Tri-State Antique Market:

2017 Season Opens May 7

            Lawrenceburg, Indiana: The Tri-State Antique Market will begin its 2017 season at the Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds on Sunday, May 7.  The Market earns its title as “Indiana’s largest antiques and vintage-only market” with nearly 250 vendors selling everything from early American primitives to mid-century modern at each of six monthly shows.  A generous and eclectic mix of furnishings, jewelry, decorative arts, primitives, textiles, collectible housewares, military relics, architectural and industrial remnants, garden decor, and pop culture memorabilia ensures something for everyone’s taste and budget.

            The Market has been an important regional resource for over 30 years and attracts nearly 20,000 visitors each season.   Longtime patrons include advanced collectors, antiques retailers, DIY home decorators, arts enthusiasts, and all those who appreciate the history and character of  time-tested cultural artifacts. Market attendance has resurged in the 21st century with a new generation coming in search of the unique vintage materials that characterize current decorating trends focused on the reuse and repurposing of items from local sources.

Lawrenceburg is conveniently located in the southeast corner of Indiana near the borders with Ohio and Kentucky, making it an easy drive from points in all three states. The city’s fairgrounds are just off U.S. 50, approximately one mile west of exit #16 off I-275.  The modern, five acre facility features paved walkways, shaded groves, large open-air pavilions, and contemporary facilities. All areas are wheelchair accessible.

            Tri-State Antique Market sessions are always held on the first Sunday of the month, May through October. Over half of the vendor displays are indoors or under cover, so the event takes place regardless of weather.  Public admission hours are from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM EDT with earlybird shoppers admitted during dealer set-up beginning at 6:00 AM.  A $3.00 adult (over age 18) entry fee is charged at all times. Attended pets are welcomed.

            Complete Tri-State Antique Market information, including driving directions, area accommodations, and a photo gallery of past Market finds is available at  Co-managers Aaron Metzger (513-353-4135) or Bruce Metzger (513-738-7256) may also be contacted by phone for additional details.
