$20.00 Space Rental per day ($35 for Weekend) for Yard Sale Items

The January and February Markets can be quite cool but every now and again, in Mississippi, we get those sunny 65 and 70 degree days that make for some of the best shopping weekends of the year!

This Spring and Summer of 2020, we will again be promoting our new Carport sale area.  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 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.

  

Rebuilding First Monday Trade Days

First Monday started in July 1893 and has taken place every month since; rain or shine, sleet or snow. It started as a day set aside once a month for people to come together and trade their wares with others. It remains that to this day. We like to say you can find anything at First Monday, from antiques to "as seen on TV" products, to a 100 year old cast iron skillet in need of a little love, to designer clothes, pedigree puppies & black & tan hounds, to finger-licking' barbecue & street Tacos and everything in between. The place has a way about it, a call to yesteryear when things were simpler. When you stop by, you can take a leisurely stroll down the dusty aisles and enjoy the sights and sounds of days gone past, where the streets bustle with activity, people shopping, sharing stories, snacking on a hot dog, finding odd items, comparing prices and, of course, you can always hear some good old fashioned "haggling." It's this interaction between the vendors and their customers that makes First Monday unique to all other Flea Markets in the Mid-South.  It's real people talking and trading with real people.  

Currently the market is managed by Jerry &  Allison Windham and Keith & Cheryl Thurmond, with our goal to restore First Monday to its fullest potential, we are making changes to the marketing and to the grounds layout. We are committed to evolving our market with renewed interest in the preferences of the customers and to finding new and creative ways to better serve those customers and our Community. First Monday has been around for over a 127 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 as a youngster, bring your own youngsters and continue this time honored tradition of buying, selling, and trading. 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. And don't leave without a fried pie, a funnel cake, or a Corn Dog!
