Another Sandpoint Icon closes?

The parking lot is empty..... but that is normal for this time of the year... but during the summer the parking lot is full from side to side... and even some out back...

You have travelled by it on your way to and from Sandpoint..... some daily, some during the summer...

The trailers wait for their owners to open up and have them busy from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon during the summer.

But as you can see, there is a FOR SALE sign next the the name of this area...

And the Daily Bee reports that it has been sold... and the new owner probably won't

open it up for business that has come out of here for over 30 years.. that I know of.

For those of us, with out much cash in our pockets, we come to see what products are

being sold this weekend... maybe that item you need, but don't have the bucks for a new


There was a little bit of something for everyone... some times guns, all kinds of knives,

old books, records, tools, even some antiques, games, plants, sunglasses and all of us remember

the place that use to be here... and is now across the street... Sam's Produce.

For some it was a routine for a Saturday morning... breakfast and then a cup of coffee,

in hand, as you strolled down the aisles to see the wares of those who put down $15 (was

3 years ago) each stall.... to sell what they no longer wanted, or what they thought would

earn them some money. Sometimes there were trades. Always things of interest.

Some vendors who showed up year after year.. selling kitchen towels, wood signs and

furniture, plants, and other things...

I don't know what the King is going to do for his Saturday morning ritual...

As the FLEA MARKET is reportedly CLOSED for business...
