Folks looking for that great buy

University of Puget Sound Flea Market

An impressive turn out for this years scholarship fundraising event at the UPS Field House Flea Market. Today people were lined up at both entrances on this brisk morning to get a chance to see what treasures they could find. They crowded in to view and purchase from over 60 booths. This years event has expanded from just antiques and collectables to include local small businesses. There were many collectables from old postcards to antique glassware, furniture, toys and vintage clothing and jewelry. A number of local businesses like Blue Beard coffee of Tacoma, Heavenly Honey Farms located in the Puyallup valley, Mountain Muesli cereal of Tacoma and Marcus Harper glassworks glass garden art to name a few. The UPS Womans League had a wonderful booth of donated glassware as well as furniture. Hand made soaps from the Soap Cabin in Milton and Basic Goods of Tacoma also had great selections of what they have available in their stores. It was a pleasure to wander through a flea market that had the old time feel of a true flea market, reflecting the interests of the community we live in. A big Thank you to Lynn and Amy for all their hard work in organizing this event, a great turnout, we hope to see them next year to continue bringing together the community and small business for the enjoyment of collectors and those of us who have been coming to this event for the last 45 years.
