Emma Dewing, Director at the Beacon Flea Market is excited to announce the flea market’s Spring opening for it’s second season! “The business began as a partnership between my neighbor and myself. We had a shared interest in antiques, junk, and helping build Beacon into a thriving destination city on the Hudson River. After a promising start last year the flea is growing in size and in reputation. This year I am running the flea myself, and am looking forward to building on last years momentum. Originally from London, England, I have been settled in the US for several years, the last 5 years have been here, in Beacon. My interests span antiques, mid century modern design, contemporary art, and maker-made products. Through running the flea market I get to meet and socialize with talented, knowlegable, and lovely people. It is a small market of about 45 vendors, and is a community of like minded people who love the old, quirky, retro, designer and handmade! We all love a good rummage, and the banter is fun and friendly. I always say – bring the family, bring the dog, grab a coffee on Main Street, and come visit with friends and neighbors! Come find your treasure!
