The Neighborhood flea market, held yesterday at St. Paul’s United Methodist church, was a great success. Approximately 45 vendors participated. The community turned out strong to purchase items and socialize. This is what community is about. When people get out and meet each other, when they have reason to be supportive of each other, community fiber strengthens.
The church provided the space and tables free, cookies were free. This was an attempt to be of service to the neighborhood without placing any cost upon their shoulders.
The vendors and the purchasing visitors reported that this was an excellent idea. They were genuinely appreciative that this church opened up their green space for this event. They encourage the church to do it again.
One fellow even sold a car!
This event is one reason why Elkhart is the “I want to live there!” city
