Vintage Market Days of Jacksonville is coming to Clay County Fairgrounds this weekend. The three-day event begins Friday. Over 120 vendors from 12 states will feature their vintage-inspired art, antiques, jewelry, home décor, and food trucks. The market is in a covered, 48,000-square-foot equestrian arena, so weather won’t be a problem.
“Vintage Market Days of Jacksonville showcases a diverse and well-vetted group of traveling, as well as local vendors,” says Stacie Lee, who owns Mad Dash Mixes with her husband, Nathan. Mad Dash Mixes is a family-owned business from Texas that specializes in food dips and meat seasonings. Everything is blended by hand. “Jacksonville is so special to us. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and making new friends,” says Lee.
There will also be plenty of home décor for sale. Stc. Finds from Indiana will be selling European and American vintage home décor, live greenery, and advertising signs in their booth. “We love Florida and we will take any opportunity to visit, so by doing the Vintage Market Days shows here is a good excuse to drive,“ says Sumaya Seccurro, who owns Stc. Finds, with her husband, Brian.
Doors open at 9 a.m. Friday and Saturday for pre-purchased ticket holders, and 10 a.m. for the general public. Kids 12 and under are admitted free. Parking is also free. The event will stay open each day until 4 p.m. Pets on leashes or in a stroller are welcome.
