11 Oct Highfalutin Market
Highfalutin Vintage & Antique Market
The name says it all: The Highfalutin Vintage & Antique Market is a grand, high-flying bargain hunt among booths piled high with the antiques, collectibles and treasures galore of more than 150 vendors from all over the South. This buy-sell-trade country market takes place 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21 and 22, at the Shelby County Fairgrounds.
“Antiquing is all about the journey, the hunt, the thrill of finding the objects of your desire,” said Lisa Porter. Porter and David Levine produce this market as well as the Fleur-de-flea Vintage Urban Market that takes place three times a year on Louisville’s waterfront.
Adding to the festival atmosphere will be live bluegrass music all weekend, plus petting zoo, family-friendly activities, including a large free pumpkin patch for kids, craft beer and local wine, a variety of local food trucks, and fall decorations, including pumpkins, mums and gourds.
Sponsored by award-winning Country Boy Brewing, Mingua Brothers Beef Jerky, Ramada Inn and Shelby County Tourism, the Highfalutin Vintage & Antique Market is a showcase for antique and vintage goods of all variety; coveted collectibles; repurposed, recycled and reclaimed items; tools and other garage treasures; funky junk; and handmade goodies.
Admission: $5/carload. A portion of the proceeds will go to a local charity in Shelbyville, The Mercy Clinic.
