We’re Vintage Depot, a family owned and operated antique store in Springfield, Ohio with an eclectic mix of vintage collectibles.
We’re located at 2905 High Street on Springfield’s east side. Originally built for a Coal & Feed Store that capitalized on the neighboring railroad tracks, the shop opened for business in December 2012. We’re only two miles west of the Clark County Fairgrounds and open every weekend.
As a buyer, seller, and collector of antiques, Ron held down the same booth at the Springfield Flea Market since his first show over 40 years ago, the French 500 in Gallipolis for a decades, and The 127 Sale – The World’s Longest Yard Sale every year for a decade. Cancer took him from us in May 2018 but his legacy lives on at the shop.
Ron’s philosophy was the family that antiques together stays together. The antique-bug struck four generations and all provide a helping hand at the shop. On any given day you’ll see them working behind the scenes, stocking inventory, helping shoppers, and supporting Traci, Sheri, and Lori.
We have an eclectic, vintage product mix that’s stocked weekly and ranges in categories from glassware, cookware, sports memorabilia, vinyl records, toys, books, furniture, tools…basically anything you can think of.
Ever wonder what it’s like to run a family business? We’ll give you the inside scoop.
After being temporarily closed since April, Vintage Depot will re-open this weekend with new operating hours (Saturday 8/18/18 from 10-5 and Sunday 8/19/18 from 12-4 or by appointment). Food, drinks, new inventory, and great deals will be available all weekend long! In addition, thirty percent of all proceeds will be donated to Cancer Research in Ron’s honor. All three of Ron’s daughters (Traci, Sheri, and Lori) are ready to fill his big shoes and run the shop on their own. Oldest daughter Traci said “it was Ron’s longtime dream of owning and running a store. After long consideration, we felt it was important to keep Vintage Depot open in his honor.” Middle daughter (and often cited as the favorite), Sheri, is “excited to open the store again. It’s always great to spend time with family and the shoppers.” Youngest daughter, Lori, is having fun learning the family business and said “donating proceeds to cancer research felt like the right thing to do.”
Come and support Springfield, Ohio and your local (as well as America’s favorite little) antique shop!

Shoppers often ask for a recommendation on local eateries. And Ron (the owner) has embarrassingly pointed them in the direction of fast food joints on Main Street. Fortunately, Springfield is host to not only the best antiques in the mid-west but also some really tasty local cuisine. We decided to put together a list of places we think best represents Springfield, Ohio:
Best described as a “local treasure” and we couldn’t agree more. The food here is great and the prices are well fitting for what you receive; we can promise you won’t leave here unsatisfied. Along side their food items, Mike and Rosey’s carries a wide selection of wine and beer, which go wonderfully with the warm atmosphere they provide. Located only a short drive from the shop at 330 W. McCreight Ave, we recommend Mike & Rosey’s to anyone looking for an old school deli dining experience.
If you’re looking to relax from your day of antiquing or you’re just taking your family out for a good meal, we recommend O’Connor’s Irish Pub. O’Connor’s is the place to go when you’re looking for some steak, burgers, and wings, all at very reasonable prices. O’connor’s has a full bar and a brand new location on the north side of Springfield ( 2200 N. Limestone St ).
Schuler’s Bakery has been one of Springfield’s hidden gems since 1937, when they introduced us to some of the best donuts found in the state. Their donuts are made fresh daily with no added preservatives. They have three locations (457 E Main St., 1911 S Limestone St., and 2968 Derr Rd) which are located conveniently on all sides of the city. Schuler’s Bakery is the perfect place to grab some sweets along your antiquing adventure.

We’re supporting the Buckeyes with a Sugar Bowl Sale. On Friday, January 2 all shoppers will get 10% off for every OSU touchdown. That’s right…every touchdown gets you an extra 10% off your purchase. This is uncapped and Ron (the owner) isn’t very happy about this sale. He’s tried to pull a fast one on us. Like bringing in a bunch of vintage sugar bowls and saying that’s the limit of the sale. He joked and said if OSU scores more than five touchdowns that he won’t open the store. He even tried to change the sign at the last minute and put 5% off.
He fought us on this. But we won!
So fear not vintage lovers and deal seekers. We’re sticking with the game plan. You will get 10% off for every touchdown. We hope the Buckeyes put up six touchdowns, trounce the Tide, roll into the National Championship, and everyone gets 60% off their purchase. Ron is hoping they win 3-0. Regardless, he’ll be glued to the TV Friday night. Will you?
