Flea Marketing in Kendall Park
There's nothing like a community flea market right in your neighborhood! Willows Swim Club in Kendall Park, NJ hosted a flea market this past Saturday, and I had a lot of fun meeting the very friendly vendors. Some are my neighbors, some are artists, some are local business people...ALL are terrific people who got up early on a chilly, over-cast weekend morning to haul their treasures from their vehicles to a spot in the Willows parking lot.
Brushill Nursery and Landscaping had a spot with information on their services and plants to kick off the gardening season. My booth neighbor bought some gorgeous pepper plants that made me want to start a garden of my own.
Another booth run by Cyd Webster, author of Struck by Lightning and other bolts of reality
If like me, you grew up in Kendall Park, the Willows Swim Club is an institution, its seasonal opening signaling the end of school and the beginning of lazy summer days. It boasts a 6 lane 25 meter pool, 2 diving boards, shallow section, separate kiddie pool, volleyball and basketball courts, and 2 tennis courts. They are located at 22 Sand Hills Road in Kendall Park, and membership is currently available.
It's great to have flea market and garage sale season in full swing!! I'll see you all out there. Fair warning...I brake for vintage dressers!!
