Jamie’s – it’s really pronounced “Ja-mays” – is a family business dating back nearly 50 years. Started by William and Martha Jamie in the '60s as an auction house and furniture store, by the '70s Jamie’s had evolved into a flea market. William and Martha sold Jamie’s flea market to their daughter and son-in-law, Janice and Stan Ingersoll in 1976. Ralph and Lolita Mock bought Jamie’s in 1983 and kept the tradition of a family business alive.
The East Building was started in 1960. As the years went by and the business flourished, more rooms were added. The Center building was originally built in 1970. In 1998, vandals set fire to some waste bins causing the historic Center building to catch fire. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but this tragic fire meant lost inventory for the dealers. Nonetheless, Jamie’s never closed for business and the Mocks decided to rebuild quickly.
In 2008 the Mock daughters inherited the flea market. Lorna Ingersoll, granddaughter of William and Martha, and Stan and Janice’s daughter, is the General Manager of Jamie’s. Dan Ward, the 4th generation of the Jamie-Ingersoll family currently works here.
