Somebody unfamiliar with Florence may pass it off as just another small Colorado town. But those who’ve spent any time there not only fall in love with the town’s delectable charm, they also come away recognizing the incredible growth Florence is about to experience thanks to its title, “Colorado’s Antique Capital.”
How did it get that title? Florence experienced a boom in the 1880s thanks to the oil industry. But when the industry slowed, people moved away, leaving dozens of historic buildings untouched for decades.
Today, these historic buildings are being filled by antique dealers…so many antique dealers. In fact, along Florence’s Main Street, you’ll find 20—and counting—dealers selling a huge range of unique finds, making for the highest number of antique stores per capita in the state.
Want to check it out for yourself? Come to Florence September 27th and 28th for the biggest antique event of the year—the Junktique Antique Show and Market.
In the past, the Junktique show was a small part of Florence’s Pioneer Days, but this year they are upping the ante by adding 200 booth spaces down Main Street and turning Junktique into Colorado’s premier outdoor antique, vintage show, and flea market event.
At Junktique, vendors line Main Street for two days of bargain hunting and antique shopping. And it’s not just antiques. The show also has vendors of handmade items and fun activities for the kids.
Come find your treasure in Florence, Colorado’s Antique Capital. For more information, visit junktiqueshowandmarket.com.
