Here are some tips and tricks to make the most of this unique and FUN shopping experience at Vintage Market Days of West Columbus.

  • Utilize the loading zone and holding area for purchase so your arms are free!
  • Limited handicap parking is available.
  • Prepare before the market! Bring color swatches, pictures of rooms you are trying to complete, and measurements of spaces that need to be filled so you are prepared to make a decision on the spot. Most of the items are one of a kind and it may not be there if you have to think about them or leave to measure.
  • Plan to eat lunch there! The live music and edible delights from the food trucks are a real treat! 
  • Bring cash and be prepared to bargain!
  • Bring bags inside bags! Pack re-usable bags folded up inside your purse, as you make purchases you can take them out and fill them up!
  • Children 12 and under are free, and leashed fur babies are welcome. 
  • Make sure to join the event page for swag, shopping spree information and access to the influencer program!
  • Come picture ready! There are several photo walls and while the shopping is fun, hopefully you make memories you will treasure forever while you are there!
  • Re-entry is free with all ticket types. Show selfie with photo wall to re-enter.

We can’t wait to see you at the Market.

Kristen Fazzio
Kristen is a mama to three blue eyed girls, Bryn (10), Maya (6) & Tessa (5) and has called Columbus home since 2004. She was born in Pennsylvania, but her family moved a lot when she was growing up. Her family has been in Ohio since 1999 which is the same year Kristen became a Bobcat at Ohio University. In her 4 years at OU, Kristen met some of her very best friends, learned to stumble with grace down brick streets, rowed on the OU Women’s Crew team, joined a sorority, fell in love with her now husband Justin AND earned a degree! A “big girl” job in Retail Real Estate at LBrands brought Kristen to Columbus, and if she’s being honest so did the guy. They married in 2007 and started a family in 2012. When baby #2 arrived in 2016, Kristen became a stay-at-home mom and 18 months later, baby #3 arrived! It’s the hardest and best “job” she has ever had! In her spare time, Kristen enjoys exploring Columbus, reading, running, Crossfit, decorating, documenting the days through pictures, hiking, yoga, organizing and labeling things, attempting to be crafty, bargain shopping, DIY projects and spending time outdoors. Her favorite things in life are the beach, her girlfriends, travel, wine county, Mexican food, bike rides, sunsets, red wine, french fries, ice cream and her of course family!
