Reservations & Booth Payment
Reservations are made month by month. New reservations for the next market are not accepted until one week after the conclusion of the Flea Market. This allows us to assign permanent spaces as well as waiting list requests. All Permanent Dealers must make their reservation for the following month prior to Monday following the Market at 4:30 pm CST. If you do not have a permanent space and wish to set up for the next Market, we will be glad to reserve the booth you were in provided that it is not someone’s permanent space. If the booth belongs to someone on a permanent basis, we will place you on our waiting list and get you as close to your request as possible. Dealers with more seniority will be given priority on the waiting list. You will be notified with a reservation notice that must be paid within 5 business days or the reservation will be cancelled.
All booths must be prepaid. Checks should be made out to Tennessee State Fair Flea Market
