Crazy J’s Consignments opens at Hayes
Crazy J’s Consignments opened for business on Sunday at Hayes Plaza Shopping Center, Hayes.
The business, which began about a year ago at Stage Coach Flea Market, White Marsh, still operates a branch there, said owner Joel Canepa. He’s one of the store’s two "J’s"; the other being sales associate Jon Presgraves of Wicomico, with Canepa indicating both are rather loud, friendly type guys and so the store got its name.
Canepa now runs both a small shop at Stage Coach and a much larger operation at Hayes Plaza, located between Ginny’s Place and Dollar General. There, he has approximately 5,300 square feet, of which much of the space (4,300 square feet) is a large showroom. To the rear, he plans to open a 300-square-foot display area for major appliances, as well as 700 square feet for office and storage.
Canepa and his associates sell some of their own merchandise, as well as items on consignment. Presently, he has items from more than two dozen consigners, with more still signing up.
