Vintage Market Days of Dayton-Cincinnati is back for their fall market October 29-31 at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.
This market’s theme is “Spruced” and will showcase handcrafted products from vendors from throughout the region.
Vintage Market Days Dayton-Cincinnati Owner Tonya Ross is excited about this fall’s event, as there’s plenty of new offerings to make guests’ experiences even better.
“Spruced will feature a fourth barn added to the event, which will bring even more vendors and additional restrooms for those who visit us,” says Ross. “An 8 foot map will also be available to showcase the 4 barns, restroom locations, and food trucks when you come through the entrance.”
A vendor list and map is available for shopping reference, giving customers an enhanced look at what to expect as they wander the aisles and barns.
“Our photo walls are back with indoor and outdoor photo walls,” says Ross. “Take a selfie at our ‘Spruced’ photo wall and get back in for free all weekend by showing the selfie at the gate to re-enter.”
There are 3 indoor photo walls available for your use at the entrance of barn No. 1. “We’re also encouraging customers to share their stories with us, as one of our walls will provide you the opportunity to tell your story, share a praise, or put out a prayer request,” she says.
Swag bags are back for the fall market and will be given to the first 25 pre-purchased ticket holders in line on Friday and Saturday. Bag check will also be indoors, so you can check your bag at a window and be off on your way to shopping for new goodies to take home.
The four barns at Spruced will all have different offerings. Barn No. 1 will include the MeadowView Growers nursery sponsor with fresh Christmas trees and plants. There will also be indoor photo walls and a variety of 35 vendors.
Barn No. 2 will have a variety of 25 vendors and indoor restrooms, it will also be home to the bag check window.

Bushel & A Peck Reclaimed - Jessica Ervin’s shop Bushel & A Peck Reclaimed allows her to express her creative side through screen-printed, laser cut, or engraved signs, tees, or whatever else she can get her hands on. “We are snarky, quirky, boho/farm/mid-century. Dramatic, and a little like if a late 90s teen switched out her posters of Blink 182 to adult art,” she says.
Green Bubble Gorgeous - What started out as a hobby to gift friends and loved ones with really good bath and body products turned into a booming business. Green Bubble Gorgeous has grown to a full-time gig complete with a warehouse, retail store, and production facility for owner Krystal Szabo.
Hometown Woodwerks and More - Hometown Woodwerks and More is based in Hillsboro, Ohio. Justin and Andi Reno are the husband and wife team behind the business, and they love to work with all things wood, hence the name. In 2015, they started our small business in hopes to help their oldest daughter get through college by doing a few small craft shows here locally in Ohio and have since grown to shipping products across the US. "We recently added our laser to the mix in 2016. This allows us to be able to do all sorts of great designs for you from laser cut to engraved designs," Andi explains. "The laser allows us to expand further and reach items from wood to stainless steel tumblers, to acrylic ornaments and so on."
OBC Innovative - Jen Curtis started her own business making spirit wear for competition cheerleading. Today she’s creating spirit wear for teams and even small businesses all over the Cincinnati region. Since those early days, OCB Innovative has grown to now sell custom clothing and home decor.
