Sign up now for United Church of Sandwich’s flea market fundraiser

The United Church of Sandwich, 512 Lions Road in Sandwich, is offering a fundraiser available to anyone who wants to sell their treasures at an indoor flea market and bake sale.

The sale will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 9 inside at 512 Lions Road (back entrance by circular drive). Participants can rent an 8-foot table for $15 (maximum of two tables per family at $15 each). Electricity is available for an additional $10 per table.

Sellers may not sell any item prohibited by law, guns, mattresses, animals, etc. All treasures must fit on the table. Clothes racks are permitted but will take the place of a table and the $15 fee will apply. If a seller prefers not to have a table, the space of an 8-foot table will be provided for the $15 fee. Advertising is included in the $15 table fee.

Sellers must remain set up the entire sale time, and are responsible for their own table setup, tear-down, cleanup, cash box, and taking home items that don’t sell and any empty boxes. Setup begins at 7:30 a.m. on April 8; for an additional $5, sellers can set up from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 7. 

The event is a church fundraiser. Rental fees and bake sale money will go to the church finance committee. The church will not be responsible for any valuables, tables left unattended or any accidents. Sellers must reserve and pay for the table in advance. Contact Christine at 815-786-243 with any questions. The kitchen will not be open. The bake sale will be available from 9 a.m. to noon.

Buyers: The flea market opens at 9 a.m. April 9. No early birds, please. Payment for items must be made at each individual table. Bakery goods will be available for purchase from 9 a.m. to noon.
