Vendor spaces remain available for the Old Court House Museum’s annual Fall Flea Market.

“There are still a few spaces left,” said museum historian Jordan Rushing. “We’re having the most booths we’ve had in the last five years. We’ve added an extra 44 spaces and we’re close to selling them out. We’re going to have a good market; we’ve sold a total of 140 spaces so far and I have 25 spaces left.”

He said some vendors are expected to come to the museum to pay their fees and look at their spaces.
