If you are going to be doing any spring cleaning in the next few weeks this will be a great opportunity to get rid of your gently used items and help the homeless cats and kittens of Good Mews Animal Foundation at the same time.
Good Mews will be holding its annual Spring Flea Market for five consecutive weekends in April and May and started accepting donated items on Saturday, March 22. Items will be accepted through Saturday, May 10. Donation drop off hours are Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sundays Noon to 3 p.m. at the flea market location in the Sandy Plains Exchange Commons (Publix) Shopping Center, 1862 Sandy Plains Road (at Scufflegrit Road), Marietta.
The following items (which must be in good condition and in working order) will be accepted: furniture, arts and crafts, collectibles, office supplies, bed and bath items, TVs, digital cameras, radios, iPods, DVD players, home décor and accessories, kitchen items, garden supplies, personal care items, pet care items, bicycles, small sporting goods, toys, luggage, jewelry, books, movies and music. Good Mews is not accepting any of the following items this year: tools, automotive items, large exercise equipment, mattresses/box springs, drop side cribs, used car seats, fax machines, printers, large appliances, computers, keyboards, overhead light fixtures, ceiling fans, clothing or holiday/Christmas items.
The Spring Flea Market is Good Mews’ largest fundraiser. Funds raised are used to provide shelter, food, and medical care to the homeless cats in the care of Good Mews at their Shelter and in foster homes. This will be the tenth year Good Mews has held a Spring Flea Market. Last year’s event raised over $75,000 for the Good Mews’ kitties.
The sale will begin on Friday, April 25 and will run for five consecutive weekends (Friday through Sunday the first and last weekend, Saturday and Sunday the other weekends) with new merchandise added each weekend. See the flyer for details on the dates and hours of the flea market.
Good Mews is a cage-free, no-kill cat shelter offering an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the Metro Atlanta area. They provide a safe haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed over 6,700 cats in forever homes. The shelter receives no government support and relies solely on donations of time, services, goods and money from its many supporters and local businesses. Good Mews is home to approximately 100 residents on any given day – most of whom reside at the Shelter in Marietta, with some cats residing in foster homes.
