New Kid in Town Gains Wild Popularity!

IT’S almost HERE! Make your plans to attend This FANTASTIC inaugural event. The Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market’s May Extravaganza (Extravaganza) is proud to introduce the ALL NEW Vintage Marketplace (VMP). It has been coined the “turducken” of  “green” shopping meccas.  An antique show, a flea market, and a vintage show all wrapped up in one package. What could be better? The answer is simple. NOTHING! The show boasts 60 plus dealers on the cutting edge of vintage, art, design, antiques, and yes, junk; this select group of exhibitors will inspire the next generation of enthusiasts with their unique style, energy and determination to share what they love.

It’s All in the Family:

The ever popular and long running Extravaganza kicks of its 2012 season with a new twist. The sister VMP Show held early February, 2012 in Hendersonville, TN was met with huge attendance and rave reviews. Due to the success of that event, Extravaganza will introduce VMP in Ohio, May 18 through May 20, 2012. Hours of operation: Early Bird Shopping: Friday, 8AM to Noon. Admission is $12 which includes show admission for all three days. Regular Shopping: Friday, Noon to 6PM, Saturday, 8AM to 5PM, and Sunday from 9AM to 4PM. Regular admission is $7 daily. The Extravaganza features nearly 2000 dealers and 20,000 customers each May and September. VMP will occupy walled and tented spaces in the show’s center hub at 4401 South Charleston Pike, Springfield, Ohio. A blend of the best vintage dealers is what show goers will find. Furniture and accessory dealers, designers, jewelers, crafters, and artisans combine to make this show OUTSTANDING!
