An Affair of the Heart coming to Conway Expo Center in June

An Affair of the Heart, Oklahoma’s largest unique marketplace showcasing artisans, crafters and boutiques from across the country, will host its first Arkansas show at the Conway Expo Center in Conway, on Friday, June 26, through Sunday, June 28.

The show will feature more than 150 vendors in more than 200 booths, showcasing their unique and often handmade items including everything from jewelry and upcycle furniture to gourmet foods, home décor, personalized gifts and more. The vendors represent more than 15 states traveling to Conway to sell their goods over three days. The show provides shoppers with a unique opportunity to browse more than 150 pop-up shops from across the nation that sell one-of-a-kind items celebrating the craft, skill, art and style of the vendor.

“The popularity of sites like Pinterest and Etsy have created a renewed interest in locally-made and unique goods,” said Eleanor Blakeman, founding partner. “Shows like An Affair of the Heart offer shoppers a way to view these goods in person while still supporting local and regional talent.”

Show times are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $7 at the door and each ticket is good for all three days. Kids 12 and younger get in free. For more information, to purchase tickets or to see a complete list of vendors, visit
