Healy House to Host Flea Market This Saturday
The museums are all open and busy as the Leadville summer tourist season gets underway. To add to the fun for both visitors and locals, the Healy House is hosting “Ye Olde Flea at Healy.”
The event will take place from 9:30 – 4 p.m., this Saturday, June 15 on the Healy House Museum Lawn.
“We have something for everyone,” said Maureen Scanlon, Director of the Healy House when describing the types of vendors that will have booths. A total of 25 vendors including locals and other area artists and crafts people will have their goods for sale in booths where customers can engage with and buy straight from local makers, creators and collectors!
“We will have a garden center, beetle-kill furniture vendors, and a book-signing booth by local authors Gretchen Scanlon and Roger Pretti,” added Scanlon.
The event will also be supported by volunteers from History Colorado who will help with logistics like parking, but also have an information booth for those interested in learning more about the program. Oh, and the Healy House Museum and Dexter Cabins will be open for tours as usual.
The open-air market will meander throughout the museum’s gardens, as well as along the part of Harrison Avenue that crests to Capitol Hill, adjacent to the museum.
The market is free and open to the public. Come and see if you can find something you can’t live without!
