Latest Finds from the MV Big Flea
Since we last posted about the MV Big Flea in January, there is a ton of new merchandise at the storage unit on Swann Ave. Volunteers will be collecting donations of used furniture and household items until the end of April, when everything will be sold at the Mount Vernon Rec Center to raise money for the Mount Vernon Community School.
There is a wide selection of furniture — antique, vintage and modern. Some items need a dusting, some a new coat of paint, others are ready to go as is.
This vintage glider is truly amazing — the green vinyl is in excellent condition, the metal frame could just use a coat of paint. It also converts into a full-sized bed, perfect for a summer sleeping porch.
And speaking of vintage, check out this kitchen table. It has chairs, but they need repairs to the seat cushions.
The toy and homewares sections have exploded since our last visit too.
This is only a fraction of what the Flea has collected so far. The big sale is April 29 at the Mount Vernon Rec Center, but you can purchase anything that has been donated during their upcoming drop off days:
