Booths will be located both indoors and outdoors. The flea market and craft fair will be held rain or shine. All booths will be moved indoors in the case of inclement weather.

Most vendors will offer their own shopping bags at this affordable event, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own tote bags, rolling carts or wagons to transport goods.

The second event in June will also host a fundraiser for Bo’s Heavenly Clubhouse, a local organization that helps families deal with the grief and loss of a child. Attendees on June 30 will be helping families locally and all over the country, as funds will be raised for Bo’s Heavenly Clubhouse and the families that the organization supports.
