Flea Market Donations – what we can & can’t accept

What we CAN & CAN’T accept

The Turramurra Community Flea Market is a mammoth event – we try our best to present everything donated for sale, however, sadly we receive items which are not in saleable condition, or that due to safety regulations or available space we cannot sell. The disposal of these items is a significant issue for the Flea Market, so please consider what you send & please keep like items together for ease of sorting and display.
