The giant Sacramento Antique Faire, the monthly marketplace for all things collectible, is staying put - at least for two more months.
Sunday's faire will be held as usual from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. under the freeway at X and 21st streets in midtown Sacramento.
A planned January move to Front Street has been delayed, said marketplace director Marylon Rose. Heavy equipment sitting on that site has yet to be moved.
"A lot of details came up at the last minute," Rose said Friday. "With all the vendors we have, we decided to stay put while we're trying to work this out."
Major renovations are planned for the state-owned lot where the marketplace has called home the second Sunday of each month. That construction is expected to start in March.
The next two events, set for Sunday and Feb. 10, will definitely be at the X Street site, Rose said. Updates will be posted on the faire's website, www.sacantiquefaire.com.
With more than 300 vendors of mostly vintage merchandise, the marketplace attracts almost 5,000 customers each month.
"The business community has been so great," Rose added. "They've been tweeting and calling, spreading the word."
