The springtime Vintage Market Days of Dayton-Cincinnati is coming soon! Read on as we get behind the scenes of all the fun new things you can see and do at this year's event!
Since its first local shopping event last year, Vintage Market Days brings thousands to enjoy a weekend full of shopping, music, food and family fun — and continues to grow with each event. The next one is coming up April 26-28 at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.
“Vintage Market Days is an upscale vintage and vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home decor, outdoor furnishings, furniture, seasonal plantings, live music, and food trucks,” explains Vintage Market Days of Dayton and Cincinnati Promoter Tonya Ross.
The history behind Vintage Market Days goes back to 2012 when it started as an indoor/outdoor Paris flea market-style event in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since then, the events have spread across the country and offer attendees more than a sale.
Each Vintage Market Days event has its own theme – with the April event’s theme being “Memories.”
Vintage Market Days is introducing several new vendors alongside past favorites at its upcoming event.
“We will have an Airstream trailer for photo ops at our entrance, a 40-foot mobile clothing boutique, a vintage camper with vintage goods, and a cattle trailer transformed into a storefront,” says Ross.
More than 100 small businesses come together for the event that attracts people from throughout the Tri-State and the Dayton Metro area. Due to the success the event has seen in the last year, Ross goes the extra length to ensure that Vintage Market Days is an experience rather than just an event, something that gives those who attend the chance to escape their daily hustle and bustle and enjoy time listening to music, shopping with friends, and meeting the vendors.
“I love to see the vendor interaction and the shoppers faces when they discover the one piece they have been searching for,” she says. “I love to see couples attend our event and shop for their homes.”
And it’s more than just couples and friends who shop at Vintage Market Days. The family-friendly event means that the little ones are welcome to join in on the shopping fun as well.
