Wear Comfortable Shoes

Extravaganza stretches acres on the hillside of the Renningers property, only a small portion is inside.  This means a lot of walking. There are a lot of dirt isles, so it is recommended to wear closed toe-shoes and there are some slight incline.

Cash is King

Cash is the preferred method of payment and easier when negotiating prices.  Some vendors do offer credit card and check payments, but don't expect it being common practice.   Renningers does offer secured ATMs on the property.

Strollers, Wheelchairs, & Carts

Understand that the Extravaganza event is held in a grassy field making for uneven terrain.  The main road through the field, the Antique Market, Street of Shops, and Open Air Pavilions are paved.  The dirt path isles are oversized and will accommodate wheeled vehicle/carts.

Dogs Visitors

Dogs are welcomed, but there are thousand of attendees and they MUST be restrained on a leash at ALL times. Owners are responsible for any damaged caused to merchandise by their pet and will be respectful by discarding any feces.

Have a Plan

"I'm not sure it will fit" is commonly heard. Plan ahead!  Take pictures and measurements of the spaces/rooms you are wanting to fill.  Just a little planning ahead could be be the difference between snagging that perfect piece or missing out completely.

Have photos on your phone for inspiration found on Pinterest or in magazines, it is a great reminder of the elements your looking to get.

Business Card or Name Card

If you purchase large or heavy items and do not wish to carry them around the show, most vendors will hold them for you.  A good tip is to leave a card with your name and phone number attached to the item.  This makes it easy for the vendor to identify and to contact you if you forget to come back and pick it up.

Items to Bring

A shopping cart or large carry bag, measuring tape (along with your plan), bottled water (we are in Florida), hand wipes because hunting can get dirty, and a fully charged cellphone for posting on social media using #renningersextravaganza #renningersmountdora , and searching for ideas.
