Park Rapids merchants are smiling at the summer they’ve had, even though it got off to a late start.

One business that boomed was Summer Set Flea Market east of the city.


Also referred to as Summerset, the flea market attracted buyers, sellers, horse traders, barterers, swappers and bickerers.

Gordon Siemers was probably in that latter group, but his bickering was self-inflicted.
