Our Most Valuable Donation Ever!

Move over Nutty Bavarian nut roaster.  Say hello to the Longaberger basket collection!

We’re happy to announce that we’ve sold a collection of Longaberger baskets for $1,510.  This breaks the record for the most valuable item ever received by the MV Big Flea.  That record was held by the infamous nut roaster, which was donated by Amanda Lenk in 2010.

Cathy Mitchell, a former resident of Del Ray, was the generous donor of the basket collection. “My neighbors have children that attend Mt Vernon and told me about the Big Flea,” Cathy said, “so I figured it was the perfect place to send them to.”

Thank you Cathy for your amazing generosity!

The Fifth Annual MV Big Flea is Saturday, April 30th rain or shine! The doors open at 8am ($10 admission) with general  admission (free) starting at 9am. Location: Mount Vernon Rec Center on Commonwealth Avenue in Del Ray. The Shop N Drop will be open Saturday April 16 and 23 from 2-4 for donations and sales.

We hope to see you at the Big Flea!
