Vintage & Made Fair® is inspired by indie craft and all things vintage. The Summer Edition will be hosted at the Franklin Jr. High which was once a school and large church and now being restored into an authentic historic neighborhood complex in Des Moines, IA. The Fall Edition is nestled on the Dallas County Fairgrounds, in Adel, IA (15 minutes west of West Des Moines). Vintage & Made Fair is an indoor/outdoor market featuring antique and vintage home décor, jewelry, handcrafted goods, outdoor accents, seasonal flora, local eats and everything you need to create a vintage and handmade lifestyle.
Our goal is to empower the creative community by cultivating a knowledge and respect of vintage found items and handcrafted goods while providing a fun shopping environment with fantastic small businesses.
