After 40 years in business on Sundays, the Mt. Croghan Flea Market in South Carolina is expanding to Saturdays as well, as reported in the Cheraw Chronicle. Now managed by James Taylor, the son of the founder, the market will open June 4 with a slew of other innovations as well. Churches are being encouraged to do fund-raising on Saturdays. A “Music in the Woods” event will be held Saturday afternoons for local musicians. A new tailgate section will let vendors sell out of the back of their trucks and trailers. The market is also being renovated with new benches, bathrooms, and trash cans.
Held under the pecan trees of an estate that has been in the family since Civil War days, the Mt. Croghan Flea Market was founded by antiques trader Carolyn Taylor over 40 years ago. Space rentals range from $5 to $20, some with electricity for an extra $2. For more information, visit the market Web site, call (843) 634-2150, or e-mail email@example.com.
