While we don’t have “a season” (we are open Every Friday All Year Round) we definitely see an uptick in vendors and vendors during these summer months. After a rainy start (if by “start” we mean since around 2015) we have seen a string of absolutely beautiful Fridays.

We suggest you come out for the day and enjoy the early morning with a hot, homemade breakfast, warm and gooey Amish Doughnut or simply pick up some farm fresh fruit from one of our many produce vendors.

Stroll the aisles in the cooler morning hours looking for the best deals and let your treasure hunting take you from grass to gravel and back again. Cool creamy ice cream or shakes, savory treats and numerous sweets abound.

Grab a hot sausage, gyro or beef steak for a hearty lunch and Mason Jar lemonades are always a hit.

As the afternoon wanes the evening auctions gear up with Miscellaneous and Fresh Eggs, Baked Goods, Plants and Produce in two separate 5 p.m. auctions.

Anyone want to hear a story of simple kindness to bring much Christmas cheer?

Have you ever seen disgarded photos And wondered why they were lost?

Last Tuesday I (Tom Deals) attended the monthly auction at the Rogers Auction and flea market
I purchased a small pile of items and loaded them in my van

Later on while unloading I found a box of over 100 photos.. and while I would normally throw them away.. the context of the photos pulled at my heart
It features mainly the same girl.. from her newborn photos.. toddler photos all the way up until graduation.. and her maiden name was written on some of them..
It seemed that she had a great childhood and I hoped that she was healthy and happy still

I couldn’t .. I tried.. but my inner self wouldn’t allow me to just toss them.. I had to try to find this person and return her photos

Well I did a Facebook search of her name and resulted in several people with her name and a profile that had only had 1st name and different last name.. I messaged all of them with a slightly creepy message :
“Hi.. are you from the ____ Ohio area?

I bought items at an auction and contained a box of photos with your name on them… I’d hate to throw them away if they have personal value”

Well I got no replies.. until this morning!

I got a message saying that ____ was her hometown.. and I sent a photo of a child picture asking if it was her.. and asked what get maiden name was as it was the profile with a different name that I decided to messaged..

It was her!

She was very happy.. but I think I was even happier.. I could have just tossed the box full of photos and gone about my life.. but my heart told me to try to find her.. often my heart gets me into trouble.. but not this time. This time I was able to brig Christmas joy to a stranger at no cost but my time

I will be meeting with her brother Friday to pass on the photos

I gave her a challenge.. to pay it forward by doing something special for a stranger.. which she accepted

With her permission in sharing this story.. and photos but blocking out faces other than hers.

These warm (hot!) days make us all want to take to the porch, patio or deck to relax and catch some breezes! Our upcoming Mega Monthly Consignment Auction  is a great source for outdoor furnishings – or furnishings re purposed for summer living! Ask me how many vintage gliders, wicker furnishings and patio sets I’ve purchased for pennies on the original dollar? No, don’t, my husband actually does not know. No need to look in the back of the barn dear. Yes we have always had three complete patio sets, why do you ask?

Check out this inspiring article about some “past prime” 1970’s furniture (the kind that shows up at auctions OFTEN) and see how it was reworked into charming outdoor furniture that won’t blow away in the breeze!

We always enjoy a good “I paid a dollar and sold it for $1,000 story.” While not every “flea market find” is guaranteed to bring you that much joy (and cold hard cash) there are certainly many tales of treasure found at Flea Markets.

Coming to this week’s exciting online auction is one vintage Le Creuset #32 Au Gratin Pan in the distinctive flame shade.

This wide, shallow oval baker excels for oven recipes that call for a crisp topping, such as vegetable gratins, mac & cheese, scalloped potatoes and fruit cobblers. Use it for roasting fish and vegetables and for stovetop cooking as well.

  • Distributes heat slowly and evenly.
  • Sand-colored enamel interior resists staining and chipping and makes it easy to monitor cooking process for less sticking and burning.
  • Made in France.

Le Creuset is “the” name in cooking and baking.

Be sure to leave a bid for this and other new, gently used, and vintage items. (P.S. there are some amazing Mid Century Modern Pieces consigned this week as well!)

Selling today in the Second Tuesday Monthly Consignment Auction.

It’s massive. Easily over 6′ tall. Squirrels perch on top like gargoyles and the drawer pulls are bears.

Pretty sure it leads to Narnia. Take a sword.

What is it? Vintage Blendo Pitcher and drink set, 1950’s.

Where to find it? Online auction located at Rogers Online

Producers: West Virginia Glass Company, Anchor Hocking Glass Corp.
Price range: A complete set (pitcher and six glasses) from the 1960s was recently offered on Etsy for $59.95. Intact gold rims drive the value up as many are worn from years of use.

We would like to thank the many visitors, vendors, community members, and friends who have reached out to us following the fire in one of the open air pavilions at the market in the late hours of Friday, May 19, 2017.

While we can confirm the loss of G Pavilion here at the market, we are grateful to the Negley, New Waterford, East Palestine, West Point, and Lisbon firefighters who contained the fire to G Pavilion. Their dedication and effort in extinguishing and preventing the spread of this fire is very much appreciated.
