FLEA MARKET PRICE INCREASE FOR 2022
As a direct result of substantial increases in the costs we pay to operate the Hershey fall meet, we are increasing the flea market space rental fee by $10 per space for 2022.
This is not a decision that was made easily, however, we are forced to adjust the vendor space rental price just to cover the costs of presenting the AACA Fall Nationals in Hershey.
It is important to remember that this event is put on by the volunteer members of the Hershey Region and is the first price increase we have had in nearly 10 years.
To acquire flea market spaces for the 2022 fall meet you must be an AACA member and you can call 717-534-1910 to join.
As an AACA member you will receive the Antique Automobile Club Magazine and in the 2022 May/June issue there will be an activity card enclosed in the plastic “mailer”. (The May/June issue is mailed the 3rd week in May). Send the activity card to AACA Headquarters with your selection to receive a registration card. During the first week of July, the requested registration card will be mailed to you. You will complete that card and send it along with the fee and any correspondence for field/space requirements to Hershey Region. The address will be on the registration card. Flea Market Spaces are 10′ X 30′ and we allow a maximum of 3 spaces per vendor (fee is $100.00/space for 2022). Space assignments are made by postmark order. (There are very few 3 space lots so you should indicate in your letter if you would take fewer spaces) The more specific your request is, the less likely it can be honored and you can advise us to return your check if we cannot honor your space requests.
I urge you to read the AACA Policies and Procedures to review authorized and prohibited items for sale. You can visit www.aaca.org and click on Publications then P&P Manual then Chapter 5.9. Be aware of the strict deadline on the registration card that you receive from AACA. A PA Sales tax License is required by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Visit www.pa100.state.pa.us on the Internet or call 717-783-1405. You should not wait for your sales tax license number to submit your registration card. Write “APPLIED FOR” above the space where the tax number would be written on the card. Should you have any further questions you can email [email protected].
Our flea market is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, during the Fall Meet, 7:00 AM until 5:00 PM, and admission is free.
