2021 Flea Market Cancelled
2021 Fall Train Show Still On
2022 Flea Market Date Set
New Summer Sales Event!

The 2021 Flea Market is cancelled. We were unable to be assured that the event would be allowed as planned without violating State of Ohio capacity rules. We are still looking forward to having the Fall Train Show on October 9 and 10; if the virus permits, this show will be bigger and better than ever. And, arrangements are already in place for the 2022 Flea Market to be held on March 12, 2022.

Per attached flyer, we're excited to announce we're conducting a smaller sales-oriented event this summer on Sat., July 17 - more details to follow. Thank you all for your patience and cooperation. See attached for elaboration on the Flea Market decision.
