“It’s safe to say that the day attracted more than 4,000 people for antiques, collectibles, art and crafts, as well as other bargains and discoveries. This was our eighth annual festival, and it has grown from 12 visiting vendors in 2010 to 60 today.
In addition to a selection of gently-used garage sale and flea market items offered on our patio and in the meeting room, artists, artisans and others were here from nearly two dozen Kansas and Oklahoma communities with collectibles, antiques, candy jars, cookies jars, banks, crafts signs, vintage objects, repurposed items, purses, bags, a wide variety of jewelry, quilts, crocheted items, barn quilts, lamps, wind chimes, essential oils, infused products, pain relief ointment, art, home décor, leathercrafts, clothing, antique and outdoor furniture, stained glass, educational information, Holy Land scarves, metal art, soaps, lotions, ceramic pottery, rope and horseshoe art, knick-knacks, books and other items.
Additional vendors brought LuLaRoe, Tupperware, Perfectly Posh and Damsel in Defense products, as well as Pampered Chef, Thirty One, Lilla Rose, Aloette, Avon and Jerkylicious products. There were also pickles, salsa, jams, jellies and baked goods, plus on-site food and lemonade, soft drinks and other beverages.
The event was possible through the cooperation of Lee Richardson Zoo and other city departments, plus the support of the Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau, all of our staff members, approximately 30 volunteers, and many members and leaders of Boy Scout Troop 59.
Thank you to all our sponsors, vendors and patrons for making this a huge success!!!”
