Will you take $5 for this? (Sept. 21)

September 16, 2008

I’ve just learned that fall is prime yard-saling season around these parts, and this year I’m looking forward to having a friend show me all her favorite must-hit neighborhoods. (I would give you her tips, but I want to scoop up the deals ahead of you — sorry!) Apparently the folks at the Magic House are also more yard-sale-savvy than I am, because they’ve scheduled their Kids’ Flea Market this Sunday (Sept. 21). It runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features wares from roughly 100 young entrepreneurs cleaning out their closets and delving under their beds for stuff they don’t play with anymore. Vendors are all age 16 and under, but there’s no word on whether their parents are allowed to help them haggle. Or, for that matter, whether haggling is limited to shoppers under 16.

The event goes on rain or shine, and if bargains weren’t enough enticement, there will also be entertainment in the form of face painting, clowns and attendance prizes. It takes place on the Magic House’s front lawn, and admission is free.
