historic macon Flea Market

Historic Macon Foundation's Flea Market is the longest-running tradition in the organization's history.

For more than 40 years, Historic Macon volunteers have collected, sorted, and priced donations of household items as a fundraiser for Historic Macon's mission. In 2018, the Flea Market raised over $50,000 for Historic Macon and 93¢ of every dollar spent at the Flea Market went directly to HMF's coffers to fund rehabilitation projects.

calling all volunteers

The Flea Market's success is made possible by a dedicated corps of volunteers. Volunteers sort and shine items, pick up donations, and serve as cashiers, among many other duties. Collectively, Flea Market volunteers donated over 1,700 hours to the sale each year.

Volunteer Opportunities

Flea Market Work Days

Throughout the year HMF receives donations to our annual Flea Market. Each week volunteers sort and shine the items as they come in. Join us at our Flea Market Warehouse located on 357 Oglethorpe Street. During prep season, the warehouse is open on Wednesdays from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. For the months of April and May, we will not have regular volunteer days. Wednesday work days will resume in June.

Brew Crew

For those that are unavailable during the weekdays but still want to be involved with our Flea Market (or if you just can't get enough), this is the option for you. The Brew Crew will meet monthly on Saturdays from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm with the option of joining us for lunch and brews afterwards. Check our calendar for the most up to date Brew Crew schedule.

Pick Up Crew

This is our biggest volunteer need. The Flea Market Pick Up Crew is our special team of volunteers that respond to donation calls. Picks are always at a different time. It helps to have a flexible schedule, a truck, and some muscle, but all that's really required is a willingness to serve!

If you think this is the crew for you, please contact Ron Hoppel at 478-737-7022 and you'll be added to the call list.


If interested in volunteering, please email our Director of Engagement, Stafford Gudenrath, sgudenrath@historicmacon.org or call Historic Macon's offices 478-742-5084 ext. 105 to ensure that you stay up to date.


Donate year-round!

Donate your unwanted items to Historic Macon's Flea Market! Donations are tax-deductible and help us raise money to support our mission to revitalize our community by preserving architecture and sharing history. Historic Macon accepts all items except mattresses, electronics, and clothing (but we do accept accessories like purses).

Historic Macon also accepts donations of larger items such as cars, boats, motorcycles and other vehicles. All donations are tax deductible.

Donation drop-off options:

  • To drop off items directly at the flea market warehouse during our work days, bring your donations to 357 Oglethorpe Street. Please consult the calendar above for days/times of work days.

  • To schedule an alternative drop off time, call or email Oby Brown: obrown@historicmacon.org or 478-742-5084 ext. 104.

pick-ups:

We can arrange pick-ups for furniture and heavy pieces as well as large amounts of items. Please contact our vice chair Ron Hoppel at (478) 737-7022 to schedule a pick-up. Please call at least three business days in advance to ensure an available time slot and have your items ready for pick up upon arrival.

Thank you to our Preservation Partner, Trading Post, for assisting with pick-ups!
