Flea markets everywhere have been buzzing with life from different events, festivals and happenings throughout the summer. Families on vacation are visiting local fleas to snag some unique souvenirs to bring home and make their own. As fun as the summer events are, the fall brings additional zest with the start of the season’s fairs and festivals
The Merchandiser has seen a lot of great events going on lately, but not everything is good news. For those who don’t know, Cooks Flea Market in Winston-Salem, NC had a building catch fire this summer and some vendors lost some, if not most of their merchandise. You can make a donation to the vendors at the market at https://squareup.com/store/NFMA2019Conference and the National Flea Market Association will match donations up to $5,000.
In other news, the locally made television reality-comedy series “Flea Market Fanatics,” filmed at Rogers Community Auction and Flea Market, is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The Vindicator reported that the first-season episodes include guest appearances by former NFL great Larry Csonka, WQED-Pittsburgh film producer Rick Sebak, comedian Jess Faulstich, artist Gail Trunick, singer-songwriter Candace Campana, Chicken Boy Braydon Bowyer, Judeye the hula-hoop girl among others.
As always, we love to hear from markets and about events that are going on, so feel free to send us your news and we can spread the word on FleaMarketZone.com.
