Aerial view of Century II
“I love Century II,” Spillman says. “They’ve been great to us.”
However, he says, “They limit the amount of vendor events there.”
The next two flea markets, April 20 and June 22 and 23, will still be at Century II. Then for the July 20 and 21 show, the market will move to Kansas Star.
Spillman says he’ll still be able to fit the same size booths and tables at the new space, and admission prices won’t change.
He plans to have 10 markets a year at Kansas Star.
“We like to say we’re monthlyish.”
Spillman says he went back and forth on keeping “Wichita” in the market’s name but decided “it’s what we’ve been branded under.”
“People know that name,” he says.
Also, Spillman says, just like Olathe and Overland Park are included under the name “Kansas City,” he thinks Mulvane and the casino are so close, going there isn’t like leaving the city.
“People think of it as Wichita.”
