Nellie's "Vintage Extravaganza" 2016

We're over the moon excited! Nellie's Vintage Extravaganza has been chosen by Romantic Country magazine as one of the "Best Fall Fleas & Tent Events" in this month's issue. It will be on newsstands at the end of September. I buy mine at Barnes & Noble.

Nellie's Vintage Extravaganza--13th year of hosting events. 

Our fall 2016 event has a line up of over 55 vendors peddling the best in vintage swag, live music all day and food trucks! Shoppers love our event because every vendor's product line has a vintage component. You won't find perfume dealers, big lot close outs or cheesy crafts at Nellie's! Just fabulous vintage, repurposed furniture, shabby and cottage decor, architectural salvage, industrial and boho styles and cool jewelry. If you can't attend on the first day...no worries...our vendors completely restock for Saturday...so you'll still "get the good stuff" on Saturday!

Find the list of vendors here with a link to their facebook page!



The sale is Friday and Saturday, October 7 & 8, 2016 in a two acre field at 10985 Main Street in Roscoe, IL. Look for the red farm house (Meyer's Canine Colony)...the event is held on the property and in the back field. In addition to great vintage, we have live music all day. The current line up includes Lone Canary, Ron Rawhoof, Andrew Robinson, Ryan Bielefeldt, Kipster & Sisters, and Thinking Aloud.

You won't get hungry either! Primetime Towne Fryer will make your mouth water with their juicy stuffed burgers and Jacked Up Chicken Melts! Or, satisfy your fair food cravings at Frybabies trailer where you'll find Fry Bread Tacos, Apple Pie, Onion Rings and Sweet Tea! Yolo's Sweets is serving up apple cider donuts, cupcakes and hot coffee! Of course on your way in or way out, stop by the Roscoe Boy Scout Troop 620's Kettle Korn booth for a bag of the best Kettle Korn around...sold in dozens of flavors like Peppered Bacon, Tutti Fruti, Green Apple, Chicago Mix and of course Caramel.


In case you've never been to our hip event...here's a link to last year's photos...or view the video below.

Nellie's FINAL barn sale at my home!















For the past ten years I have held a barn sale at my home--which has grown and grown--and has completely morphed into what is now my Nellie's Vintage Extravaganza with 55 vendors--held in a separate location from my home. On Thursday and Friday, June 16 & 17, 2016 I will be hosting the FINAL sale AT MY HOME! I am purging all vintage items that are in my barn--at 50 to 75% off--so come and get it!!! (Don't worry, the fall October 7 & 8 sale is still on as planned with 55 vendors).

For the first time ever I am holding evening hours for all the shop owners who have not been able to get here during the day!

Thursday, June 16 from 4pm to 7pm
Friday, June 17 from 9am to 4pm

As always, there are no early sales--and the line typically forms early. It's a bit different this time around. I will be holding the entire sale in the BACK YARD...there will be no furniture in the garage or driveway in my front yard like in the past. There will still be two lines that form...one in the back along Burr Oak Road, and one in the front, and we will walk you around the house to the back yard.

10856 Branding Iron Lane, Roscoe, Illinois

Remember...this sale is at my home so please be considerate of neighbors and don't block lawns, driveways or mailboxes!

Here's what you'll find...and I will post photos next week on my facebook page as I start moving items out of the barn during set up!
