Big Flea Institutes Monthly Drop Offs–First one is November 22nd

Just in time for Thanksgiving! Trying to de-clutter before the holiday? The Big Flea is accepting drop-off donations at its storage site: 409 E. Alexandria Avenue on Sunday, November 22nd–from 1-3pm only. Your donations enable the Mount Vernon Community School PTA to raise money for student enrichment programs. We are accepting donations now in anticipation of our Big Flea event on April 24, 2010.

The MV Big Flea accepts items that have resale value. In recent years, that has included electronics, furniture, antiques, collectibles, jewelry, kids items (toys, strollers), bicycles, household furnishings, sporting goods, artwork, small appliances and more. If you think your item can be resold, we’ll likely accept it.

We’ve also learned that some items just aren’t right for the MV Big Flea. As a result, we cannot accept the following items for donation:

– Clothing
– Chandeliers/ceiling fans
– Large upholstered furniture, beds or cribs
– Stuffed animals
– Building supplies
– Pillows/curtains/linens
– TVs (flatscreen OK) or computer hardware
– Books (Contact Thom Downing, Friends of Duncan Library, at
