LAKE JUNALUSKA — The annual Lake Junaluska Flea Market is coming Saturday, June 12, with every imaginable item under the sun — furniture, home décor, tools, art, women’s clothing, luggage, electronics, housewares, toys, games/recreation, holiday items, books, baked goods and more.
It will be held from 8-11:30 a.m. at the Nanci Weldon Memorial Gym at Lake Junaluska, with special early bird shopping starting at 7:30 a.m. for $5 cash.
“We’ve had over a year of distancing and so many events being canceled that this year the flea market is a sign of things getting somewhat back to normal,” said Judy LaFountaine, co-chair of the flea market.
The event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for The Junaluskans, a volunteer organization made up of people who love Lake Junaluska.
Proceeds from the flea market go toward projects that are integral to the Lake Junaluska community — maintenance of gardens such as the Rose Walk, Native Garden, Biblical Garden and Inspiration Point, the swan feeding program, the Community Chorus, Christmas decorations at the lake, Lake Junaluska cleanup programs, sponsorship of Clothes to Kids, and more.
“In addition to helping people find items to enjoy for their homes and raise money for projects around the lake, we are able to pass on the fellowship and sense of community we enjoy here at Lake Junaluska,” LaFountaine said.
Masks and social distancing are encouraged for the flea market. For the safety and comfort of shoppers, dogs other than service animals are not allowed.
Lake Junaluska is a place of Christian hospitality where lives are transformed through renewal of soul, mind and body. For more information about Lake Junaluska, visit lakejunaluska.com.
