Boardman Street, Youngstown 44503 on the NEW dates of Sat., Dec. 2nd (9A-3P) & Sun., Dec. 3rd (11A-4P). Yassssss!

HOLIDAY FLEA – FAQ’S
WHERE WILL HOLIDAY FLEA OCCUR?
Great question! We are utilizing our own, newly purchased space, located at 365 E. Boardman Street, 44503. If you’ve been before, then you are familiar with the Bldg. Please note: we WILL be in a different part of the Bldg. We will use the larger portion of our indoor space (this not the part of our bldg. where it has been all Spring/Summer). That is NEW info. Make sure you understand it.
OK, WHAT ARE THE MARKET SPECIFICS?
Very much the same as our previous #HolidayFlea participation guidelines. Begin by carefully choosing one or both days, to participate. Know that you can ONLY bring one (1) 8ft. table, two chairs (or the equivalent display/setup items that fit within that equal amount of allocated space). Understand that there is no wifi, no access to electric. Please bring your Holiday A-game (plus some cool holiday decorations – we’re going to need them). Applicable COVID rules will be enforced ( masks, social distancing, hand-sanitizer, disinfecting spaces etc.) 2023 DATES: Sat., December 2nd (9A-3P) and Sun., December 3rd (11A-4P). LOCATION: 365 E. Boardman Street, Youngstown, 44503.
Side Note / Separate Market:We are hosting a “Special Edition” of the Market called #FleaOnPhelps (Phelps Street is downtown Youngstown, and a new pedestrian only path around the bars/restaurants). Details are: 75 vendors max, outdoors, 4P-8P, on Fri., Dec. 1st, 2023. If interested, check the box on the application and we’ll share more details.
HOLIDAY FLEA – NEXT STEPS
HOW DO I APPLY?
Great question! First apply. We have opened up the internal application, found below, for you to apply. Second. You MUST acknowledge, via email, that you’ve read the above Flea FAQ’S. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, confirming that you’ve read and understand the FAQS, for your application to be a valid submission. We’ll email back that we’ve got your application and the FAQ confirmation. Consider carefully before submitting your application. Be aware of the stated concerns/challenges. We do NOT want any misunderstandings.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I APPLY?
We will make regular announcements via email/txt msg, to let you know where things stand with the Market and with your participation status. FYI: Help us share the word, as we are making the #HolidayFlea public to the community. We are doing some behind the scenes work to ensure it’s all a go. Please feel free to post now.
Application are open but many spaces are at capacity. Please do NOT miss another market opportunity if this date doesn’t work for you. Once you’ve applied, you then get notice of open Holiday Flea applications (again AFTER you’ve had time to apply). That’s a perk of being a previously approved vendor. Please know that not all who apply will be accepted.Please do NOT emailing us to say you want in, that does NOT hold a spot. You MUST apply.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Let us all pray that everything works in our favor and that we can humbly provide this community with an amazing experience as they safely #ShopTheFlea. This Holiday Flea will be like no other. It is exciting, but it is complicated. There will be no city parade. No tree lighting (happening during this date/timeframe). No assurances, only what we can control. That comes down to how we respond, in and to, this moment. We can make this amazing! We can smile through it all. We can come together as #FleaFamily, rally around our community of Makers, shoppers and supporters and do what we can, with what we have. To whom much is given, much is required. Tis’ the season. Let’s go!!!!
