Sign of the times: Free flea market space for federal workers

Press Release:

United Flea Markets, owner of the largest portfolio of flea markets in the country, announced today that it is offering free selling space at all 10 of its nationwide markets to furloughed workers during the government shutdown.

In Florida, this includes the Flamingo Island Flea Market in Bonita Springs, T&W Flea Market in Pensacola, and the Ramona Flea Market in Jacksonville.

The company hopes this will provide those looking to sell goods to earn money with a larger and more robust shopping audience than they might find if hosting a garage sale or similar event. More specific information including registration details can be found on each market’s Facebook page:
