The event will offer flea market enthusiasts some of the best deals in Connecticut and an opportunity to hunt, bargain, and buy at more than 70 booths selling antiques, repurposed furniture, collectibles, jewelry, crafts, household items, clothing, toys, and specialty farm-to-table items. The Mansion will manage a White Elephant table, highlighting items generously donated by supporters and offered to the public for as little as $1.
Trendy food trucks will include Cousins Maine Lobster, recently featured on Shark Tank; The Chamo, serving outstanding Venezuelan beach cuisine; and Lucky Dog Food Truck featuring specialty hot dogs, while a classic and antique car show featuring the Connecticut Seaport Car Club will entertain shoppers of all ages.
The event will be chaired by LMMM Volunteer and antiques dealer Steve Balser who has been a Flea Market vendor for the past 20 years. Mr. Balzer said, “The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum annual Flea Market continues to attract visitors from all over Connecticut and beyond. A wide variety of dealers from New England and New York display their antiques, crafts, special edibles and other treasures. Everyone is bound to find something that makes their day!” The Museum will be open for $5 mini-tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
