Kapiʻolani Community College’s International Club will be hosting its first Flea Market next week from Monday to Tuesday on April 22 and 23 in front of the ʻIlima building from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The market will be accepting gently used items like clothes, electronics, cosmetics, and even musical instruments. Donations are encouraged to be dropped off before the market opens, between 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. However, donations are still welcome during the event hours. Donators will be given snacks for their generosity if they drop-off their items before the market opens.
Food and textbooks are not allowed in order to avoid wasting food and because the KCC bookstore accepts rebuys.
The idea of a flea market stemmed from wanting to give students alternative affordable options for everyday life, while also allowing students to relieve themselves of unwanted or unneeded materials, especially those that are graduating. The International Club hopes to host another flea market next semester to continue helping, though it is unsure as a result of many students in the club leaving due to graduation.
Its Instagram page, @iclub_kcc, is available for any questions about the market and will have further information upon the opening day.
