History of Vintage Market Days

Vintage Market Days is a franchised event that first began in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Amy Scott and Dianna Brown were excited to bring a pop-up vintage event to the area, and the first market was held in 2012 at Carmichael’s Pumpkin Patch in Bixby, OK. By 2014, Vintage Market Days had grown to eight event locations in five states. It was at this point that the market became a booming franchise business.

Today, Vintage Market Days hosts events in 20 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. It’s a wonderful experience for both vendors and customers alike!
