- For years, the Swap Meet had been successful at the Hardware Store area. Many people would come to town just for the swap meet and some would then go to Fat Belly’s for lunch or have lunch at the store.
- Many of the items sold were not of high value and included even some farm fowl and animals. Most of these vendors receive only a limited amount of money for their wares or livestock. But the Town with Stacy Tebo in charge decided at the 2014 Wild Azalea Festival to Charge each vendor $30.00 (Without prior notice)….and now vendors are no longer showing up because of their fear of another surprise.
- Maybe garden vegetables and fruits could also be sold at the swap meet.
- Many of our citizens loved to shop there, but the Town changed the situation and as far as most of us were concerned this was sponsored by Don Wilson’s Hardware Store. What a Shame!.
