30TH ANNUAL HISTORIC FORT WAYNE FLEA MARKET RETURNS WITH GREAT SHOPPING AND TOURS OCTOBER 6-7

 

            Antique and bargain hunters will find collectibles, contemporary treasures and a variety of arts and crafts at the 30th annual  Historic Fort Wayne Flea Market, taking place Saturday and Sunday, October 6-7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 6325 W. Jefferson (at the foot of Livernois). The event is co-presented by the Detroit Historical Society Guild and the Historic Fort Wayne Coalition.

Returning by popular demand, tours of the Historic Fort Wayne complex will be offered each day.  The guided tours will include the Star Fort built in the 1840s and the Spanish-American War Guard House.

A new attraction for this fall’s event is the Glancy Trains Modular Railroad Club, displaying their amazing toy train layout and promoting the upcoming newly-renovated Glancy Trains exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Secured parking is $5 per vehicle, admission is free for the flea market, and the tours are priced at $3 per person.  Refreshments and baked goods will also be for sale.  Vendors can purchase tables for only $30 or three tables for $75.
