Packwood Memorial Day Weekend Flea Market Report & Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets
On Wednesday, May 24th through Monday May 29th, 2017, we had a Selah Sweets vendor booth set up at the Packwood Timberland Library for the Packwood Memorial Day Weekend Flea Market.
This time we brought the E350 Camper Van to sleep in and the 1961 Chinook Travel Trailer to vend out of. It worked out better than the pop-ups and P30 Van we used at the last Packwood Labor Day weekend Flea Market.
The weather was nice other than the wind on Wednesday when we first got there. It was nice to be able to see Mount Rainier from downtown Packwood.
With the heat we sold a lot of Shaved Ice. The fudge sales were not as good as last Labor Day Weekend. Sales over all were great for us and we were business most of the time. Our sons helped us and other vendors too. Our two youngest helped with the trash in the vending area to raise money for Boy Scout Camp.
Here are some photos of our time at the Packwood Flea Market:

On Saturday March 7th, 2009 after the Slab Clean-up, I headed over to Kent.
It took me four to get over the pass from Yakima to Kent because of the wind and snow.
I got to Kent about 9 PM and it was snowing there too.
The next morning I head toward Puyallup for the Swapmeet.

The Washington ATV Association booth.
I talk to them about coming over again for the Ahtanum ORV Trails clean up.
Here I wake up to it snowing again in Kent.
I left my brother’s home and headed a few miles over to my Mother’s house.
After a short visit with my Mother, I headed back over the pass in the snow.
It only took Two hours and 40 minutes to get home to Yakima.
The swapmeet was a lot of fun. It was great meeting new people and seeing the ones I know again.
