Creative Toomer fundraiser

Flea market sales are a source of funds for the Toomer Family Reunion. Throughout the month of May they reserve a table at the Berlin, New Jersey, Farmer’s Market. They accept donations of items to sell and, obviously, the more they have, they more money they make. Family members are asked to donate items or donate time working the table. In the past, popular items for sale include costume jewelry, clothing, shoes and cute knickknacks. One year someone donated a kitchen sink. It turned out to be a hot item. People bid on it all day.Shamele C. Jordon, Lindenwold, New Jersey, says they have a great time at the flea market and much of their sales are buying each other’s stuff.
