Summertime Junkin'

Find yourself a little short on cash this summer?

Thinking that vacation is just not gonna happen? Well, before you put away the luggage you might consider a day trip or even a weekend getaway to one of the great Midwest antique shows only a few hours drive from central Indy. Beautiful scenery, great food, live music and some of the best “junkin’” on the planet await you on less than a tank of gas!

Lawrenceburg has been the sight of the largest, regularly scheduled, outdoor antique market since 1985. Boasting over 200 dealers, The Tri-State Antique Market is held the first Sunday of each month May through October. Have no fear of a rain out as foul weather takes the show inside to 125 sheltered booths.

One mile west of exit 16 off Interstate 275, it features free parking, rest areas, food stands and paved sidewalks all for a $3 admission charge (children under 18 are free). The Lawrenceburg show, which has been featured in Midwest Living, Country Homes, Antique Week and Indianapolis Monthly, draws quality dealers from around the Midwest. Merchandise from 19th century primitives to 70’s pop art is on sale from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with early birds admitted from 6 to 7 a.m. during dealer set up. Check out their website at

The Sandwich, Ill. Collectors Show offers a double treat for shoppers. Split into two sections, one side is set up with craft display, home made items and flea market merchandise and the second side contains antiques and collectibles from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Scheduled dates for this year are July 28, August 18, September 22 and October 27. For more info go to

From September 13 to 15, the Country Living Fair comes to Columbus, Ohio.

One of three stops selected for this years tour, the Columbus show will feature 200 artists and craftsmen along with live music, country cooking demonstrations and a chance to meet the editors of Country Living Magazine. Open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, this is more than just another antique show. Among the great finds available again this year are European nightdresses ($35), clock faces ($4), steel locker baskets ($35), and one-of-a-kind cotton dresses made from vintage fabric ($50 to $100).
