Cary said the chamber sifted through its list of vendors from its annual Catonsville Arts and Crafts Festival held in early fall and picked those that best matched the floral theme of the event.

"Mostly what we're going to be selling is concrete. We sell a lot of concrete for gardens," Sajauskas said of the benches and statuary that her store will sell.

"We're going to have a lot of jewelry that is floral related," Sajauskas said. "We're going to pick through our shop and anything that is floral will be out there that day."

Objects Found will also help judge the Spring Bonnet Contest that encourages people to dress up in their most outrageous and colorful bonnets.

Judges will award prizes for most beautiful, most theme-related and best bonnet for someone under the age of 12, Sajauskas said.

"I just think whatever people put into it, they're going to get out of it," Sajauskas said. "So people just need to show up, wearing their bonnets."

A successful event will help replace funding the chamber used to maintain its garden in front of its office at 924 Frederick Road and 40 planters along Frederick Road.

In addition to sales of vendor spots, the chamber will sell bedding plants and hanging baskets at the event.

The chamber had received $3,350 in Baltimore County Commercial Revitalization Action Grants for its planter program, Cary said.

But Baltimore County budget cuts discontinued those grants after June, she said.

"It's really kind of a combination. We want to certainly contribute to the beautification of Catonsville," Cary said. "But we also, because we're so close to Mother's Day, we want to combine it with a great idea to buy local for Mother's Day."
