While its storied past still radiates, downtown Long Grove’s promising future is now just as evident as the town-wide restoration plan continues. New roads, sidewalks, and lighted streetscapes are paving the way for a new generation of businesses while rejuvenating beloved mainstays. Long Grove’s mission of bridging yesterday’s timeless charms with today’s modern conveniences were well represented at the 2019 Vintage Days market.
For the 4th consecutive year, Long Grove Vintage Days showcased all things vintage, reclaimed, hand-made, upcycled, antique and repurposed in an open-air summer marketplace this August. As always, Vintage Days gave everyone from the vintage collector to the admirer a plethora of enduring products they can’t find anywhere else. This year’s event was showcased along the newly renovated Old McHenry Road in the heart of downtown – giving record breaking crowds a feel for the new digs.
Guests perused 40-plus featured booths that began at Olivia’s Boutique and continued through downtown past the Visitor’s Center. Attendees also had their choice of vendors serving food, snacks and tasty beverages including local craft beer served by the Long Grove Lion’s Club. Helping set the retro vibe at Vintage Days 2019 throughout the weekend was live music, a penny carnival, complimentary tractor rides and great shopping!
