Visitors to Oklahoma City have the unique opportunity to experience an Oklahoma tradition and one of Oklahoma’s most unique events - An Affair of the Heart. This unique marketplace is brought to life during a three-day event beginning Friday, October 29 and continuing through Sunday. The marketplace features a wide array of American Country, Southwest, Contemporary and Victorian arts, crafts, antiques, collectibles and gifts. Visitors consider it the ultimate shopping spree!
An “Affair of the Heart, Inc.” began as a dream of eight Oklahoma women who were frequent exhibitors in arts and crafts shows. They had discussed what was good and what could have been better about each show. After much thought and prayerful consideration, they decided to create their own show. It would be so special and unique that it would attract artisans, craftsman and craft lovers from near and far across the land!
An Affair of the Heart began in 1985 when the first show opened to the public offering the most outstanding arts and crafts in the country to Oklahoma City area residents and visitors. At that time, the show featured sixty-five exhibitors with 850 enthusiastic people in attendance. Exhibitors in ever increasing numbers gathered to display their unique offerings. Thousands of excited visitors came to browse, shop and take home their special discoveries from an outstanding array of quality fine arts, crafts, antiques, collectibles, and gift items.
Today, this nationally acclaimed event has grown to 7 buildings at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds, housing over 850 booths and welcomes over 75,000 visitors. Still there is never enough time to cover these miles of walking, eating and shopping.
Exhibitors for the show come from a 40 state area to sell their merchandise. Quality exhibitors present some of the finest crafts, antiques, collectibles, fine art and gift items in the southwest. The vast array of products creates an incredible shopping experience for everyone attending this 3-day event.
The “Affair” has been named several times “Best of 200” by the Sunshine Artist Magazine, a national craft trade publication. The co-founders believe their commitment of the business to God is the foundation of the shows success
The excitement of “An Affair of the Heart” is contagious. Smiles abound as visitors to the show find an incredible array of accessories and gift items. There’s just so much of what you want and what you love, all at one event! It’s the hunt that’s so exciting!
