See these guys? The good people of Gentle Giant Moving Company picked up every last blinkin’ item in our storefront space and transported it to the Mount Vernon Rec Center on Friday. Thanks, guys.
See these guys? Gentle Giant did them a solid.
The gym is empty. The tables are folded. The Garrison Keillor bobblehead found a new home.
And…the Flea raised $35,000! This is our all-time record for fund-raising. And we couldn’t have done it without all the people who donated stuff for us to sell and everyone who came to shop. And, of course, the Flea sponsors and volunteers…
7 a.m.: Early admission, $10

The MV Big Flea is nearly here, holy heck, where did the time go.
This Saturday is your final opportunity to donate or get a jump on other Flea shoppers — you can drop off your lovingly used junque or peruse our nearly stuffed-to-bursting storefront space from 2-4 p.m.
We’re still looking for volunteers for Friday (the all important day before) and Saturday (the all important day-of). Email Caroline Jackson, email@example.com.
You guys! It’s nearly FLEA TIME!!!!
M&T Bank has donated $1,000 to the MV Big Flea. The bank has also agreed to donate bottled water for volunteers on May 3 and May 4 and is is offering volunteers to work during the Big Flea itself on May 4.
Obviously, we’re over the moon about this. We appreciate M&T’s support, which doesn’t just help Big Flea — in the end, the money we raise goes to the Mount Vernon Community School PTA, which uses it for students and teachers. If you happen to rub elbows with M&T volunteers working during the Big Flea, please thank them for their company’s support.
And if you’re interested in volunteering, we have some spots open! Email Caroline Jackson for details: firstname.lastname@example.org. See you Saturday!
We’ll be rocking and rolling Saturday, March 30, with another Shop N Drop, from 2-4 p.m. at our storefront space: 3815 Mt. Vernon Ave.
So if you’re staycationing this year and need to get out of the house, or you’ve been using the break to sort through your belongings, please consider the Flea. We’re here, promise.
