“Just over six years ago, I was a healthcare director in Richmond, Indiana and recently diagnosed with breast cancer,” explained Tonya Ross, the owner of Vintage Market Days (VMD) Jacksonville, a franchise under the VMD umbrella. “I was sitting in chemo treatment and saw an article about Vintage Market Days. I didn’t hesitate and joined VMD in 2016. A year ago, I moved to St. Augustine and now manage the Jacksonville and Dayton-Cincinnati markets. Sometimes we endure hardships to find the direction our life is supposed to take.”
The events will provide a special holiday time shopping experience complete with visits from Santa Claus!
Dates and times: Friday, Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“There will also be live music, food trucks and more family-friendly attractions on-hand at this year’s market,” said Ross. “It’s a fun community event that really showcases the talented artisans and makers this region has to offer. We can’t wait to see everyone there!”
