Is it time to pare down the objects which are slowly taking over your abode? Then you’ll be happy to hear “Rochester’s Junk in The Trunk” is coming back around to the area. Last hosted in Rochester back in June 2013. It runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 23rd in the Farmers’ Market Upper Lot in downtown Rochester.
So venture into that attic of yours and find some treasures or be on the lookout for treasures yourself because as the saying goes, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”
There will be all sorts of items from furniture, antiques, collectibles, dishes, and glassware to accessories. I’ve heard there was a lot of interest in bringing this back to the community and the applications are piling up. The price for one space is $35, and two spaces are $50. Registration forms can be found online HERE.
Oh, and another reminder is that all registrants will be responsible for any additional needs such as tables, chairs, petty cash, etc.
