A great way to buy from or sell to agility people!
The Flea Market is open 24/7 for you to buy and / or sell your pre-loved items all year round. It's free and talks direct to the dog people you want to reach for as long as it takes!
You can now add potential agility dogs direct, using the on-line form. This is a free service for rescue organisations and private individuals!
