    Dixie Stampede would actually be a good name for a flea market.

    So they didn't renew Dixie Stampede's Contract so they could open a flea market, ahhh the business sense.

    That flea market was having financial problems from the get go. A lot of the vendors were leaving, which is not a good sign. That building is doomed. :(

    That would be a great spot for a Haunted attraction. Dolly Parton's monster mountains? Sorry.

    I think Kevin should rent the building and turn it into a Shrine aimed at Kiss and Cher, maybe even make it a Kiss Koffee House like they have in Myrtle Beach.

    Yeah driving by it last night it looked open and they are still running the big electronic sign on the building advertising the flea market and world's largest pizza parlor that smells like a barn.

    I saw on the news the other day that the building has closed due to non-payment and that the vendors were locked out, unable to grab any of their stuff.
