Bordentown City Cats’ Popular Flea Market & Craft Fair Returns with New & Expanded Line-Up
Bordentown, NJ – Bordentown City Cats’ long-running flea market fundraiser is returning after a two-year hiatus with a new and expanded line-up featuring new and used goods, artisan crafts, cat-centric items and unique vendors.
The popular, local event will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2019, from 8 am to 2 pm, at the Carslake Community Center, located at 207 Crosswicks Street, Bordentown City. All proceeds from the event will benefit the group’s continuing efforts to rescue, foster, adopt and provide medical treatment to Bordentown’s stray and feral cat population.
“We launched this event back in 2003 to raise funds to support our rescue efforts and it grew in popularity for many years,” said Mak Kieffer, one of the group’s founders. “We took a brief break the last two years to take stock of people’s changing interests and now we’re back with a revamped line-up that includes some long-running favorites, like our treasure trove of used finds, as well as new additions like artisan crafts, popular cat-centric goods and other unique vendors. The beauty of the event is that all proceeds go to benefit the control of Bordentown’s stray cat population through the humane efforts of an enlightened community.”
Residents, crafters and business owners can get involved with the event in one of two ways:
1) By renting space to sell new or used goods. The cost to rent a space is $25. Anyone interested must contact the group to reserve a space and pay in advance. Carslake Community Center will be open the night before from 4-7 pm for advance set-up.
2) By donating old items or baked goods that can be sold with the proceeds going to benefit the group; or by donating gift certificates or items from area businesses that can be auctioned off as prizes.
Anyone interested in renting a space, making a donation to the event, or adopting a cat, should email BCC at email@example.com.
Among the many efforts that the flea market supports is the fostering and adoption of Bordentown’s homeless cat population, like Bruce Wayne (pictured below). BCC rescued Bruce from an uncertain fate at the county shelter where he was a shy and frightened boy. After lots of TLC, he has proven to be a real sweetheart who loves affection and gets along well with other cats. He is approximately two years old, neutered and up-to-date on shots, which means he's ready to go to a fur-ever home today.
