Check out the Spring Flea Market Saturday

The Queen Anne Community Center‘s Spring Flea Market is happening this Saturday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A variety of vendors will be setting up booths in the community center lobby and gym for the event, which is free and open to all ages.

“There’s going to be a number of vendors out there–arts and crafts stuff, antiques, stuff from peoples’ houses,” said one community center employee. The Queen Anne Farmers Market will be at the flea market selling posters and totes for the upcoming 2010 season, which kicks off next month.

If you’re a fan of bargain shopping, stop by and check it out. If you’re a local vendor, or simply looking to get rid of a few things, consider getting a booth at the market. Booths costs $25 and the community center will provide up to two tables per vendor. For more information, stop by the Queen Anne Community Center, located at 1901 1st Ave W, or call (206)386-4240.
