And.....the countdown begins for the WildHare FleaMarket.....
Thursday night.....measure the spaces and load in the tables for the vendors.
Friday 7:00 AM we swing open the doors and the vendors start moving in all of their goods! We spend the whole day there and get to go home and power sleep for a few hours.
Saturday 9:00 AM we open the doors and let the Trophy Hunt begin. Close at 5:00 PM after a great day of selling, chatting, eating.....and having some big fun.
Sunday 10:00 AM we open the doors for the last day.....looking forward to another good day. We close at 4:00 to the public. Dealers start packing up the few things that they didn't sell and head for home.....Lots call Pocatello home and they don't have far to go.....others from Blackfoot..Rupert....and parts beyond.....Boise.....Ogden....Salt Lake City....it is quite the effort to get here and do the show....
Make sure that you find the time to come to this premier sale of antiques, collectibles, and other worldly goods! It is a treasure hunt. There is something for everyone from the novice to the expert collector.
As always....thanks for your support. I appreciate each and every one of you......

Well.....once again I have gone ahead and wasted another perfectly good two weeks..........and now, The WildHare FleaMarket is just two weeks from this weekend. Saturday March 17th from 9 - 5 and Sunday March 18th 10 - 4.
We are back at the Bannock County Fairgrounds here in Pocatello Idaho. Look for many of the local antique dealers and collectors selling their wares at this event. They offer almost anything that you can think of.
Treasures abound. There is something for everyone from the expert collector to the novice.
There are many benefits to fleamarket shopping. I hold to the belief that buying used is the ultimate in the mantra. "Reduce, Reuse, Recylce."
My hope continues to be to create an event that will become popular with not just the locals, but will encourage shoppers and dealers from other areas to make Pocatello a destination.
