Returning to the Flea Market: Trinket or Treasure? Find out from antiques experts!
Our major fundraiser, this very popular community event has been held since 1968 and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for student scholarships.
We have booths of our own—Boutique, Books, Furniture, and Grandma's Attic—that embody the Flea Market spirit with treasures and bargains galore. These areas, along with the Cafe and Raffle, are staffed by Women's League volunteers and 100% of the proceeds go to student scholarships. When you visit Women's League booths, please consider donating your change or rounding up your purchase price to further benefit the scholarship fund!
In addition to Women's League booths, we rent space to over 50 vendors, who offer a variety of items, including antiques, junktique, re-purposed, vintage, jewelry, household items, artisan crafts, food, and more!
**Doing spring cleaning? We're seeking donations of items in good condition for Grandma's Attic and the Boutique, as well as the Books and Furniture sections run by the Women's League. Please plan to bring your donations to the field house on Wednesday, March 15 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. (If this time frame doesn't work for you, please let us know and we'll try to make other arrangements.)
Here's what we need...and what you'll find when you come to shop!
Grandma's Attic and Boutique: Collectibles; vintage and antique items; jewelry & accessories (but no clothing, please); housewares such as linens, dishes, crystal, flatware, kitchen gadgets, etc.; home and garden decor; holiday items; craft supplies; tools; games; toys; sporting goods; camping gear; and other treasures!
Books: Print and audio books, maps, movies, and music (vinyl, cassettes, and CDs)
Furniture: Tables, chairs, desks, bookcases, sofas, lamps, mirrors, rugs, trunks, bicycles, exercise equipment, outdoor furniture, and other odds & ends—last year we had a home safe and a wringer washer!
Trinket or Treasure? Ever wonder what that family heirloom or white elephant in your attic is worth? Certified antiques experts will be on hand from 10-2 during the Puget Sound Women's League Flea Market to help solve the mystery. Bring your items to find out if they are trinkets or trea$ures!
Examination cost: $5 per item; 2 item limit per turn. ~Entry to the Flea Market is a separate $5 charge. But! All proceeds from your entry fee and examination go towards student scholarships!
What to bring? Maybe...jewelry, wrist watches, collectibles, baseball cards, sports memorabilia, sculpture, pottery, paintings, old books, musical instruments, clocks, curios, tchachkes, or thingamajigs!
Don't have anything you want evaluated? You're welcome to have a seat and watch the examinations. Trinket or Treasure will be located in the Boutique/Furniture room on the first floor, in the southeast corner of the Fieldhouse.
