Here’s the updated list of 2017 vintage and artisan markets, craft fairs, barn sales, and flea/antique markets in the Wichita area. Is it handmade? Secondhand? Covered with dust or restored with care? Those are the things we want to see for sale at the markets in this list.
Many of the local shopping events on our list have live music, food, and a fair-like atmosphere. They’re really fun! In addition to antiques or vintage finds, you’ll also likely find local handmade products and art. In almost all cases, you can interact directly with the artist, maker, or finder of the items.
