Saturday, April 8, 2017

8:00 AM – Mid-Afternoon

 

As we begin the 2017 spring season we’re excited to start a 2nd Chance Auction, Flea Market & Car Corral – New for this Year!

Join us for an auction and flea market area dedicated to automotive related tools, parts & automotive collectible items.    A car corral will be available onsite – spring is the perfect time to transition ownership of those classic vehicles!

Many folks remember and ask about the AACA PA Dutch Region Auction that used to be held here.   This is a new event that will be similar in set-up to this long time favorite.

Flea Market & Car Corral open to the public beginning @ 8:00 AM.    Auction begins @ 11:00 AM. The event will be held in and around the storage buildings behind the AACA Museum.

There is no fee to attend this event. Breakfast, lunch and snack items will be available for purchase.

We’re looking for folks interested in selling vehicle parts, tools and collectible items.    Vendor Booth fee is $10.00 for a space.    All vendors will be responsible for their own space set up needs – i.e. back of a vehicle | tent, tables, chairs, etc.      Flea Market vendor booth set up is from  6:30- 8:00 AM.    If you require more time for set up or have specific questions, please contact Nicole at 717-566-7100 ext. 107 or email NPressel@AACAMuseum.org.
