The Women's League largest fund raising event each year is the Flea Market, held in the spring at University of Puget Sound's Memorial Fieldhouse. The original idea for this event dates back to 1967, when a member of the League was inspired by a visit to a flea market in Paris, France, and the first event was held in the spring of 1968. The funds raised go to support student scholarships.

The event includes more than 60 booths offering a variety of goods, ranging from food to antiques. You can find sporting goods, home furnishings, clothes, books--there's even a silent auction.

Tickets can be purchased in advance from league members or at the door. See contacts at right for tickets, making a donation, or putting a flea market sign in your yard.
