It's SPRING, and the place to be is "the" SPRINGFIELD Extravaganza!!May 8th, 2013 in blog, projects, hot spots
Well, well, it's that time again...well almost - and you've still got time to make your plans to be at TBDFMITL (The Best Darned Flea Market In The Land). (That's a little "Ohio" thing...)
Here is the WHEN and the WHERE...and the WHY...well, you know what the WHY is - no explanation needed!!
May 17, 18, 19, 2013 Clark County Fairgrounds Springfield, Ohio
The Vintage Marketplace is returning again as a part of the Springfield Extravaganza, and so is our fearless leader/junker...Sue Whitney (applause...). We always have a blast when Sue's around, and throw in over 2,000 vendors on the grounds, and at least 50 vendors in The Vintage Marketplace...well, you get the idea! Junkers gone wild (maps, comfy shoes, snacks, cart, cash/checks/credit cards recommended!!) - that's all I'm saying! And, it'll be great seeing all of our fellow vendors and regular customers, AND meeting new - it just never ends (and that's a good thing!!).
Sue's busy...planning some junker fun, always with the idea of informing, entertaining and sharing her sincere love for all things junk and vintage, and reusing for a "new" function, or just for the sheer beauty!
We've (Nostalgia's Cottage) sold at Springfield Extravaganza for over ten years, and it IS a fabulous show! The addition of The Vintage Marketplace last year was just the icing on the cake (chocolate, please!!). Tens of thousands of customers flock (with shopping cart, wagon, large buckets (really)...or whatever in tow - in search of any little (or big) thing their heart desires...from fine antiques to primitives to mid-century modern to industrial to cottage and shabby style...to forgotten, rusted, watchamacallits!!! Something for every budget!! You'll find nothing but happy faces and the look of hope as people go "in search of"!!
Oh, and you don't want to miss the fantastic food vendors - a HUGE selection to pick from - and you know you're going to need a little extra energy to cover lots of ground!!! One of my favorite things...the apple dumplings! :)
There will even be entertainment on Saturday night...BIGG COUNTRY hits the stage for a little boot scootin' boogie!! (Yes, Sue will have her cowboy boots on...maybe I will too!)
Sue is planning a shop-a-long, and we'll have Annie Sloan chalk paint demonstrations, and more...
And...if you want to see a little "glamping" JUNKMARKET Style...be sure to stop by the BIG vintage Airstream (courtesy of Shannon of Stash Style) - and see what Sue's been up to (scary, I know, but it's all good!!). Shannon will also be showcasing her lovely vintagey clothing line, and tons of other unique finds!! This girl travels the country (fyi...Shannon, I wanna go too!!) searching far and wide for just the right things - for you and your home!
Details, details, details...it's all in the details: Go to Sue's previous post to see what's up - you don't want to miss a thing!!
