Flea Market at Lockwood Mathews, Sept. 15

Norwalk, CT - If you are on the hunt for a treasure this fall and not sure where to begin your search, the Lockwood Mathews Mansion in Norwalk’s Mathews Park is making your quest much easier! On Sunday, September 15, 2019, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will hold its 12th annual Old-fashioned Flea Market. This event attracts people from Connecticut and beyond and has a wide variety of dealers from New England and New York displaying their antiques, crafts, special edibles, and other treasures. Everyone is bound to find something to make his or her day!
This popular annual event offers flea market enthusiasts some of the best deals in Connecticut and an opportunity to hunt, bargain, and buy at more than 70 booths selling antiques, repurposed furniture, collectibles, jewelry, crafts, household items, clothing, toys, and specialty farm-to-table items. 
An added highlight for flea market sleuths is the White Elephant table managed by the Lockwood Mathews Mansion featuring items generously donated by supporters and offered to the public for as little as $1! And, if you have never seen the museum, this is a good time to check it out on one of the special $5 mini tours being offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Museum Shop will also be open for business and will feature new merchandise and a broad selection of gift ideas including fabric totes, monogrammed dishtowels, designer jewelry, elegant scarves, books, and other museum-centered accessories.
If you work up an appetite from treasure hunting, no worries, trendy food trucks on the scene include Cousins Maine Lobster, recently featured on Shark Tank; The Chamo, serving outstanding Venezuelan beach cuisine; and Lucky Dog Food Truck featuring specialty hot dogs. Another and unexpected bonus of this event is a classic and antique car show featuring the Connecticut Seaport Car Club that is sure to entertain shoppers of all ages. 
All proceeds will benefit the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. The Museum has donated several booths to area nonprofits that will share their message and mission with attendees.
