The City of Beacon council members recently approved the use of the Henry Street parking lot for the 2014 season, and Beacon’s flea is open. Now in its fourth season, Beacon Flea Market is established in specializing in quality vintage, antique, collectible and hand crafted items.
More than 50 regular and one-time vendors sell a variety of items, including refinished furniture, antiques, vintage purses, mid-century cookware, collectible vinyl, old books, handmade jewelry, and local crafts. Vendors are pre-approved to ensure selling guidelines are met, such as no new or bulk.
Residents who wish to sell gently used home and garden items, and boxes from grandma’s attic are welcome. Vendors are invited to submit photos of items to the website, updated weekly to offer customers a sneak peek of offerings for the upcoming Sunday.
Beacon Flea Market provides free booth space for Beacon schools. Non-profits, such as animal shelters, and Beacon residents who wish to sell items can vend at a discounted rate. In support of the local community the market does not sell food or new items, and visitors are encouraged to check out local cafés, restaurants, and shops.
Located in the Henry Street parking lot behind the Main Street post office, Beacon Flea Market is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on fair weather Sundays, April through November. Admission and street parking are free. Visit beaconflea.com or call 845-202-0094.
