Sneak Peek: Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton’s “Home for the Holidays” Shopping Event

Imagine a place packed with one-of-kind pieces for your home with a fun vintage flair, the live entertainment has you tapping your toes as your kids get their face painted, and you smell the yumminess coming from all the food trucks. Those are just a few things you’ll experience at the upcoming Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton “Home for the Holidays” event – and it’s all for a good cause.

It’s all taking place November 2-4 at the Greene County Fairground in Xenia, Ohio, and will feature two barns full of vendors showcasing vintage finds, antiques, art, handmade items, seasonal plants, consumable goodies, furniture, children’s items, home decor, boutique clothing, and jewelry.

“Think HGTV show ‘Fixer Upper’ where older homes with ‘good bones’ are transformed into bright and airy homes and accented with refinished or retro furnishings,” explains Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton Promoter Tonya Ross. “Think Makers’ Market meets Estate Sales meets Etsy meets your local boutique. You will find something for your family, home, and closet at our event. Something for everyone.”

Ross believes that one’s home should tell the story of who they are, and that it should be a collection of what they love, and she believes event attendees will be able to find items that do just that at Vintage Market Days of Metro Dayton.

Ross recalls a story of a customer who attended an event and found a family heirloom. “A customer found a painting of a pink rose at one of our events, after purchasing it for her daughter’s bedroom she discovered it as painted by her husband’s great-grandmother,” she says. “A piece lost by the family, but rediscovered at our Vintage Market Days event.”

There have also been customers who have purchase their first homes and found furniture and decor they needed – from a dining room set to entryway benches.

“We’ve had bridal parties attend looking for wedding decor, professional photographers come to find photo props, and many more stories,” she adds.

Each of the events has a theme and that theme is carried out with vendor tags, entrance decor, staging decoration, and on the photo opportunity walls, which Ross says is a customer favorite.

“Our theme for November is ‘Home for the Holidays,’ and you will find our decor a mix of farmhouse, Victorian, and traditional,” she says. “So you can start your holiday shopping with us.”

In addition to shopping, there will also be workshops at the November event. There will be DIY paint demonstrations at 11 am and 1 pm Friday through Sunday and a fresh wreath class on Friday and Saturday at noon.

As far as entertainment goes, there’s a lot lined up for the event, Ross says, as coffee house-style musicians will perform all day Friday through Sunday. “There will be a stage with a seating area for shoppers to grab a snack or meal and enjoy,” she explains, adding that face painting will be available for free for children on Saturday from 10 am 1 pm.

Ross does have a few tips for those who plan to shop at the event. “Wear comfy shoes, bring a wagon or totes to carry your items, and take time to meet the makers at each booth,” she says. “They all have a story behind their business, where they found a piece or their inspiration for their handmade items.”

Vendors for the event represent not only the local region but also 14 states from throughout the country as well, so you’re bound to find something for you or someone you love at this curated event.

Event proceeds from the event will go to Circle of Victory, which helps cancer patients and their families on the cancer journey with financial assistance.

A three-day ticket is $10 and general admission on Saturday and Sunday is $5. All tickets allow for re-entry all weekend with a wristband and all vendors will be indoors, with food trucks located outside.

Sneak Peek: Cincinnati-based HGTV Urban Oasis

This guest blog was written by my intern Kate Byrd.

As I was driving up the road in grand anticipation of what to expect, I’ve seen so many HGTV renovations- I knew I was in-store for a treat, I couldn’t help but, think how cool it was that I was about to see up close and personal all the designs?

I used to interject when my parents put on house shows. But, I think now that I’ve entered my 21st year I have a new appreciation for house decorations, cabinets and flooring. My favorite elements to a house are the kitchen and bathrooms- literally a kitchen can make or break the house.

Oddly enough, as I pulled up to the house wearing my red dress pants, black shirt and red lipstick, I matched the exterior of the house. The exterior of the house is beautiful with its charcoal gray, white trim and front deck with accents of red- it is a Bearcat’s dream.

Walking through the door frame and looking to the right, at the nook nestled right next to the window I could imagine someone curled up on a fall day reading a book or drinking coffee.

To the left of the door, the HGTV magic hit me. If you’re not an avid HGTV fan, you might not understand “HGTV magic.” Basically, it’s how they throw so many different textures, patterns, and colors in a room and it flows magically. It always amazes me because I know if I did that it would look like an episode of “Hoarders.”

The open concept as soon as you walk through was overwhelming. The house gave a vibe of both welcoming and calming.

One of my favorite rooms is the front blue room. As soon as you walk by your eyes are drawn to the big sphere chandelier then the blue flower wallpaper, yes, I said wallpaper, but it works.

If you’re a fan of yellow you’d love the half bathroom. Even non-morning people couldn’t resist a smile standing in this radiant space.

As I said earlier, this space could have been completely thrown off if the kitchen wasn’t up to standards but, it’s beautiful, modern and open. The whole wall around the cabinets are subway tiles. Brian Patrick Flynn, the interior designer made a bold but, perfect choice and made the cabinets a forest green. Tying the modern kitchen look together with floating shelves.

If the first floor wasn’t impressive enough the backyard is a space, I’d want to show off to all my friends for Wine Wednesdays. There’s a covered pergola with lights, a gorgeous hang out space and comfortable lounging. The red accent colors against the green landscape and brown wood tie the whole backyard together.

Heading upstairs I chuckled immediately. I’ve always been a Cincinnatian but, until I went to college down here, I never heard people talk so much about Skyline. Mounted on the wall above the stairs is a huge- 3 way. The three-way black and white with abstract colors behind it really gave me the home vibe.

All the upstairs bedrooms are comfortable with a perfect amount of living space. The master bedroom’s walk-in closet was well organized and fun with a couch inside. The bathroom attached to the bedroom really tied the master together. The beautiful lighting fixture over the tub and walk in shower is fit for a queen. This bathroom used the matte design for the countertop and fixtures which I think looks professional and clean.

The additional bedrooms and one bath complete the upstairs. Overall, this house is draw dropping and I’d be willing to pack my bags and move in tomorrow if needed.

If you’re craving more images of this gorgeous house you can head over to the HGTV.com/UrbanOasis for a virtual tour. Also, starting Monday, October 1st to Wednesday, November 21 the sweepstakes giveaway runs, you can enter for a chance to win. HGTV will premiere the complete renovation Oct 3rd at 7 pm.
