The word quickly spread and professional pickers across the country found out about this great event. These vendors have been stashing away unique treasures just for this event in Highland, Il. You will find items as small as a vintage skeleton key to as large as an antique buffet.
STL VMD grew so fast that we had to find a venue that could support the event. Madison County Fairground is just that place. Plenty of parking, room to walk and space to sit and relax while listen to live music and hunting for that special piece you've been looking for years.
Those of you who want the first chance at the vintage goods and treasures you need to come to the Early Buying Event, Friday Sept. 19th, 1-8pm (cost is $10). While you shop you'll be able to enjoy a concert by Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers, an amazing vintage band from St. Louis area. This evening will be filled with giveaways, music, food and good times.
Sept. 20-21 (Sat/Sun) is General Admission which cost $5.00, gates open at 9am and close down at 6pm on Saturday and 10:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday. The vendors will have restocked their booths with more lovely vintage finds and will be ready to go. Saturday and Sunday they will have demos by some of the areas finest and most talented. Look to the website for details and times.
This will be a one stop place to spend the weekend. With awesome food vendors, live music, plenty of parking demos, lots of room and the best vintage decor you have ever seen.

"So, dear friends, fans, vendors, customers, lovers… here is my promise to you:
I pledge, promise, swear that I will always work hard to hand-select amazing vendors to be a part of VMD and create an atmosphere of excitement, entertainment, and FUN to every market!
I often can hardly sleep at night, with the excitement of all the new and crazy (good) ideas I have for VMD. I love people! I love you! And I love all things vintage! And it is a dream come true to be able to have so much fun “working”!"
