The Lake Junaluska Flea Market will take place on Saturday, June 12, at the Nanci Weldon Memorial Gym at Lake Junaluska from 8-11:30 am. Special early bird shopping is available from 7:30-8 a.m. for $5 cash. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The flea market features wonderful items for people of all ages and one-of-a-kind treasures found nowhere else, said Judy LaFountaine, co-chair of the flea market. Areas of the flea market include furniture, plants, arts and crafts, women’s clothing, luggage, electronics, kitchen items, linens, toys, games/recreation, home décor, tools, holiday items, books and baked goods.
The event is hosted by The Junaluskans, a volunteer organization made up of people who love Lake Junaluska, and the annual flea market is the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year. Co-chair LaFountaine says that there is great interest and anticipation for this year’s flea market.
“We’ve had over a year of distancing and so many events being cancelled that this year the flea market is a sign of things getting somewhat back to normal,” said LaFountaine. “In addition to helping people find items to enjoy for their homes and raise money for projects around the lake, we are able to pass on the fellowship and sense of community we enjoy here at Lake Junaluska.”
Proceeds from the flea market go toward many projects that are integral to the Lake Junaluska community — maintenance of gardens such as the Rose Walk, Native Garden, Biblical Garden and Inspiration Point, the swan feeding program, the Community Chorus, Christmas decorations at the lake, Lake Junaluska cleanup programs, sponsorship of Clothes to Kids, and the monthly book review program.
Masks and social distancing are encouraged for the flea market. For the safety and comfort of shoppers, dogs other than service animals are not allowed.
