The Maple City Flea Market, in Adrian, MI, opened May 3rd and will host its grand opening celebration at the end of June, The Daily Telegram reports. Brian Mulligan and Ada Marvin, Mulligan’s mother-in-law, co-own the market at 1061 S. Main St., operating it along with Mulligan’s wife Deb and Marvin’s husband Dennis.
Maple City Flea Market has 22 vendor booths selling both new merchandise and upscale resale. It will also sell items on consignment. Merchandise will change continually as vendors and consigners bring in new items, and as new vendors come in, according to the Daily Telegram. Shoppers will find merchandise such as collectibles, NASCAR items, CDs and DVDs, handcrafted wares, antiques, purses, artwork, doll furniture, toys, glassware, garden implements and power tools.
Vendors do not need to be on site selling their merchandise. All vendors have to do is rent booth space and tag their items. The price tags all have numbers on them identifying the seller so that the market managers can handle the sales.
People who wish to consign items can do so for 30 days. If the item does not sell, the owner can either pick it up, or lower the price and re-consign it for another 30 days. With both vendors and consigners, the market keeps a percentage of the sale price.
Delivery is offered within Adrian for customers who need an item hauled. There is a charge based on distance for this service.
