Bordentown City Cats’ long-running flea market fundraiser is back after a two-year hiatus with a new and expanded line-up featuring new and used goods, artisan crafts, antiques, cat-centric items and unique vendors.
The event will take place on Saturday, April 6 from 8 a.m.to 2 p.m., at the Carslake Community Center, located at 207 Crosswicks St. in Bordentown City. All proceeds from the event will benefit the group’s continuing efforts to rescue, foster, adopt and provide medical treatment to Bordentown’s stray and feral cat population.
“We launched this event back in 2003 to raise funds to support our rescue efforts and it grew in popularity for many years,” said Mak Kieffer, one of the group’s founders. “We took a brief break the last two years to take stock of people’s changing interests and now we’re back with a revamped line-up that includes some long-running favorites, like our treasure trove of used finds, as well as new additions like artisan crafts, popular cat-centric goods and other unique vendors. The beauty of the event is that all proceeds go to benefit the control of Bordentown’s stray cat population through the humane efforts of an enlightened community.”
Residents, crafters and business owners can get involved with the event by renting space or donating items. Accepted items include baked goods, gift certificates, and items from local businesses.
The cost to rent a space is $25. Anyone interested must contact the group to reserve a space and pay in advance. Carslake Community Center will be open the night before from 4-7 pm for advance set-up.
