Ready for a Labor Day Weekend Treasure Hunt? Tri-State Antique Market Returns This Sunday

Antique enthusiasts, get ready! The Tri-State Antique Market is back at the Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds Sunday, Sept. 4.

This antiquing tradition is one of the biggest markets of the season and will feature more than 200 dealers with a variety of antique, vintage, and retro goods.

The Market boasts five acres of furnishings, jewelry, early Americana, vintage clothing, retro kitchenware, mid-century modern furniture, industrial and architectural salvage, garden and home decor, and pop culture memorabilia.

"The September market tends to be one of the biggest of the season with an influx of dealers looking to take advantage of cooler weather and end-of-season bargaining," says event organizer Aaron Metzger. "We're known for having a legendary variety of dealers, and bargains will be lying around every corner for treasure hunters looking for that next great find!"

Plus, Metzger says, there’s nothing like the personal interaction you get at the event.

“You have direct access to the person who bought the item, and the story that goes along with it,” he adds. “If you buy the item, then you get to share the story with your family and friends. It’s one of the best, unspoken things about going to an in-person event like this.”

Hours are from 7am to 3pm for the general public, and early bird shopping starts at 6am. Parking is free, but a walk-in $4.00 adult admission is charged at all times. Kids under 18 and attended pets are welcome for no charge. Over half of the vendor booths are indoors or under cover, so the Market is held rain or shine.

You can find the Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds on U.S. 50, one mile west of exit 15 off I-275.
