ONE person’s trash will become another’s treasure at the Coolbellup Community Association’s Craft and Flea Market.

For just a gold coin donation locals can set up a stall selling anything from household goods and clothes to puzzles, handmade items and produce, while buyers can enjoy free entry.

Coolbellup Community Association’s Pip Brennan said they had been asked many times to hold a flea market event, so they decided it was time to give it a try.

“When the IGA closed and the chemist moved, we wanted to mobilise as a community and show the Coolbellup Shopping Centre that we value the businesses that have been running for years, even decades, providing us with local services,” she said.

“We are a warm and friendly community, and we believe it is important to take action when there is a community need.

“We thought the market would bring a bit of life, and custom, back to the shopping centre.”

The Craft and Flea Market will be on June 8 from 8am to 11.30am inside the Coolbellup Shopping Centre.
