A super chic vintage and vintage-inspired market is coming to the area with lots of fab finds to shop, food trucks, live music, DIY workshops and lots of fun. Read on for a sneak peek inside Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton’s upcoming “Life’s a Garden” event!
Mark your calendars for June 1-3 when Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton hosts its “Life’s a Garden” shopping event at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.
Vintage Market Days is an upscale vintage and vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market that features original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home decor, outdoor furnishings, furniture, seasonal plantings, live music, and food trucks.
“Vintage Market Days events are so much more than a flea market,” explains Tonya Ross, Promoter for Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton.
Launched in 2012, Vintage Market Days got its start in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where it began as an indoor/outdoor Paris flea market-style event.
“We strive to make Vintage Market Days more than just a sale,” says Ross. “Vintage Market Days events are a unique opportunity for vendors from the local region and across the country to display their talents and passions in different venues. The Market also provides the customer with a very special shopping experience and an opportunity for Vintage Market Days to give back to the local community.”
With more than 90 vendors signed up to participate in the June shopping event, as many as 10,000 attendees will enjoy a day of shopping, DIY presentations, live music, food trucks, and vendors from approximately 20 states.
“I cannot wait to see all the amazing items our vendors will bring, their ability to transform an empty booth into an over-the-top vintage display is inspiring,” says Ross.
Ross says that what makes these shopping events so great is that they give guests the chance to relax and enjoy great company while they shop for one-of-a-kind treasures.
“Vintage Market Days prides itself in creating an experience for the shoppers to escape their busy schedules,” says Ross. “We maintain a balance of vendors to present a market that showcases vintage antiques, garden, children’s signs, handmade items, art, jewelry, and clothing.”
There’s even a Vintage Market Days app that you can download for free, Ross says. The app offers users directions to the event, gives you the ability to enter for the giveaways, and will have the list of vendors available the week of the event.
