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 maintains the same booth at the Springfield Flea Market since his first show over 35 years ago, has attended The French 500 in Gallipolis for a over decade, and attends The 127 Sale – The World’s Longest Yard Sale every year for seven years and counting.
Ron’s philosophy: the family that antiques together stays together. The antique-bug has 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, and helping shoppers.
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.
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?
Spring is in full swing and Summer is just around the corner! Join us as we host our second Community Yard Sale on Saturday, May 31 from 9am – 3pm.
