Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 18 and make plans to attend this year’s Spring Finders Market, presented by Jump Jive Productions.
This community-driven, one-of-a-kind flea market brings together patrons and vendors from all over the Decatur area to celebrate and support local craftsmanship. Shoppers and treasure hunters can spend the day perusing over 80 booths and tents selling vintage items, handmade goods, artisan decorations, upcycled treasures, unique clothing, rustic picks, and more. The Spring Finders Market also features a cash bar, live entertainment, and some of the most delicious food trucks found in the midwest.
The Spring Finders Market will take place at the Decatur Conference Center Hotel, located at 4191 US 36 West (Wyckles Road). Admission is $5. Children 12 and under get in free. This is a rain or shine event and includes both an indoor and outdoor area. For those who might be traveling from out of town, the Decatur Conference Center Hotel is offering a special rate of $92 a night for both shoppers and vendors. You can make reservations online or call 217-422-8800
