A building vacated by J.C. Penny will become an indoor flea market in Monett, MO when new owners Jackie and Janice Harris finish converting the space to Find It Again Antiques and Flea Market, hopefully at some point this spring. “The opportunity came up. We thought this was the right time,” Jackie tells Murray Bishoff of the Monett Times. The name, Find It Again, nods to shopping experiences that Janice has had in the past when, on a trip to a flea market, she often found items similar to those she remembered from her childhood.
The couple plans to complete a number of renovations, including the installation of central air conditioning and heating so that the building is comfortable year round. “When I finish the floor plan, we’ll begin renting out booths on a first come, first served basis,” Jackie continues. There will be an area designated for antique furniture in addition to between 80 and 100 four-foot by eight-foot booth spaces throughout the building. The booth rental fee at Find It Again Antiques and Flea Market will be $65 per month, plus a ten percent commission on sold merchandise.
To obtain more information about renting a booth, vendors may contact Jackie by calling his cell phone, 417-489-5056. Find It Again Antiques and Flea Market will be located at 410 East Broadway Street, Monett, MO 65708.
