From harmonicas to eggplants, old typewriters to classic vinyl records, the choices are far-reaching plus there are food trucks on-site and porta-potties when nature calls.
Imagine if you will, everyone in your town going through their storage containers and attics picking out both personal and used household items to sell in one main location in town. That is exactly what the Elephant's Trunk is all about but on a much more grandiose scale. Thinking about becoming a vendor? Click this link.
