Showcase your wares in Leechburg

The Allegheny-Kiski Valley Historical Society holds a monthly Flea-tique flea market in Tarentum on the grounds of the Tour-Ed Mine and Museum. The flea market is held on the third Sunday of each month, with the next one scheduled to take place on June 27 beginning at 7:00 am. Admission is $3 for each car.

The Flea-tique is an antique and collectible flea market. Vendors can rent space for $25 per week or $125 for the year. Food vendors are also welcome but what they sell must be pre-approved by the organizers. Proceeds go to support the Heritage Museum and the Tour-Ed Mine Foundation. This is the 31st year that the Flea-tique has operated and it is known for providing quality antiques and collectibles.

Local businesses specializing in antiques and collectibles would be wise to take part in this event. It will highlight what they have to offer and might possibly get them a few extra sales. Leechburg printing companies can help by providing banner printing services. Hanging a banner over a table will draw people to that area and will most likely result in more sales. Banners also help to make the area more attractive to passers-by.

Those who visit the Flea-tique can also visit the Tour-Ed mine; it is open from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm on Sundays. The tour lets people experience how it must have felt to be a coal miner in 1850s and the museum also contains a replica of a typical coal miner’s home during that era.
