The Salvation Army Flea Market & Bazaar Invites Sellers Space for Saturday, September 20

salvation-army-logoThe Salvation Army Porter County Corps Community Center invites the public, local businesses and families to have an opportunity to sell their wares (new or used) at The Salvation Army frontal property along Highway 6 in South Haven. Last year we had hundreds of people stop by to look and buy new and used goods from local vendors and family yard sales. This is a good way to clean out your closets and garages (before the snow comes), get some extra cash and recycle your material items instead of just throwing them away. Everyone is invited to enjoy the day with shopping and selling!

The Harvest Festival Flea Market Bazaar will take place at The Salvation Army on US Highway 6 (corner of Capitol Rd. one block west of Hwy 149) in South Haven, Indiana on Saturday, September 20, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Bazaar will help The Salvation Army raise money for community ministry by having vendors donate $20 for each area of space (10’ X 10’). The vendor, business or family can promote, demonstrate and sell their product to anyone who visits. This free event for the people wanting to buy will get to see many new items, arts/crafts and used products available by Porter County businesses, local merchants and residents.

Contact our office and ask for Kathy, before Friday, September 19th, (noon) to complete an application for one or more 10' X 10' selling spaces. Please provide your own merchandise and supplies (e.g. tables, signage, workers, etc.). The items and sellers must adhere to Salvation Army policy guidelines (no offensive or illegal material or presentations please). There will be a food vendor selling sloppy joes, chili cheese chips and drinks conducted by the SA Men.

“The Salvation Army continues to be committed to serving the needs of our local community and we are thankful to the many generous residents of Porter County, Indiana with their past support of The Salvation Army. As needs increased throughout the year, caused by a troubled economy, we look to our community to help us meet our goal of serving the needy and glorifying God…,” said Major Jon Welch, Porter County Corps Officer. “…and I am certain that Porter County people will keep helping us fulfill our commitment to serve suffering humanity in the days ahead.” he added. "Thanks to you, we save lives!"

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church, has been supporting those in need in Jesus name (presently in over 124 countries) without discrimination since 1865. Nearly 33 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. About 82 cents of every dollar raised is used to support those services in nearly 9,000 communities nationwide. For more information, go to
