Looking for something to do this weekend? The Springfield Antique Show Extravaganza is back for its fall debut.
The show opened Friday and will run through Sunday at the Clark County Fairgrounds.
The extravaganza is known throughout the United States as a top flea market and has been praised in numerous magazines and blogs.
“Shoppers from as far away as Japan descend on Springfield, Ohio, for its twice-yearly market of 19th-century antiques,” said CNN in 2012, after naming it one of America’s best flea markets.
A shopper talked about how she enjoyed the diversity of vendors, while exploring the market Friday.
“You can find anything, absolutely anything. If you look behind, you’ve got Santa Claus and the Virgin Mary…, where else would you find that? Hardware things and really nice pieces of jewelry and a lot of crafting items,” said Lori Sunderland, of Columbus.
Other shoppers said similar things, and talked about looking for everything from “bells” to “treasures.”
