Popular Carroll Park Fair Scheduled For June 1. Reserve Your Spot Now

The Yearly Carroll Park Fair Has been Scheduled
The neighborhood institution is back! 
 Meet your neighbors while browsing for housewares, books, music, 
clothes, jewelry, antiques and collectibles!
Saturday, June 1
Valentino Ballfield, Court Street between Carroll and President
All proceeds benefit Friends of Carroll Park

Don't wait too long to reserve your spot.  They have a tendency to go fast.
Here is all the important information from the Friends:

The Deal:
Spaces (10’ x 10’) are $35, or $50 if you want a space next to a fence (the advantage of the fence is that you can hang stuff on it).
We provide only the space – you need to provide your own table and chair.
Sorry, but we cannot allow sales of food or drink.
The rain date will be the next day, rain or shine.

How To Reserve:
To reserve a space, you can mail in a check, stop by and pay by check or cash, or use Paypal.

Mailing Payment
Make checks payable to CICP. Send to Gary Dolan, 213 Carroll Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231. Please include a note with your name, phone number, email address and a brief description of what you will be selling (for example, “miscellaneous household goods” or “jewelry” would be fine).

Drop Off
Call 917-574-0745 first to make sure I will be in. 213 Carroll is between Court and Clinton – ring the bell under the stoop. You can also put your payment in an envelope, along with the info requested under “Mailing Payment, and slip the envelope through the basement locked gate, and I will email you to confirm receipt.

To net the full fee through Paypal, we need to get paid a little more. For a $35 space, the Paypal payment is $36.35, and for a $50 space it is $51.80. Use this email address to make

100% of the space fee goes to the Friends of Carroll Park, a non-profit group that has been around for over 30 years. It is run entirely by volunteers. All funds received are spent on the Park, mostly on gardening and free children’s concerts. We’re sort of the PTA for the park, supplementing what the City does.
