The City of Beacon council members recently approved the use of the Henry St parking lot for the 2014 season, and Beacon’s flea is ready for another fabulous year. 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 re-finished 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. You won’t find socks or sponges at Beacon Flea!
Residents who wish to sell house clean out, gently used home and garden items, and boxes from grandma’s attic are also welcome. From treasures and antique finds, to gently used designer-wear and home décor the market is always fresh and engaging and has something for everyone. Vendors are invited to submit photos of their items to the website, which is updated weekly to offer customers a sneak peek of the 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 clean-out 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 the local cafés, restaurants, and shops.
Located in the Henry Street parking lot behind the Main Street Post Office, Beacon Flea Market is open on fair weather Sundays, April – November, from8am to 3pm; admission and street parking are free.
