MCCS Flea markets turn trash into cash

Date Posted: 2006-04-21

Moving season is just around the corner, and dozens of military families are looking for ways to dispose of unwanted or unneeded household goods, clothing, toys and just plain ol’ junk.

Marine Corps Community Services says it can help. MCCS offers many flea markets at various island locations each and every weekend. An official says there are lots of good reasons to use MCCS flea markets, pointing out those excess items can readily be turned into much wanted cash. A second positive point, he says, is flea markets cut down on trash problems by goods being recycled instead of discarded.

Flea markets take place at Camps Courtney, Kinser and Foster, rotating locations on a weekly basis. Camp Courtney’s flea markets are the second, fourth and fifth weekends—both Saturday and Sunday—of each month. The flea markets at Camp Courtney operate 7am to 10pm. Camp Foster hosts a flea market the first weekend of each month, while Camp Kinser has one the third weekend of each month. Both Kinser and Foster flea markets are open noon to 3pm.

Sellers pay a $15 fee to operate, and must set up their booths an hour before the gates open to the public. MCCS says a special reduced vendor fee is offered to those with PCS orders. Only SOFA ID holders can operate booths, but the flea markets are open to everyone on the island. An official says anyone may purchase used goods, but any unauthorized sale of goods, such as “black marketing”, are prohibited.

Details about flea markets are available from MCCS, 645-5829.
