ATTENTION, for those who arrived here via a Google search:
This is not the website for the 40/8 Veterans Flea Market. This is “Things from Thing Stores,” a blog about shopping at flea markets and thrift stores.
I don’t host these flea markets, so don’t ask me to reserve a space for you or call you back; however, contact information for both the 40/8 and the MojoSales flea markets appears in the post below. Similarly, I am not Goodwill, Salvation Army, Pick of the Litter thrift store, Crossing the Jordan thrift store, Macy’s, the U.S. Government, or the Catholic Church — though I may write about those organizations on occasion.
The granddaddy of all Sonoma County flea markets is the 40/8 Veterans series, held on one Sunday a month from May through September in the parking lot of the Santa Rosa Veterans Building,
Not only is it a huge flea market with both out-of-town vendors and lots of locals, but this flea market also provides substantial scholarships for nursing students at Santa Rosa Junior College. So if you’re making a destination trip, be sure to calendar these flea markets.
The dates are all on Sundays, open to the public from 7:30 am until around 3 pm:
- May 3
- June 14
- July 12
- Aug 16
- September 13
If you want to rent a space, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave your contact information on their phone line at (707) 522-9391. Speak slowly and clearly, and spell everything out, because, as they remind us, these veterans are “old, slow, and hard of hearing.” Yet they put in the effort to hold these big fundraisers simply because veterans appreciate nurses.
Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building, 1351 Maple Ave.,Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa, California
(P.S. The MojoSales Flea Markets happen more frequently, also on Sundays, also at the Veterans Building. Their contact email is MOJOSALES@HOTMAIL.COM.)
