MUSEUM ACCEPTING DONATED GOODS FOR ANNUAL FLEA MARKET

The Finney County Historical Society is accepting gently used items for the patio sale planned at the Seventh Annual Flea Market Festival of Antiques, Collectibles, Art and Crafts July 9 at the Finney County Museum.

The festival will feature three to five dozen vendor booths offering handcrafts, art, products, collectibles, antiques and food, but it also includes a sale of donated goods on the south patio of the museum, with proceeds going to support exhibits, research, education and preservation.

Museum offices are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, and the staff is accepting good, clean items ranging from appliances, dishes, décor, furniture, housewares and cookware to games, toys, artwork, lamps and other garage sale merchandise. The only things the sale can’t use are shoes, clothing and books, as well as non-flat panel televisions.

Donations may be taken to the north entrance of the museum at 403 S. Fourth in Finnup Park. Information is available at 620-272-3664, and pick-up may be arranged in advance in most cases.

In addition to accepting donated goods, the museum is also still registering people who would like to operate booths during the festival. Vendor packets are available at the museum and anyone with questions is welcome to stop by or call. The event is taking place in cooperation with the Jungle Run Revival car show at Lee Richardson Zoo, and with support from the Finney County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
