n the early 1970's, an eclectic boutique opened in the old Victorian home located at the front of our present location. The owner called her boutique "The Elephant's Trunk Too." The original Elephant's Trunk name came from a shop located in Mt. Kisco, New York. The original logo designed for the boutique contained an elephant with a chest full of gems strapped on its back.
When the boutique closed in 1976, the logo was transferred to the Flea Market. When you think about it, it is appropriate, since there are treasures and gems to be discovered here every week! Thus was created The Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market with the logo we continue to use.
The Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market began in 1976. The first markets found aisles named after New York City streets or alley-ways. The market was held on Sundays, and in 1976, the presence of fifteen vendors was a "big" day!
