GC to Host Community Flea Market Day



Members of the public have been invited to take part in a community-wide Flea Market to be held on the Garrett College campus on Saturday, June 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors spaces, both inside and outside, are now available. Vendor fees will benefit the Garrett College Students in Need Group (SING).


Created by a volunteer group of Garrett College faculty and staff, SING is dedicated to providing emergency assistance to students, on-campus and off, in times of extreme need or extenuating circumstance. Ann Wellham, Dean of Marketing and SING committee member, organized the first GC flea market last year. “It seemed that a spring flea market would be a good community event. It would give people a venue to sell some things unearthed during spring cleaning and also provide community social event. With space now available in the Garrett College Special Events Center – the former gym – we can accommodate many vendors indoors as well as outdoors,” she explained.

Food concessions will be available for flea market vendors and shoppers. Vendor spaces, which include tables and chairs, are available to individuals and to groups. Non-profit groups have the option of reserving two spaces free-of-charge with a fee for each additional table.

The vendor area will be open for setup Friday 5 -7 p.m. Registration for the Garrett College Flea Market may be completed online at www.garrettcollege.edu/events or by calling 301-387-3045.
