If you're shoppin' or sellin' at Flea in the Field...

Here's some info for Flea in the Field participants. If you're a seller, load-in begins around 6:30 the morning of the 30th. If you've reserved a spot, then there are a few perks you can expect when you arrive. First things first, the hot coffee will be a brewin'. You're welcome to use the west gate (there will be a sign that says Vendor Registration). This entrance is specifically for the reserved vendors. You can pull your car or truck very close to your space for load-in. If you've requested a certain space, then your name will be on the pin flag within the space. If you did not specify, then you can just choose from any of the other booths with pin flags. Don't forget to pick up your goody bag! Sellers in the unreserved section can go to the east gate (where the OPEN flag is) and check-in at the admission tent. Here you'll need to provide your name and if you're selling as a business, your tax number. Pay your $10 and then hit the ground runnin'! Available spaces have pin flags within the space with booth numbers. Once you've chosen your space, then please pull the pin flag so others know that it's not available. The corners of the spaces have been marked with orange paint. Please respect others and don't spread out beyond your allotted space. There are two fields with booth spaces laid out. You can choose either field. Folks selling from trailers can back into one of several spaces along the east side of the flower barn (formerly the greenhouse). You'll need to unhook your car or truck and move it to the parking area, but you're welcome to sell right off your trailer. These spaces are a little wider to accommodate foot traffic around the trailer.

If you're a shopper, then come on out and bring some friends! There's going to be a wide variety of items for sale, just like an old time country flea market. Half the fun is not knowing what to expect! The Guava Tree Food Truck will be serving yummy lunches, so bring an empty tummy. A word of warning, most of the tiny little farm is quite flat, but like any piece of land, there are always slight dips and occasional holes, so please be aware.
