You knew it was coming back.
Capitol's Indoor Flea Market didn't surprise.The new location is Zia Center, 4641 Airport Road, Suite 1. There is air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter.
Capitol's Indoor Flea Market is still owned by Liz Iddings
, who has partnered with Arlene H. Sisneros
and Delfie Salazar.
These ladies know how rough the economy is and how people want and need to make some extra income. But sitting out in the sun and wind can be torture. They know because they have done it.
Now they have put their nickels and dimes together and found a location where people can sell their items and stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The flea market will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Mondays. They will offer daily, weekly and monthly rates.
Also, if people wish to set up but can't stay to take care of their space, the women will take care of their space and sell their items for them as long as all items are priced. For further information, call Iddings at 690-5017 or Sisneros at 501-3127.

Schepps also credits local property owner and hotelier David Oberstein for the fact that the hotel has grown over the years from its original 36 rooms to 72 rooms and suites.
The inn has enjoyed repeated recognition on a national and international level, including Condé Nast Traveler's designation of the property as one of the top 500 Hotels in the world.

U.S. Sen. Tom Udall
, D-N.M., has introduced a bill that would help create new jobs by expanding federal contracting opportunities for small businesses trying to recover from the recession. Companion legislation is being introduced in the House of Representatives.
The Expanding Opportunities for Main Street Act would raise the value of federal contracts that are set aside for small businesses to $500,000 and would increase the government-wide small-business contracting goal, a statement from Udall said.
The bill would also make the process more transparent by requiring that federal entities explain in writing why a small business was not awarded a contract.
