September 13, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Coming September 13, 2014…
The 6th Annual Historic Blountville Flea Market and Yard Sale!
Get ready for the 6th Annual Historic Blountville Flea Market and Yard Sale coming to downtown Blountville on September 13, 2014! Sullivan County is rapidly gearing up for this year’s festive occasion which will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in downtown Blountville as vendors from across the region gather to make this one of Sullivan County’s largest events! Sure to be a bargain-hunter’s paradise and fun for the entire family!
The Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism has already received an overwhelming response from vendors who are signing up for the event. Last year’s event drew over 350 vendors. The event has drawn from 6,000 to 10,000 visitors annually.
Vendors include area churches, businesses, non-profit organizations, commercial vendors and private individuals from around the region. Visitors will enjoy a wide array of arts, crafts, antiques, garage sale items and other items. Specialty food vendors will include pulled pork barbeque, hot dogs, hamburgers, blooming onions, polish sausage, soup beans and cornbread, kettlecorn, funnel cakes, deep fried oreos, snow-cones, fresh-squeezed lemonade and more. Numerous area businesses, churches and non-profit organizations are participating and will be giving away free items and discount coupons on a first-come, first-serve basis.
MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC!
Music and special performances for the event will be provided by The Scat Cats/Wells Brothers and The Nomadz.
The Scat Cats/Wells Brothers are a “get-up-and-dance band” performing all genres of music from the 60s, 70s and more! A rock-and-soul group, the band has recorded singles with Spot Records, Sun Dance Records and Columbia Records. The group performs songs made famous by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, the Temptations, James Brown and Sam & Dave.
The Nomadz are a Blountville-based band widely known across the U.S. for its versatility. Comprised of five musicians and vocalists, the ensemble has been compared to the Doobies and Grateful Dead, but with an Appalachian blues influence of Goose Creek or the Metro Blues Allstars. Headed up by Jim Graybeal, Sonny Leonard, Adam Graybeal, Jason Malone and Travis Arend, the group will delight buyers and sellers alike with some of that 50s-60s rock-and-roll!
