The Junaluskans Flea Market will take place from 8-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, at the Nanci Weldon Memorial Gym. Special early bird shopping is available from 7:30-8 a.m. for a $5 fee. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Junaluskans are a volunteer organization made up of people who love Lake Junaluska, and the annual flea market is their largest fundraising event of the year. Find one of a kind treasures for sale on market day include arts and crafts, furniture, women’s clothing, electronics, kitchen items, plants, toys, games/recreation, home decor and baked goods.
Proceeds from the flea market go toward many projects that are integral to the Lake Junaluska community — maintenance of the gardens, including the Rose Walk, the Native Garden, the Biblical Garden and Inspiration Point; the swan feeding program; the Community Chorus; Christmas decorations at the lake; Lake Junaluska cleanup programs; sponsoring Clothes to Kids; and the monthly book review program.
Judy LaFountaine, co-chair of the event, said the flea market is fun for all ages as well as an opportunity for the community to come together.
“There is a little bit of something for everyone – furniture, books, coffee, toys, homemade cakes and plants,” said LaFountaine. She said the event is a time to pass along treasures for someone else to enjoy and raise money for projects around the lake, “but the fellowship we share far and above exceeds any monetary value.”
For the safety and comfort of shoppers, dogs other than service animals are not allowed.
