Donate, Dine and Shop at the 2017 Saint Sebastian Parish Mega Flea Market

Whether you’re spring cleaning or looking for great bargains – this is the place to be!
The Saint Sebastian Parish Mega Flea Market, one of the best and most well-attended in the diocese, will be held Thursday, June 22: Pre-sale – $5 admission – 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, June 23: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, June 24: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 25: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Saint Sebastian School Gym and Cafeteria at 311 Siebert Road in Ross Township. 
New this year, there’ll be great food on hand for those who work up a serious appetite power shopping all the great flea market treasures! All four days, there’ll be ribs, chicken, pulled pork and more from Perrytowne Drafthouse and Jim’s Smokin’ Que barbeque food truck – serving breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Building on a new tradition, the flea market will be held separately from the 27thAnnual St. Sebastian Parish Festival, scheduled for July 10 to 15 on the parish grounds. Both events support the many ministries offered by the church to the North Hills community, and Saint Sebastian School, which has some 400 students.
All items will be in two very large rooms rather than spread across multiple classrooms and floors as in past years, making browsing easier for customers. Plus there’ll be dedicated entrances and exits, so it should make for faster entry and check-out for shoppers.
Suggested items for donation this year include: small furniture, small appliances, small electronics, baby items, games, dinnerware, sports equipment, books, toys, holiday items, tools, garden accessories and flat screen TVs. Items NOT BEING ACCEPTED include: clothes/shoes, large exercise equipment, magazines or encyclopedias, VCRs, computers/keyboards, cribs/car seats, old glass, old stuffed animals, large Christmas trees and older model TVs.
Donations for the flea market are being accepted at the Saint Sebastian School on:
June 8, June 13 and June 15: 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
June 10 and June 17: 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Someone will be on hand to assist with drop offs.
