A new outdoor swap meet starts this Saturday, June 27 in Fort Scott.
A swap meet is a gathering for the sale or barter of usually secondhand objects, according to merriam-webster.com.
“This is where you can possibly find the best of everything else,” Monalynn Decker, organizer of the event, said. “This is where there will be a mixture of new, used, and old, goodies to find.”
“My reason (to start this event) is… I felt that along… that this would help vendors in getting a chance to sell items that they haven’t been able to since Covid-19 has started,” Decker said. ” I’m also hoping that this event will help our event visitors in finding much-needed items at affordable prices!”
“I’m hoping that this summer event will bring our community, along with surrounding communities to come out a bit – (but safely) and have some fun,” she said.
Mo’s Swap Meet will be open from June 27 to September 19 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the parking lot of The Venue, 223 S. Margrave. The parking lot is on the east side of the building, which is at the corner of Third and Barbee Streets.
Monalynn Decker is the organizer of the event, and vendors should pre-register by phone to Decker at 417-689-9289.
Space rental is 15 by 15-foot, $15; 15 by 30-foot, $25.
The swap meet will be held rain or shine, according to Mo’s Swap Meet Facebook page, unless canceled by the organizer.
