Smith County Indoor Flea Market coming to South Carthage

Just want to quash any rumors that appear to be flying around. This flea market does NOT involve anyone who is, or has been, already involved in a similar enterprise. The building is owned by a popular local who owns and operates another very successful business in Carthage, and she has asked me to manage the flea market. So don't be misled if someone tells you that 'so and so' is doing this, because he/she/they ARE NOT. I am sure you will find this new venture to be what hasn't been before. Please stop in and check us out. Thank you.  (Apr 18, 2012 | post #25)

Appreciate your suggestion. I have been very careful in making sure my i's are dotted and t's are crossed. Have checked with ALL officials on what is required. The food vendor we are bringing in is already licensed. Thank you.  (Apr 18, 2012 | post #24)

The following will NOT be allowed. No alcohol or tobacco products. No firearms or ammo. Accessories (scopes, holsters, etc.) will be allowed. The above items are prohibited because I'm not going to deal with the ATF. No 'adult' oriented material. This WILL be a family atmosphere.  (Apr 18, 2012 | post #22)

It is in the building just past (west) of the carpet store, right next door to it. There's a big covered entrance, used to be an antiques store which the sign still says. DIRECTLY across from Sav-Way. Can't miss it. Hope you'll stop by and check us out.  (Apr 18, 2012 | post #21)

About anything you can imagine. Clothing, home made deserts, coins, antiques, collectables, home made crafts, you name it and you can generally find it. You might find knife collections, dolls, dinneware, birdhouses, electronics, the list is literally endless. Plus, generally you are supporting the LOCAL economy.  (Apr 18, 2012 | post #20)

Thank you. Years ago, I was in charge of a 300 acre horse racing track. During the times we were 'dark' (winter/didn't race), we held a flea market in the downstairs grandstands, with over 425 vendors, so it's not my first time down this road. I don't really know about previous attempts, I only know how we are going to approach it. It's going to be CLEAN, a family type atmosphere, we are striving to get a good variety of vendors, and most important, we want both the vendors and the customers to want to come in. I think the location is excellent, the building is perfect for this type of enterprise, and the interest is extremely high. During the difficult economic times, it just makes sense that it should prove popular. I know MANY people go over to Cookeville for that flea market. As long as we hold up our end, I think people will check us out first, before driving fifty/sixty miles round trip. Hope you'll visit when we're up and running...Thanks.  (Apr 18, 2012 | post #17)

Yes, we are opening an indoor flea market in the building directly across from Todd's Sav-Way in South Carthage, right on 70N (Cookeville Highway). It's about 3/4's of a mile just west of the Highway 70N and 25 Interchange, just down on the right. On the CarthageForum, there are two different 'threads' devoted to this. Vendors supply their own tables, etc. We supply the building, electricity, public restrooms. It will be open either the last weekend of this month or first weekend of May. I'll know more in about three or four days. We will be open Thur., Friday, and Saturday from 8am until either 5 or 6pm. I need to receive the final amount for our liability insurance but we are going to try to bring this in for around $ 55/60 for the three day weekend. Vendors will have the choice of one weekend, the whole month, or whatever might work for them. I already have committments just since yesterday afternoon when this became 'official'. This will be a clean family atmosphere. From the inquiries/committm ents I've received, there will be an excellent choice of 'goods' to check out. We will have a designated area for produce. Have a guy coming who makes chairs and bathroom sinks out of old whiskey barrels. You may email me at: smithcofleamarket@ aol.com for any questions or further information. Thank you for you interest. Don't hesitate to contact me. We'll do everything we can to accomodate you.  (Apr 17, 2012 | post #2)

Don't know which building you're talking about. This building is located DIRECTLY across from Todd's Sav-Way grocery store, just past and next door to the carpet store. It's kind of a beigish brown building. There is a post on golsn.com that shows a picture of it. It was previously an antique store. It says xxxxxxxxxx Antiques on the sign on the side of the covered entrance up at the top. There are two main 'glass' entrances at the front of the building.  (Apr 17, 2012 | post #15)
