Shopping, picking, and hunting for all things chippy, vintage and unique can be loads of fun! It’s even more fun when it’s all under one roof! This is the amazing experience that Vintage Market Days brings when it comes to a town near you. It’s a wonderful place to grab your girlfriend and go for a full day of it! Be prepared to take lots of fun pictures, eat lots of yummy snacks, shop til you drop all while having a lot of fun doing it. This is a quick idea of what you can expect out of your Vintage Market Days experience and 7 of my favorite vendors…
PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES ARE EVERYWHERE
Vintage Market Days is an upscale vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home décor, outdoor furnishings, yummy foods, seasonal plantings & lots more! The typical market is a three day event held several times a year in 60 different communities throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, & Texas. It is a primarily vintage shopping experience. Although they are spread all over the country, most of the events have similar times and venues. Below you will find a few quick tips that should help you out, if you’ve not yet ever been to one of these events.
- Pricing is similar at all Vintage Market Days events as follows: Friday $10, Sat & Sun $5, Kids 12 & under are free.
- Most all events are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm.
- Bring cash and card as some vendors do not take cards. There is usually an ATM onsite.
- Carts and wagons are welcome to tote your items!
- Be sure to bring a truck in case you find that perfect piece of furniture!
- Wear comfy, old shoes! It is usually a hard packed dirt floor.
- If you find a one of a kind don’t hesitate to buy it first time around. Can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard I wish I would have bought that and now it’s gone!
- Tickets are available online, but also all weekend at the door.
Below is a quick video tour of my most recent trip to a Vintage Market Days event here in Decatur, Texas followed by some peeks inside of my favorite vendor’s booths. video Prior to becoming a DIY blogger, I owned a cute vintage farmhouse home decor shop in my small downtown area where we sold lots of unique finds and fun antiques.
After shopping several Vintage Market Days events in multiple locations for vendors for my storefront; I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know a lot of these vendors personally. Here are just a few of the awesome friends I’ve made (including a couple of new ones) along the way over the years and their amazing booths showcasing their creative talents!
