Fun Day will be Saturday, July 5th this year. If you are interested in volunteering to help, we can always use folks for various activities.
Also, if you'd like to have a booth to sell/display your unique craft items, there's plenty of room - no charge!
Simply contact Cindy Riker (634-7487) or Cheryl Gahn (634-7200), and that's 231 area code, of course. thumbs_up!

BTW, Katie, this would be an ideal time to sell the new t-shirts/totes you're planning on bringing up! Smile

Katie,

I think they will sell very well! Have you talked to Larry about carrying them at Hawks? Let me know when you have them, I'll probably need 3, and if your not too far from Lombard, perhaps I could pick them up to save on shipping!

Katie,T-shirts always sell!!!! These are different enough so that people will want them, I'm sure!
Of course, that means you're competing against our Fun Day t-shirts, but then, oh well! Competition is a GOOD thing!!!
Wink BTW, put me down for at least 2 (one of each color), size L. Wink

I thought I posted here about the shirts but guess not so I will now, I need about 4 of them ..

I am coming to the island in July so should I wait and buy them then ?? or send you the sizes and color now ??

I agree with island Turtle .. if you have some at Hawks all summer I bet they will go over very well !!!!!

Its the perfect t-shirt !!

Hi Mike,

I live in the city. If you are driving through, you are more than welcome to pick them up. Let me know. I'm so excited that people seem interested in these.

We are in DIRE need of volunteers this year. If you can spare 1 hour of your time, it would be appreciated. We have no one to run the Kids games this year. Prior volunteers are willing to help set the games up and show the new volunteers the ropes. We need at least six people. If you are not interested in running the kids games, we have other areas open too. Call me, if you are interested. Cindy Riker 231-634-7487

Gee folks! No hidden trinkets to donate to our flea market? We are running way behind of previous years. Guess you gave it all away. Audrey Gahn will be at the fire hall every day starting Monday, 6/30, from 10am to noon. We are trying to get all donations by Thursday, 7/3. That will give us time to price and setup on Friday. Sooooooo....it's not too late!!! HOPE TO SEE YOU ON FUN DAY!!! :wave:

I think I heard that "no clothes and no furniture" is some of the reason things are not coming in. Just repeating what I heard. Don't shoot the messenger.

Rosemary, thank you for the comment. And it is a true statement. I've heard the same. We found that we had to dispose of the majority of the clothing that came into the flea market for the last two years. My husband took the unsold clothing for rags and was astonished that it did not sell. A lot of it was brand new. As far as furniture, we made a decision a few years ago not to take it. Unless it is something very small. I believe we took some end tables. But again, we found we were hauling the larger pieces of furniture to the transfer station. The people that had left it would not take it back. And we were left to dispose of it. A lot of successful selling items are used books, small appliances, dishes, silverware, fishing equipment, pictures and more. We are thinking it may be the end of the flea market era. We will see.

I must admit I am a bargain hunter as well...I may still be in my early 20's but I would rather buy two cute outfits from Meijer or Kmart that are cheap then go to big name brand stores and buy a tee shirt for $30+...I guess you can say it's the student in me...'gently used' hand-me-downs are always great

I'm stuck at home franticly (sp?) trying to finish working on the barn before the hay goes in. Hope everybody has a great day. Looking forward to pics of the event!
