Second Saturdays in Hinton is set to hold their annual flea market on April 17 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The event will take place at the Freight Depot at 508 Commercial Street, Hinton.
According to event coordinator Amy Richmond, there will be 30 vendors inside and 10 outside. Normally, all vendors would be inside but with concerns and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they had to reduce the number. To ensure there would be as many vendors as possible, the decision was made to allow some to set up outside on the deck area.
Richmond also said everyone is welcome and that, unlike previous years, there is no fee to enter the sale. She did add a reminder that anyone in attendance is asked to wear a mask.
Each of the vendors will have unique items for sale. Some will consist of direct sales representatives for companies such as Avon, Mary Kay, Scentsy. Others will be handmade food and items. This includes companies such as Beautiful Bee, Moon Struck Maple and LA Rustic woodworking.
In addition to all of this, the Summers County Humane Society will be set up with warm cinnamon rolls, coffee and water. According to Richmond, they always have free cat and dog food to give away.
Another booth to check out is the American Legion who will be set up on behalf of Veterans and Veteran Services. Lucky Rivers Cafe & Catering, one of Hinton’s newer businesses, will also be in attendance.
There will also be vendors for patrons who prefer the traditional flea market wares such as candles, dishes, paintings and sheets. Overall, the event can act as a treasure hunt for all who attend. Patrons can find items for themselves, their furry companions or as gifts for someone special.
