MCADOO -- People looking for household items could find them at a new flea market in Schuylkill County.

The first ever "Spring Fling Flea Market" was held inside "The Strand" in Mcadoo.

Dozens of area businesses, vendors and crafters put their goods on display.

Organizers said the event is meant to bring local residents together and also kick off the upcoming summer festival season.

"I've actually always wanted to do this for many many years and this was the year.  I said, ok we're gonna do this and started contacting some people.  So far its turning out wonderful.  Lots of food, games, and fun and entertainment," said John Shigo.

Organizers hope to hold the flea market again next year in Schuylkill County.
