Stopped in at the Re-Flea market this morning. There was a good crowd. A news team from NBC Channel 25 out of Hagerstown was on hand and will broadcast the event on Sunday.  The Re-Flea will be held on several other Saturdays this year. See their website for details:

 There were both retail vendors and private tables in the yard sale style.

Tamara Day holds "Fatty Pat," an 8 week old Maltese puppy (for sale). Tamara was selling Saddle Art.
Also for sale at her booth were the pen and ink drawings of Deborah Plank.

Martha Ward sits at her "3 Generations" booth. It consisted of items for sale
from her mother, herself, and her son. 
Harriet Oloro, a native of Uganda, stands behind her booth of batik
prints that she designs and creates.
Nicole Robinson from the Green Homes Challenge was on hand to
talk to participants about the county government's Green Homes initiative.

to register to sell your great old stuff at the RE-Flea. Reserving now for the entire season. Laurie has signed her contracts with the fairgrounds and is looking for quality vendors for the indoor spaces, through the year, and outdoors, for downsizers, pickers, and short term sellers. The RE-Flea is about growing micro-business in the region; providing a venue for the wanna be retailers, the quality crafters and part time antiques dealers to grow their business, test their products and develop their brands.
