The Black Locust Society Swap Shop

If you’re anything like us, chances are you’ve got a garage, house, or closet filled with knickknacks and trinkets from yesteryear that just aren’t getting any love. You’re hoarding, and, c’mon, do you really want the folks over at A&E showing up at your doorstep with an entire camera crew? Didn’t think so.

Local movers and shakers Black Locust Society have created the solution to all your organization woes and garage sale desires with the first ever BLS Outdoor Swap Meet. Taking over the lot behind Kreepy Tiki Tattoo and 5 Points Lounge, the Swap Meet is for everyone and anyone. They want everything. Odds and ends taking up space in your garage? Sure. Gifts from an ex? Sell ‘em off. Vintage clothing or housewares? Definitely.

There will be food trucks and a bake sale on-site, and as a bonus, the brand new 5 Points Lounge will be opening its doors early to assist in quenching the thirst for beer, as well as playing host to the Swap Meet’s after party.

The Swap Meet is free to attend, however if you’d like to be a vendor there is a $20 fee which includes a table. The event starts at 9 a.m. Saturday. Remember, it’s being held in the parking lot behind 5 Points Lounge and Kreepy Tiki Tattoos (2608 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale). For more info, contact [email protected]
