United Flea Markets, owner of the Mile High Flea Market in Denver, CO, the Flamingo Island Flea Market in Bonita Springs, FL, and the T&W Flea Market in Pensacola, FL have announced that the company has acquired the Awesome Flea Market in Shepherdsville, KY. The Awesome Flea Market is famed for its mix of eclectic retailers and local food vendors, as well as owning and operating the Awesome Lazy River water park. The Awesome Flea Market has welcomed buyers and sellers from all over Kentucky and the surrounding states for 22 years.
Adding the Awesome Flea Market to the United Flea Markets portfolio expands the company’s long-term strategy to grow its nationwide presence while helping individual markets further the strength of their business and create a rewarding experience for vendors and buyers alike.
“As owners and operators we have a deep understanding of the flea market business and the ever-changing needs and desires of both buyers and sellers,” says Rob Sieban, United Flea Market’s president and CEO, and chairman of the National Flea Market Association. “We continue to seek out well-run flea markets, like the Awesome Flea Market and Lazy River, in which to invest to help bolster our national footprint while respecting and preserving the culture, integrity and community aspect of each.”
According to the National Flea Market Association there are more than 1,100 flea markets that are visited by more than 150 million customers each year, totaling more than $30 billion in annual sales.
