BHS Flea Market is Saturday


This Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Berlin High School is holding a flea market run by BHS senior Brian Thomas, who developed the project to fulfill the new capstone requirement for graduation.

“When I was told to decide what interests I had and what I could do relating to them, creating the Berlin Flea Market was quick to enter my mind,” Thomas said.

The teenager selected the Berlin Animal Shelter as the recipient of funds raised by the flea market.

“It has been years since Berlin has had a community tag sale,” Thomas said.

Vendors pay a fee for a three-parking-space-wide spot. Bigger plots are available. Customers are charged an entrance fee. Those under the age of 16 enter for free.

To become a vendor, email Thomas at berlinfleamarket@gmail.com. For more information, visit facebook.com/berlinfleamarket or berlinfleamarket.webs.com.

“The better the attendance, the better the donation,” Thomas said.

The original budget requested by the Board of Education this year included funding for a Capstone Coordinator to assist Berlin High School with capstone projects. Another project completed this year was a bicycle donation and repair performed by Ahmad Hassan, who collected bikes throughout the month of March for repair, after which they were to be distributed to the homeless.
