My folks and I were some of the first vendors at the old Rocky Hill Flea Market. It started with 13 covered stalls and grew from there. I was in junior high school and it was during the late 1960's.
I lived a mile from there and when I was in my teens would bike down and get a job for the week as a "carny " ....I ran games , made sno cones, cotton candy, and ran a frresh lemonade stand one year.
those 10 years there made me.
