The Big Flea

Big Flea - Neighborhood Flea Market

For years, Earlewood has hosted treasure seekers, gardeners, and bargain hunters at its annual Neighborhood Flea Market. The location and name have changed, but each May dozens of vendors and hundreds of shoppers continue to take part in this exciting community event.

No Big Flea in 2015

Earlewood will be taking a year off from the Big Flea event this year.
Please check back in 2016!

So much more than a neighborhood yard sale, the Big Flea features treasures from the attics and garages of dozens of residents and friends.

The Big Flea is the main fundraiser for our neighborhood association, with all proceeds going towards neighborhood beautification projects and events that directly impact the quality of life in Earlewood. We hope that you can help us make this year’s event a success. There are several ways Earlewood residents can show their support.

Rent a space and sell

For less than the cost of a classified ad in the paper, you can reserve your vendor space at Earlewood’s Big Flea! Registration is easy – just visit our online registration page to complete the online form or leave a voicemail at (803)200-COLA to have a paper form delivered to you.

Donate items for the “Earlewood Table”

Do you have a box full of unwanted items waiting for that yard sale you’ve had on your to-do list? Donating items that you no longer want or need will be a huge help to our neighborhood. We accept any donations except clothes, and all donations are tax deductible.

The scheduled Big Flea donation drop-off day is Friday, April 25th. If you can, please bring your donation(s) to 3307 Elmhurst Road between 9am and 7pm on the 25th.

To have your donation picked up on Friday, May 2nd, between 12pm and 5pm, please email earlewoodevents@gmail.com or call (803)200-COLA for scheduling.


If you’d like to volunteer to help out on Friday, May 2nd or Saturday, May 3rd, please email earlewoodevents@gmail.com or leave a voicemail at (803)200-COLA. There is also a volunteer sign up form online.


Whether you stop by the food table for a quick bite and cup of coffee, or you plan to drive home with a carload of affordable treasures, we hope to see you at Earlewood’s Big Flea on May 3rd. Don’t forget to invite your friends!
