JACKSON— Everybody loves to find a great bargain and people search through junk at flea markets to find what some people see as treasure.
Those treasure hunters now have a place close to home to search for that ultimate find, thanks to Jackson 2nd Ward Councilman Ron Queen.
Queen is the proud new owner and operator of a new Jackson business called, “The Jackson Flea Market”.
Queen explained that he has been in the auction business for around 13 years now and he thought that the City of Jackson needed a flea market, which in turn would help the City. He is licensed and bonded as an auctioneer.
“The economy is tight and people need to buy cheap,” stated Queen. “You can buy cheap good used merchandise at the Jackson Flea Market.”
The Jackson Flea Market is located at 2 Morton Street in Jackson (Across from Main Express on 93 and 35) and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday to Sunday.
“One man’s junk is another man’s treasure,” said Queen. “Meaning that some people place great value on things that others ignore or find worthless.”
Some items that will be available on site are: Avon, Scentsy, Gold Canyon candles, Antiques, Paparazzi jewelry and thousand more items.
The Jackson Flea Market offers 10x20 flea market spots, outside spots are $5 and inside spots are available for $100. “Our building inside is heated and we have inside restrooms,” said Queen. “I’m planning on running the Flea Market year around.”
For set up information call Ron Queen at 418-4850. Also to stay up to date on the flea market visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/thejacksonfleamarket.
