Start Your Holiday Shopping in Adel

Book your calendar for Nov. 12 for the holiday Vintage and Made Fair at the Dallas County Fairgrounds in Adel (it’s just north of town—look for the signs). Shop for vintage and crafted items such as handmade pottery, plus find food trucks and live music.

Avoid the mall this shopping season in favor of items handmade and collected by fellow Iowans and other Midwesterners at the Vintage and Made Fair Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Dallas County Fairgrounds in Adel. Reserve your tickets for $8 here now through Nov. 4, or pay $10 at the door. Kids 12 and under get in free; credit is accepted.

Stroll through buildings and booths to find all sorts of items for gifts—leather purses, bags and bracelets; earrings, rings and necklaces in numerous styles and finishes; artwork, cards and baskets; and more. Fans of vintage clothing and home furnishings can shop for one-of-a-kind finds. (At the fair’s September event, we shopped from 164 vendors and had to bring home hot honey and a hand-sewn jean jacket.)

Mobile trucks serving snacks and beverages are at the ready for quick nourishment throughout the day.
