Vintage Market Days Metro Dayton at Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio on November 2-4 features 2 barns full of vendors showcasing vintage, antiques, art, handmade items, seasonal plants, consumable goodies, furniture, children’s items, home décor, boutique clothing and jewelry.
Think HGTV show Fixer Upper where older homes with “good bones” are transformed into bright and airy homes and accented with refinished or retro furnishings. Think Makers’ Market meets Estate Sales meets Etsy meets your local boutique. You will find something for your family, home and closet at our event, something for everyone.
One of my favorite quotes-“Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.”
Special moments at some of our events- a customer found a painting of a pink rose at one of our events after purchasing it for her daughter’s bedroom she discovered it was painted by her husband’s great grandmother. A piece lost by the family, but re-discovered at our VMD event. We had a customer tell us she had just purchased her first home and found a dining room set and bench for her entryway from one vendor, she was so happy she brought her mother back on Sunday and they selected more décor! We’ve had bridal parties attend looking for wedding decor, professional photographers come to find photo props and many more stories.
Each of our events have a theme and we carry the theme throughout with our vendor tags, entrance décor, stage area and our photo opportunity walls. Our photo walls seem to be a customer favorite. Our theme for November is “Home for the Holidays” and you will find our décor a mix of farmhouse, Victorian and traditional. Start your holiday shopping with us!!

Shopping tips- Wear comfy shoes, bring a wagon or totes to carry your items and take time to meet the makers at each booth. They all have a story
behind their business, where they found a piece or their inspiration for their handmade items.
One special feature we will have in November is an artist that does pet drawings, he will draw your dog, cat or horse on Christmas stockings, bags or as a picture to frame.
