Thanks for support of flea market

— — Thank you for making the chamber’s 3rd Annual Community Flea Market on May 17 a huge success.  We had over 25 participating vendor spaces and enjoyed reaping the benefits of having a good time. I also can’t say enough for Travis Hackworth and Vickie England’s organizational skills and getting top dollar from all the donated items the chamber had to sale. Walmart was extremely generous to the chamber and has agreed to give us the opportunity to continue our success next year. Mark your calendar for the Fourth Annual Community Flea Market, Saturday, May 16, 2015, at Walmart and if you are interested in receiving information on future community market’s the chamber will host please call 276-963-3385 or email ( your information to the Richlands Area Chamber of Commerce.
