Founder of JC Promotions, Inc...
It all began in the late 90’s when my dear father passed away leaving my mother, Jay Merenda head of household, with 2 young boys to raise. Now Jay, a very personable and resourceful lady started a small business selling at flea markets. Within a year, she was running her own small flea market.
When the business took off there was too much for her to do alone. I was already helping her to run things so eventually when mom retired I took over the business.
Although Jay was retired, she still loved selling at the markets. She would sell anything…mostly tag sale items priced at $1 or under. She was immensely popular among the dealers and customers alike. They would enjoy stopping by her booth to chit-chat and see what special items they’d find on her table.
Over time, what started out as a popular flea market with 20 dealers has grown to become a variety of vendor-based events that feature shopping, amusements, entertainment, good food, and more. Today, JC offers a show that fits almost everyone’s choice of a fun time.
Sadly, my mom passed away in 2018. She left her legacy behind in creating a wonderful way to bring people together. She will always remain in the hearts of the many people she touched with her loving ways.
