Indoor, outdoor markets
This summer, shoppers will have two choices for flea markets.
Shady Hollow, the outdoor market that has been open for 41 years, and SuLaine's Flea Market, which is new this month and will be located indoors.
Shady Hollow has been serving Detroit Lakes for 41 years, many of which have been under the ownership of Ardy Hanson. First as a vendor and then as part owner, Hanson said she's been a part of the flea market for all but 12 of those 41 years. Shady Hollow is open Sundays.
Vendors sell anything from jewelry to clothing, artwork to food, antiques to furniture, books to home décor, flowers to toys.
If the name SuLaine sounds familiar, that's because it is. Sue Petersen is also the owner of SuLaine's Antique Mall, located in front of the new Boys and Girls Club Thrift Store and More building, formerly Pamida.
The flea market location is three miles east of Detroit Lakes in Highway 10, formerly the Tools & More building. There will be space for at least 60 indoor vendors in addition to the outdoor area. SuLaine's has an advantage with the indoor space available, but she said she'll also be able to cooperate with Shady Hollow, exchanging vendors in case of rain or in case she runs out of room. SuLaine's Flea Market is open weekends.
