What does it take to start a flea market...





JUNK...right...

Well, I guess you have t' be a little 'tetched in the head'...right...but that's what's in the works. Sister's has a wonderful yard surrounded by corn and bean fields just itchin' to have crazed shoppers crawlin' all over it. We talked yesterday about starting one up for 4 shows in the summer...are we crazy or do we just love what we do??? We know alot of wonderful dealers that would probably love to partake in our craziness. But now a name needs to be formulated to fit us perfectly...give us some suggestions and let us know of any cautions or should we just throw them to the wind and go for it?

WAAAAY too much fun! I wish I could come! I'm sure you'll come up with a good idea—please share them with us. My fave I've seen is Tumbleweed Cotillion because it conjures up such images...

Be sure to share loads of photos with us! XOX

You definitely should do it! Having the space is a huge plus. Any other events going on this summer you can tie it in with...take advantage of some tourist traffic?

I've put on a number of shows. If you have a specific questions, let me know and I'll try to help.

Best advice would be space rental up front with no refunds after a certain date.

Fun, fun

Oh my, I'd love to come and shop at your flea!! I already see so many things I'd have to have. Coming up with a catchy name sometimes just hits you in the middle of the night when you aren't even thinking of it. Best of luck with your adventures. Thanks again for your well wishes, Theresa

I say "GO FOR IT"


Hubby and I had our flea market grand opening last weekend and it was a huge success!
And lots of fun once all the business stuff was taken care of!

We named our market Green Acres after the old movie with ZaZa Gabor!
That's hubby and I!
He's the country boy and I am the city chick turned farm chick!

I wish you much success! Let me know if I can help with anything!

Hugz, Dolly
