HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The second Junknista Vintage Market was held on Saturday and Sunday at the Forrest County Multipurpose Center in Hattiesburg.

The two-day event featured vintage and antique vendors from across Mississippi and the Southeastern United States.

Show Promoter Kirsten Arbo said she’s been involved in vintage shows for over 30 years, and she is proud to bring the Junknista Martket to Mississippi.

“I really want to highlight some talented people in this area, instead of it being about the large shows three or four states over,” Arbo said.

“This is a great way to bring attention to the area; it’s not just Hattiesburg, but Mississippi in general.”

Various vendors presented and sold vintage and retro goods, antiques, industrial salvage, collectibles and much more.

P-Nut’s Pickers and Simply Vintage in Hattiesburg were two big sponsors at the event.

“It’s an amazing event because it’s bringing all these people to the Hattiesburg,” said Simply Vintage Co-owner Brittyn Ezelle.

“You have people and vendors from Alabama and Louisiana. It’s just a great event for the South.”

Junknista Vintage Market partnered with Southern Pines Animal Shelter.

More than three thousand people attended the two-day event.

The next market will be held Oct. 8 and 9. 

Junknista Vintage Market is the only vintage inspired market in the country that brings an on-site auction.
