Free Space Rental for Yard Sale Items

2015 marks the new Flea Market selling year.  The January and February Markets can be quite cool but in Mississippi, we get those 65 and 70 degree days and it makes for some really good weekends.

This winter and into the Spring of 2015, we will be promoting our new Carport sale area.  By downloading and printing a $5.00 coupon, the space will be free of charge, certain rules and regulations do apply.  This new area is to help local residents have a place to bring their yard sale items without having to pay high rent charges up and down the Highway and also give them access to the large crowds of First Monday.  It's a win-win for everybody this fall so make plans to clean out the attic or the shop and bring those previously used items to First Monday for the Largest Yard Sale in North Mississippi.

More details on the Carport/Yard Sale page. Let's make October 4th and 5th. The largest yard sale in North Mississippi.

New Era for First Monday

After building up and managing First Monday since 1974 with his wife, Betty, and children, Wayne Windham passed away this last November 15, 2014.  To build this market up was no small feat and it was certainly not done in a day or two.  We started with just 2 rows and about 30 dealers back then.  Adding water, electric, and gravel to each section as the market grew, by the mid-90's we had over 1200 spots and about 600 permanent dealers.    In 1989 we added the Trader's Inn Restaurant to provide our customers and dealers a place to sit down and enjoy a home cooked meal at a reasonable price.  Since the late-90's, the market has slowed scaled down to its current size of 600 spots and 250 permanent dealers.  Currently the market is managed by Keith and Cheryl Thurmond and Jerry and Allison Windham.  With our goal to restore FM to its fullest potential; we are making changes to the marketing and to the grounds layout.  We are committed to evolve our Market with the preferences of the customers and to find new and creative ways to better serve those customers.  First Monday has been around for over a 120 years and I'm sure it will be here 120 more.  If you've never been to First Monday, come check us out; if you remember coming a youngster, bring your youngsters and continue this time honored tradition of buying selling and trading.

First Monday started in July 1893 and has happened every month since, rain or shine, sleet or snow.  We like to say you can find anything at First Monday, from antiques to "as seen on TV", pots and pans to designer clothes, pedigree puppies to black & tan hounds, Bar B Que to Gyro Sandwiches and everything in between.  Its a great atmosphere to leisurely walk around and enjoy the sights and sounds of days gone past, where the streets bustled with activity, people shopping, sharing stories, snacking on a hot dog, finding odd items, comparing prices and of course good old fashioned "Haggling." A man once said he came to First Monday one time with a pocket knife and 2 dollars, he left with a shotgun and good horse.  First Monday started as a day set aside once a month for people to come together and trade their wares with others.  Bartering has always been one of the bed rock commerce activities of the Americas.  We hope you can join us sometime, either as a vendor or a shopper and experience the fellowship of doing business with friends and neighbors.

We can't promise that you find everything you are looking for, but we can promise you will find things you've never seen before.  Come join the Fun!!!!
