A fun opportunity for young and old alike!
Great music, good food, and a bargain-hunter’s delight!
Looking for a great time? Gotcha covered! Mark your calendars for Sat., Oct. 3, as over 200 vendors have already registered for the Historic Blountville Flea Market and Yard Sale! Vendors include area churches, businesses, non-profit organizations, commercial vendors and private individuals from around the region. Sure to be a bargain-hunter’s delight and fun for the entire family!
Music will be provided by the Nomadz, a Blountville-based band noted across the U.S. for its versatility. Comprised of five musicians and vocalists, the ensemble has been compared to the Doobies and Grateful Dead, but with an Appalachian blues influence of Goose Creek or the Metro Blues Allstars. Headed up by Jim Graybeal, Sonny Leonard, Adam Graybeal, Jason Malone and Travis Arend, the group will delight buyers and sellers alike with some of that 50s-60s rock-and- roll!
A wide array of food will include hot dogs, soup beans and cornbread, funnel cakes, fried oreos, cakes, cookies, homemade breads and more provided by the Blountville Ruritan and other area vendors. Pizza-Plus will be offering specially discounted coupons for pizza. Kids will enjoy face-painting, pony rides and more!
Blountville native, Heather Pugh, will appear among 200 local vendors, artisans
