i agree the place is a disgrace!they should clean it up, if they want a consignment shop there are plenty of empty bldgs in pennington.we have a nice little town we dont need a junk pile in the middle of it.

The tax office next door owns it I guess it's a way for them to make some extra money since the car wash closed.

No reason to complain now...
Winter will be here soon and the East End Flea Market will be gone.

I understand why several of you are comparing it to a landfill; however, I see nothing too horrid about it. Every summer there are numerous yard sales scattered around town every day; the Parsons took advantage of the fact they had an area next to them for sale and knew they could rent out those spots to people who aren't lucky enough to live on mainstreet or even in town so that those people could try to get rid of their unwanted items.

You call it landfill; I call it a money making opportunity!

They purchased the property. The deed that states their name at the bottom gave them the OK to do as they pleased with it.

If you don't like the way it looks stop and buy all their stuff they have for sale then it will be gone and you will not have to look at it.

I drive through on a daily basis and it doesn't bother me.

is it just me or does the "Flea Market" in our old car wash make the town look really bad? I really think they should make them get rid of all that junk or at least tell them to get a building to do that in. It looks like a trash dump.
What is it to you? You live in Dryden. Why don't you go and buy it from the people and put your money where your big mouth is. Bet you live in a trash dump. The people that own the land there are good pepole. It is people like you that really make a town look bad. May God bless you this giving season.

And just what have you done for Lee County?

If it is nasty you did the pooping. Merry Christmas. You Pepole would talk about Jesus Christ. Don't you have anything better to do? And who died and made you Judge? If you want to know anything about the East End Flea Market or who ownes it call Willie Rodgers.

Do you not have eyes or do you care? The Parsons Lady rents to people. She is trying to clean the place up. It has been a dump for years.She has cleaned up after that car wash ever since she has had her business there. They do not do consignment. They rent to people who used to be yard sale people. The town will not let them sale on the side of the road any more. To many people this is a way of having extra money for food, or a electric bill, clothes for the kids. You people that don't have anything better to do but run people down wouldn't know anything about that. You have so much money to spare and never been where some of these people are.. come on get a life. NO ONE DIED AND MADE YOU JUDGE.

You are right. If you've got the money you can get anything done, just ask the town of Pennington Gap. And I wan't to know why do all you talk about people and hide your name and address? would you be afraid to let people know who you are? Can't hide from God.

That place is a dump. If they want to sell their yardsale stuff they should go to the Leeman field instead of downtown. What if a shopper were to fall there, who pays those bills?

Think that is a question for the owner. I am sure they have something. Are you thinking about falling or something?

I hope they close down that eyesore! I heard from a seller there that when a person makes good money, the woman asks for more rent than the amount agreed. I hate that visitors in Lee have to see that.

Yes you are a very concerned citizen all right. So concerned that you will get on this gossip suite and spill your lieing heart out. Don't you people have anything better to do. At least if you are gonna talk about everybody have the brass or gutts to put your real name on here not that it would make any difference because it takes a very low person to do what you do.. Honey I just hate to make your eyes sore but here goes .... THE LAND BELONGS TO ME !!!!!and its not going anywhere it will be here when most of you people are gone. So get over it and DO HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU. Isn't good to have money and or good credit. hehehehehe

Nobody is gonna close the place down. When you own it and you are not brakeing no laws then nobody is gonna close you down.. and as far as charging rents, Very few people have paid me rents. I can face you with your liar. The Questiion is are you big enough to face me with your liar?????
