not always mean that you make a good fit for our market. We strive to be different from other vintage markets which sometimes means bringing in different vendors.

Market Beautiful Vendor Information

Are you interested in being a vendor at Market Beautiful? Vendors will set up Thursday the 28th and Friday, the 29th; take down- Saturday, July 30th. Categories are limited so that the event is not oversaturated with one type of merchandise, except for vintage. Market Beautiful is looking for unique items not those that can be found at box stores. Learn more and apply to be a vendor – HERE

“We can never have enough VINTAGE! Primitives, antiques, architectural salvage, mid-century, and retro décor is what we love! However not just ANYTHING vintage sells at our event. We are looking for the vintage that our shoppers buy, but also a good display is KEY! Trendy handmade merchandise is also a big hit at our shows and adds a variety! Boutique clothing is something that our shoppers also love! We like to add UNIQUE vendors that we know our demographic would buy from!”
