Midwest’s Trendiest Vintage Market
A new concept on an old idea: bring in only the most ambitious & trendiest antique pickers + makers, create a well curated shopping experience for attendees, and limit the number of tickets sold (available on our website) to cater to the intimacy of the show.
Brought to life from an HGTV dream, Iowa Gathering is a highly curated vintage market bringing in the best of the best pickers + makers from all around the Midwest. This market is hosted seasonally, showcasing different up and coming venues throughout the State!
Our motto: Shop, eat, roam, play.
All about the experience, founder Emma Hicks had a vision of creating a market for over 8 years. There was never any gumption to move forward or need for another big vintage market. In July 2017 Emma got the opportunity of a lifetime: to film a pilot of her “day in the life” with her family picking barns, unburying treasures, and fixing up to sell at different markets/shows. The film crew had strict dates to film this footage and there were no markets going on in the area when it came time to sell these antiques. In 3 weeks time she whipped together what is now known as the trendiest market in the region; #iowagathering! Iowa Gathering has now been featured on national television, “Small Town, Big Pick”, Rural Revival Podcast, Cheers,Mama! blog, Paula Sands Live, QC Times, and more!
