The Prescott Antique Show and Vintage Market has a wonderful history of organic growth over the years. Its roots lie in a local antique store back in the 1980s, whose owner had an idea to celebrate antiquing and bring her goods out into the town center. This grew to become one of Arizona’s favorite antiquing destinations, and with a few changes of ownership over the years it now calls the historic Rodeo Grounds its home, sets up twice a year and welcomes crowds of antique enthusiasts to come browsing.
Held over just one day, the Prescott Antique Show and Vintage Market is Arizona‘s largest such event. It draws in vendors and visitors from all over the state and further afield. With both indoor and outdoors spaces set up, the market can be enjoyed come rain or shine, though patrons usually enjoy fine weather here through summer and early autumn. What’s more, this is a 100% non-profit affair, with all monies raised by organizers being donated to local historical preservation projects. This means visitors can empty their pockets with pride that they are preserving not just the actual antique items on sale but also other historical sites!
The Prescott Antique Show and Vintage Market offers a great range of items for sale. Visitors will find china ware, marketing memorabilia, Americana through the ages, furniture items, vintage jewelry, lighting, nautical items, automotive memorabilia and a whole lot more. Collectors are certain to find a few treats, and casual shoppers will find plenty to reminisce about here.
When in town for the Prescott Antique Show and Vintage Market, antique enthusiasts should be sure to make time to head to Cortez Street just around the corner. Antique and vintage stores lie side by side along the street, providing even more unique and aged items to choose from. Combined with the market, this makes Prescott more than worth a visit.
