Because who needs more than one pair of Freddy Krueger hands?
Horror fans can clean out their closets and sell some of their old horror-themed memorabilia or VHS tapes. Interested nonprofessional vendors can contact Horror Realm in order to buy a space at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guests can also grab a snack from the Hollywood Theater concession stand, or buy something from the bake sale.
Date: August 24
Time: 10-2 p.m.
After the flea market there will be a showing of "Rewind This!" at 3 p.m. with $5 tickets. At 5 p.m. "Bloodsuckers from Outer Space" will be shown and costs $7. It's $10 to see both films.
Proceeds from both the market and the movie screenings benefit the Hollywood Theater.
