Rick Fleshman, president of New Market's Antique Dealers Association, said he believes business has been a little slow.His
store, Fleshman's Antiques, at 2 W. Main St., is only open on weekends.
,, ...Fortunately we've had some nice weather on the weekends, but the rainy weather doesn't always keep people away," he
said though some stores are promoting individual sales, he
is not aware of any effort to collectively promote New Market
as a shopping destination.
At this point, Antique Dealers Association
is focusing its energies on next year, in terms of new advertising efforts.
,,This is when we collect our dues," he
said. ,,We're discussing where we are going to advertise next year."
