Are you ready? This Saturday, January 22 signals the grand opening of the MV Big Flea Shop and Drop – the Best Thrift Store in Alexandria!
The brainchild of Del Ray resident Joseph LaMountain, the MV Big Flea is a yearly fundraiser for the Mount Vernon Community School PTA.
Started just three years ago, the “Big Flea” has grown into an almost year round extravaganza with permanent storage for donations, an Ebay site, corporate partners and a host of volunteers. Last year the Big Flea raised over $25,000, exceeding all expectations.
And the MV Big Flea Shop and Drop? Your chance to donate and buy, all at the same time! The storage space for the Big Flea doubles as a store where you can browse and buy any of the donated items. It’s cash and carry only so be prepared.
The Shop and Drop, at 719 North St. Asaph, will be open this Saturday, January 22 and Saturday from 2:00 – 4:00pm and Saturday, February 12.
Then, starting in March, the Shop and Drop will be open every Saturday until the big, one day sell off on April 30th at the Mt. Vernon Community Center.
What a great opportunity to support a neighborhood school and clean out your basement all at the same time!
And if you need a new house for all the bargains that you’ll find at the Shop and Drop, give me a call at 703.927.4554 and we’ll do a bit more shopping.
