January 16th is the next scheduled Renninger's Antique Extravaganza. Over 1400 dealers and 40,000 shoppers are expected to attend this event in Mount Dora. Here is the itinerary:
The action starts at 8:00 AM Friday morning with two hours of shopping
our inside dealers. Many have saved special merchandise just for the
Extravaganza, so there are fresh treasures to be found.
At precisely 10:00 AM, our outside dealers open up. Some of our shoppers
make a mad dash to find their favorite dealers. Others set a more leisurely
pace, saving themselves for the long haul. Still others continue shopping
inside, choosing to do the 1,000+ outside dealers later.
If the number of packages being carried is any indication, all three groups
seem to be successful!
There is plenty of parking! But, our regular visitors know to arrive fairly
early to get the best spot. Many have arranged to stay in a local motel or
Bed & Breakfast, knowing they'll want to spend more than just one day here.
Most folks alternate between the outside and inside dealers -- enjoying the
fresh air and sunshine, and trekking back and forth to their cars with
packages; then popping into our air-conditioned buildings to cool off and
discover still more treasures.
Make your plans to attend now, there are still a few rooms left in the local inns.
