Vintage Market Days planned for holiday season


Just in time for holiday shopping, Vintage Market Days Jacksonville will bring more than 120 unique, vintage-inspired vendors to one place – making gift-giving for everyone on the “Nice List” a breeze. From homemade candles and home décor to vintage furniture, original artwork, clothing and much more, the three-day event will be held at Clay County Fairgrounds in Green Cove Springs.

“Just over six years ago, I was a health care director in Richmond, Indiana, and recently diagnosed with breast cancer,” said Tonya Ross, the owner of Vintage Market Days (VMD) Jacksonville, a franchise under the VMD umbrella. “I was sitting in chemo treatment and saw an article about Vintage Market Days. I didn’t hesitate and joined VMD in 2016. A year ago, I moved to St. Augustine and now manage the Jacksonville and Dayton-Cincinnati markets. Sometimes we endure hardships to find the direction our life is supposed to take.”

Founded in 2012, Vintage Market Days hosts events throughout the year and all over the United States. This particular three-day event in Jacksonville will provide a special holiday time shopping experience complete with visits from Santa Claus. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 2-4.

Admission for children under 12 is free. Cash and credit cards are accepted at the gate. Once purchased, tickets are good for re-entry into the event all weekend.
