Took it upon myself to check it out this afternoon. Omg take your checkbook and take out a loan before you go. Ridiculous. Mostly new stuff and what is used they are proud of. Stick to yard sales if your looking for a bargain. Total waste of time. I stayed literally 20 minutes and five of that was parking.

Funny I didn't think that the flea market was supposed to be a yard sale. Im happy to hear they are bringing this event to Jonesboro and wish them lots of luck. Be much better than driving to the Memphis market .
Thanks for the tip. Can't wait to check it out tomorrow !

My family loved it. It's about time Jonesboro got something like this. And isn't this the first one? I'm thinking it will only get better from here on. We will probably go back again tomorrow, and next month too.

I'm sorry someone was disappointed, it's a market for crafts ,jewelry, shoes, clothing, hair accessories, home decor new and old. It's never been advertised as a flea market. We have a lot of good vendors that have put a lot of time and money in some of their decor, jewelry, food etc. i am happy we finally got a market for unique items here in jonesboro and we don't have to go to Memphis or Little Rock. It was a good start for the first month and we hope you will all come out and grow with us!

I, for one, was pleased with the turnout for opening night.... and by the way, the event is called 'JUNK2JEWELS', meaning it spans from one to the other and all points in between.

For the opening night, on the debut weekend, you can't expect it to be enormous!...there is no doubt it will only grow bigger with each month.

Besides, this is an indoor event and admission is FREE!...so stop complaining!

I have a booth and selling vintage, antiques and gently used items. I have all prices. I have a lot of nice items for $1.00,$2.00,$3.00 and most of my items cost $20 of less.... I will be bringing more things tomorrow to fill up the empty spaces of the items I sold today. So come by and check it out. There are bargins to be found.

I enjoy yard sales and sometimes I buy and sometimes I don't. It a treasure hunt and you hunt until you find the right item for you.

Thanks and awesome Job Jody. I'm very thankful you are doing this. I won't be able to have a booth again for awhile due to my job, but I will be coming buy every month to be a shopper.

The crowd has been non-stop today, so many of us vendors have already booked our spot for next month. This weekend was a trial and error and I see nothing wrong with it. You're inside, out of the elements, and have access to clean restrooms and great parking. (although some have parked in the mud lol)

Why in the world was this judged mean and spam?...looks like someone has a personal grudge against the event.

That was my thought also. It's a great event, and when I was there today, it was packed!

I'd bet the building owners are taking that money (and much more) and using it to pay off the building debt, before they get their socks sued off.

Looks like someone might object to being told to "stop complaining."

I was thrilled to meet a vendor that sells products locally that I've been buying online. Her products are exactly the same as I've been buying and much cheaper. On top of that, no shipping charges. I couldn't be happier!!!!!

Just a thought, but, might she have bought them online, then re-sold them to others, such as yourself? Just saying...
