It was a Clean UP! Flea Market activity inside the subdivision, the venue was at Park 3 Solar Street. From 7am to 3pm, mostly resident vendors sold pre-loved items which included clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, luggage, CDs, books, toys, household items and a lot more.
iVolunteer had two tables. We were divided into two teams. On one table were men’s clothing and miscellaneous items headed by Hazel and Olenny. My partner for the women’s clothing was Mana. She is a one petite lady that I could pass as her mother, except that she has nice big eyes compared to my twinkling small eyes. I’ve met Hazel, Olenny and Mana in the past. They are part of the iVolunteer core team. Continue reading “iVolunteer at Bel Air’s Clean Up Flea Market”
