>> Our annual flea market is this Saturday, April 2nd. We arrive at 5 AM.
Since there are no empty stores, Don Avandolio will set up his fly fishing display in our store.
As always, we ask that you take only one space. From the amount of calls, many people will be here.
This event is for fisherman and women – and not for vendors.
We have lots of line to spin on reels purchased at the flea market at a reasonable price.
