Vendors and crafters from eight Kansas and Oklahoma towns will converge in Garden City, Kans. on July 10, for the 12th Annual Flea Market Festival of Antiques, Collectibles, Art and Crafts.
The event will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside Lee Richardson Zoo, just south of the Finney County Historical Museum.
The array of vendors will be spread out in the Sun and shade along sidewalks inside the zoo, with a 4,500 square-foot sale of quality donated goods on the museum’s outdoor patio.
Vendors will also be in the indoor Mary Regan Conference Room and adjacent space.
The free-admission gathering is hosted by the museum, with sponsorship from the Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Commerce Bank of Garden City and Best Western Plus Emerald Inn and Suites.
The 12th Annual Flea Market Festival will take place simultaneously with Jungle Run VI, an auto show conducted on the zoo’s West Green by the Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo.
Public access to both events is through the zoo’s Fourth Street pedestrian arches.
Shoppers will find antiques, children’s books, boutique discoveries, candies, clothing, crafts of all kinds, collectibles, decorative gourds, glassware, metal sculpture and utility items, as well as purses, quilts, baby blankets, potholders, table toppers, splatterware, Tupperware and a variety of additional items.
Food options will range from hamburgers and hot dogs to pie and other treats.
The gently used merchandise offered by the museum ranges from ceramics, collector items, cups, Christmas decorations, brassware, dishes, DVDs, electronics, furniture and glassware to home décor, kitchenware, knick-knacks, lamps, picture frames, rugs, sports and exercise equipment, tins, toys and games, utensils, vinyl record albums, wall art and a boatload of other bargain-priced objects.
The Historic William Fulton House will be closed on Saturday due to the event, but the museum itself will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. However, the museum will be closed July 12.
