WASHINGTON, DC (May 15)— has a new look and a new “Featured Exhibitor” page. Follow the link to the right to access the “new”

The new face of adds style and functionality to the website. Bill Severe, chief web designer at Ask1expert, worked closely with Tom Rall, owner of and manager of The Flea Market at Eastern Market on Sundays, to update the design and role of the website.

The new design is sleek and compact. “It’s important to take into account the overall purpose of the website and design around that thought”, said Severe. According to Rall the new website is pleasing to the eye and designed to lead visitors easily to the content for which they are searching.

The new “search” utility works hand-in-hand with the new “Featured Exhibitor” portal. Want to know who is selling what at the flea market? Want to know what days a particular exhibitor will be at the market? You can now search by name, business name and product to find what you are looking for. Or…you can simply browse by a list of exhibitors.

“The ‘Featured Exhibitor’ portal gives our visitors a way to easily contact our exhibitors through email and direct links to their websites”, said Rall. Each featured exhibitor “spotlight” also contains a paragraph or two describing the exhibitors and their businesses.

“The new is just a click away. Visitors will find it easy to navigate and search for exhibitors and products. Eastern Market is born once again on the net, breathing new life into a century old market place,” Severe stated.
