Trinkets and Treasures is back for another year and ready for you to find that perfect little something that you have been looking for. I headed over to the Folkert Community Hub to chat with Jo Anne Hoekenga one of the members of the Women's Division Chamber of Commerce. This is the 12th annual event that will be held on Friday September 15th from 9am-5pm and Saturday September 16th from 9am-3pm at the Folkert Community Hub which is located at 640 Seminole Rd. In Norton Shores.
This year the Women's Division has some new non-profit partners this year for the 2017 season. The kids Food Basket, North Muskegon Fire Department and the Muskegon Fire Fighters Local 370 will receive equal shares of the net proceeds from this sale. Each of these organizations will be present at the sale both days volunteering their time to help as it is one of the requirements to receive the money. Last year the three organizations that were partnered with each received a check for $7415.17.
I would also like to mention the sponsors that are going to be helping out this year. Redi Rental of Muskegon has lent all of the tables for use during the sale, Schuitema Moving & Storage graciously brought all of the items from storage to the warehouse for the sale (to truckloads full), JC Penny has lent their sale signs and some of the racks and holders to display items on and lastly Meijers of Norton Shores has provided shopping carts for you to use during the sale.
There will be something new this year called the Early Bird Sale which will be on Friday starting for just a $5 donation. While I was at the Hub I was able to see some of the work that was being done to get ready for all of you lovely people to attend. The ladies that have been working on setting up for this event have done an amazing job at making your shopping experience as easy as possible. This warehouse is set up like a store so you will be able to know exactly where to go to find what you're looking for. Stop by and check it out, take it from me you don’t want to miss these deals.
