Our Town: Multicultural center hosting first flea market


The Palestine Multi-Cultural Center will hold its first Flea Market Day on Saturday.

“Our store will be open to the public featuring sales and door prizes. There also will be vendors selling crafts and other items, food and drinks,” Director Betty Nickerson said. “We are encouraging people to come out and get to know each other. It's going to be a fellowship.”

The center also will be selling clothing and miscellaneous household items inside the building.

The event will be held from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the center, located at 1402 W. Oak St.

Vendor spaces are available for a $10 donation by calling the center at 903-729-3488 or 903-221-5231.
