I’m excited to say that I have teamed up with Jenifer Hendrix of Jenifer’s Antiques in Conway to put together Antique Alley: An Antique Show and Flea Market in Conway, Arkansas on Memorial Day weekend (May 28-29)!! We have booked the Faulkner County Expo Center and outdoor Pavilion and plan to fill them up with over 400 booths of antiques, collectibles, and more!

Last year Jenifer held Antique Alley in Fort Smith, Arkansas, so she has the experience and vendor list to put together a great show in Conway! She was completely blowing up my phone on Friday as she contacted her favorite vendors, including some great out-of-state dealers. She specifically told me that Seed Box Antiques from Ozark, Missouri will be bringing their awesome stuff to sell!

The Expo Center contains 41,250 square feet of “blank canvas” to be filled with antiques only. Looks like we’ll be able to fit 215 10×10 booths inside.  I took photos of the Expo Center Friday afternoon while a group was putting together a wrestling ring for an event so I didn’t get the best photo, but you can get an idea:

The outdoor Pavilion will be where the Flea Market takes place. It’s 55,000 square feet, but it’s not all usable space due to half of the Pavilion having tiny 5×5 animal stalls.  I did some measurements and looks like we can have around 200 booths outside both under the Pavilion and outside between the Pavilion and the Expo Center.

I will be putting together a website for registering booths asap. We’re still gathering expense numbers for our budget, so the exact booth prices haven’t been decided yet. We expect to have everything figured out in the next week. I’m so excited that I had to go ahead and mention this fun event!

If you’re interested in becoming a vendor, please email me and I’ll make sure you’ll be first to know when we’ve got booth prices figured out!
