It’s time for the Spring Flea Market and there are many opportunities to participate.
Here’s the scoop:
Items will be collected from now through Sunday, March 19.
All items must be clean and in working condition. PLEASE do not include clothes.
If you are able, please take all items directly upstairs to the loft, otherwise leave them on the benches outside Fellowship Hall.
Final Pricing — Sunday, March 19, from 10:45 a.m. until ???
Unpacking the Boxes — Thursday, March 23, from 9:00 a.m. until ???.
Help us unpack for an hour or two or stay all day and really get a workout. We are typically done between 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. Snacks will be provided, but if you plan to stay all day, you may want to bring a bagged lunch.
Sale Day — Saturday March 25, from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
The Flea Market opens at 8:30 a.m., and we usually have shoppers arriving early, so the most help is needed during the first few hours.
Soup Cooks and Bakers Needed. We are looking for bakers to make items for the snack bar such as mini muffins, cookies, and brownies. Baked goods can be dropped off in the kitchen or on the cart outside of the office on Friday, March 24, and on Saturday sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. We are also looking for a gallon of each of the following soups: chicken noodle, potato and chili. Soup can be dropped off in the kitchen on Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. or by 9:30 a.m. on the day of the Flea Market.. Containers can be provided.
Don’t forget that flea market helpers get first crack at all merchandise!!

Thanks in advance for all your help to make this year’s spring flea market a huge success.
