Early Bird Shopping is Best at May 17, 2013 Springfield Extravaganza Antique Show & Vintage Marketplace



Want to see a Springfield Extravaganza in action?!! 

It's an amazing antique show. The PBS show, Market Warriors, filmed an episode at the 2012 May Extravaganza. Watch the entire episode online here.

See my post with all the fun photos I took of the cast and crew while I was there hunting for vintage treasures -- here. This is just one shot:





This is the big one, vintage lovers: The May Extravaganza! 

Spring is finally here, and that means great big outdoor antique shows. And here in Ohio we have the famous Springfield Extravaganza Antique Show.

For over 25 years, twice a year, this monthly antique show kicks it into overdrive and over 2,000 antiques and vintage dealers cover the fairgrounds venue. Wear your comfiest walking shoes!

The show is located at the Clark County Fairgrounds, 4401 S. Charleston Pike, Springfield, Ohio 45502. 

Directions and details here on their website.

[Here are my photos from the May 2013 Extravaganza.]



Listen to Shirley: ”The Early Bird Gets the Worm”! 


Early Bird Shopping
Friday, May 17, 2013 -- 7AM to Noon: 
Admission is only $12 (free parking) -- and it is good for all 3 days

This is a great value for all you serious shoppers. Get a hotel room and shop all 3 days. And you can hit the Springfield antique malls too. There are 2 big malls, with another 1,000+ dealers! 




Worms = Swag Bags!

The first 2,500 cars will receive swag bags (one per car) and a chance to win one of 6 shopping prizes in the form of “Vintage Marketplace Golden Tickets”!

There will be five, $100 golden tickets and one, $500 golden ticket. You may just be one of the lucky ones and find a golden ticket in your swag bag.

All golden tickets must be redeemed at the Vintage Marketplace tent [you can't miss their big tent in the center of the show], May 17, 18 or 19, 2013.

In addition to the golden tickets lucky show goers might also find a $250 gift certificate for Heart of Ohio, free food vouchers (of which there are 100’s), oodles of vendor discounts, and some last minute surprises brought to you by the fine folks of Vintage Marketplace.




Release the Hounds --- at Noon!  

At noon the ''regular shopping'' begins. Although this is the Extravaganza, so there's nothing regular about it. There's still plenty of treasures left.
Admission $7 (free parking)
