'76' Auction & Flea Market

NEW VENUE September 16th, 2017!  RAIN OR SHINE!

  The RIAFMRS conducts an annual flea market and auction as our primary fund raiser on the 3rd Saturday in September.  It is often referred to as "The .76 Auction".  This income funds all of the repeater maintenance and new projects we may be working on.  We sell the usual snacks of hot dogs, soda, coffee and donuts, and sometimes a tasty breakfast.  We also hold a 50/50 raffle and give away door prizes so our happy customers can go home with some goodies.  This long standing event is always well attended and is a local favorite for socializing with old friends, and of course, making new ones. 

NEW VENUE

  The 2017 Annual Fall Flea Market & Auction will be held at the Columbus Club of Lincoln, 171 Jenkes Hill Road, Lincoln, RI on the 3rd Saturday of September.  This is an outdoor event, but the auction will be held inside.  We are easily accessible, only 0.7 miles away from the North Central Airport terminal, and 2.4 miles off Rt. 295.

Flea Market opens around 8:00 AM and spaces are $5.00 each.  Free admission for buyers!  Spaces are available on a first come first served basis.  Please bring your own tables to guarantee a place to set up.
Auction begins at 11:00 AM and usually runs until about 1:00 PM.
