New Orleans, LA, June 06, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- What's an Open-Air-Market you ask? Well here's the gist...Think garage/yard sale meets festival marketplace meets thrift store with a little art gallery all mixed into one wonderful shopping gumbo. Access To Treasure is also planning to incorporate local entertainment in the next few weeks.
Access To Treasure's location & hours are as follows:
2059 Jackson Ave., New Orleans, La. 70113 every Saturday now through September from 8am-4pm.
Access To Treasure understands the importance of recycling the things consumers have of value but no longer make use of.
Lifestyles have changed and Access To Treasure is in a position to teach others the importance of getting the most for their dollars. Not only has their company taken the opportunity to pass on savings, but our business is made up of local vendors who are doing the same. In the spirit of a co-op, Access To Treasure is allowing others in the community to join in learning the value of recycling valuables. In this economy people are looking to get more bang for their bucks. Thrift stores & flea markets are quickly replacing department stores as go to locations for higher ticket items. Access To Treasure would like to fill the need to cut back on the money families have to spend so they can redirect their incomes to more productive needs.
