Flea market Saturday

CRYSTAL FALLS – The Iron County Medical Care Facility Auxiliary has scheduled a Flea Market to be held at the facility’s upper parking lot on Saturday.

The group is very excited to have such a great response to vendor search and will have 30 plus different booths offering a wide selection of items, including jewelry, garden art, quilted items, baked goods ,dog treats, food, collectables and more.

“This event was a result of a brainstorm meeting to change their fund-raising summer event from the Strawberry Social to something that would bring in a bit more money,” stated an auxiliary spokesperson. “With the local berry farm closing, our sponsor passing away and no longer an available outdoor pavilion, it became very hard to get the public involved and make it a profitable event.”

All proceeds from the event go towards birthday gifts for every resident.

With Bass Festival in full swing in Crystal Falls, and the sale being located right off of US 2.

Kevin Upperstrom, a professional music provider, has volunteered to play some “oldies” to keep things festive.

Food will be available throughout the day.

The Auxiliary has been active selling drawing tickets all spring for a beautiful handmade quilt, made and donated by Maxine Hookanson.

The quilt is appropriately named “Bricks and Mortar,” to go with the facility’s recent building project.

The quilt will be drawn at 1 p.m. to one lucky winner and tickets will still be available right up until the drawing. (You do not have to be present to win.)

“So mark your calendars and plan to attend this fun event, bargains are sure to be found,” she adds.
