Organized by our President, Jeff Beitel, Friends of Marshall Square Park hosted its first Flea Market. Sixteen people participated in the genial event, which ran from 8:30 AM until 12:30 PM. The tables stretched nearly the whole length of East Biddle Street and wrapped around onto North Matlack!
Space was free and sellers took advantage of the free advertising and large group. Jeff suggested they donate whatever portion of their sale proceeds (recommended minimum of 30%) to Friends of Marshall Square Park to benefit Park restoration and improvement efforts.
“Not bad for the first year!” said Jeff who holds $844.65 in donations while waiting for one other promised.
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR?!
