UPDATE  December 13, 2017

 

Thank you for supporting The United Methodist Children’s Home flea market! We’re eager to share with you the current status of the flea market, as well as  the status of future sales and donations.

 

The Children’s Home main administrative office and flea market relocated to 1967 Lakeside Parkway, Building 400, Tucker, GA 30084 earlier this fall. We appreciate your enthusiasm and patience as we’re establishing the flea market at our new location in Tucker! Over the span of several weeks, we are unpacking and organizing flea market inventory at our new location that’s more spacious for shoppers. As such, we’re unable to accept new donations for the flea market. We hope to begin accepting new donations, which are tax-deductible, early 2018.

 

Tentatively, the flea market’s grand opening sale is scheduled for Saturday, February 17, 2017. Stay posted for future updates via email correspondence and online at http://www.umchildrenshome.org/the-flea-market/.

 

Again, thank you for your support and please stay posted for future updates.

 

Happy Holidays from The United Methodist Children’s Home!

 

***********************************************************

The Children’s Home holds flea markets to benefit our work to help children and families in need. The event is hosted by the Auxiliary, a group supporting The Children’s Home since 1940. Our flea markets draw in thousands of people from local and nearby communities and even neighboring states.

 

What is sold at the flea market?

A wide variety of items are sold including clothing, jewelry, shoes, books, glassware, flatware, china, furniture,  toys, appliances, plants from our volunteer master gardeners, and much more. There also is a bake sale and beverage station.

 

We accept cash, check and all major credit cards. Please bring your own bags. Reusable bags available for purchase.

 

How can I donate items?

 

Items can be donated to the flea market any time, day or night.  When you drop off your donation, you may pick up a receipt slip for your tax records, or you can stop in the Administration building during regular business hours to fill one out.

 

How can I volunteer at the Flea Market?

 

Our flea markets would not be possible without the hard work of more than 200 volunteers!  The Children’s Home Auxiliary hosts each event. The Auxiliary was established in 1940 to support The Children’s Home and the group volunteers throughout the year to sort and tag items for each flea market.

 

On flea market days, The Children’s Home needs volunteers to help customers, move merchandise, direct traffic in the parking lot, bag items, assist in the check-out process, and many other tasks.
