Collectors and bargain hunters, get ready to rummage through previously loved goods: the Seniors’ Activity Centre (SAC) is hosting their annual Flea Market fundraiser on Sunday, April 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the West Vancouver Arena located at 2121 Marine Drive. All proceeds raised will go to supporting senior citizens and helping the SAC purchase equipment.
This annual community bazaar is hosted and coordinated by hundreds of SAC volunteers. Organizers are now accepting donations of lightly used household items and collectibles including clothing, antiques, artwork, kitchenware, jewelry, furniture, toys, books and other suitable objects. The SAC is asking that all items are clean and in sellable condition.
Unacceptable items include mattresses, old rugs, old ski equipment, older heavy couches, older TVs, car seats, cribs and large appliances including washers, dryers and dishwashers. Materials left over will be donated to organizations like Big Brothers and the Developmental Disability Association. Electronics will be recycled through the Electronics Recycling Program and books will be donated to the Reading Tree.
Donations can be dropped off to the arena at the 22nd Street entrance from Monday, March 25 to Thursday, April 4 (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). The arena will be closed for drop-offs March 29 to April 1. Pickups are also available for anyone who is unable to drop-off their donation—please call 604-925-7280 to arrange a pick-up.
More volunteers are still needed to help before, after and during the event. For more information, please call 604-925-7280.
