LINCOLN PARK — The Lincoln Park Historical Society and Museum will host a Flea-Arts Market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 21 on the museum grounds, 1335 Southfield Road.
A variety of local vendors with vintage, collectible, and arts and crafts goods will be featured.
The event is designed to raise money for several museum projects, including the continued restoration of the 80-year-old, four-sided clock from the Lincoln Park Sears store, the development of a new Lincoln Park History Coloring book for elementary-level studies, and a large-scale replication of the historic New Deal-era mural by artist Zoltan Sepeshy which once hung in the old Lincoln Park Post Office.
The original 5-foot-by-14-foot mural “Great Lakes Fisherman,” which since 1967 has been housed at the Beaver Island Marine Museum in northern Michigan, is being restored this fall. Upon completion, a mural-sized replica will be created and installed in the Lincoln Park museum in the mural’s original location in the lobby.
The museum also is looking to acquire a 1950s-era juke box in which to “exhibit” some of its collection of over 200 45 rpm records dating to the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, received in a private donation earlier this year.
Disc jockey Adam Stanfel will add to the festivities mixing it up from noon to 3 p.m. Stanfel spun tunes for the opening of the museum’s MC5 50th anniversary exhibit in 2015.
The Historical Society also will hold a bake sale inside the museum, where one of the museum’s own merchandise booths will be located. A second booth will be outside on the grounds with the rest of the vendors.
Vendors still may participate by calling the museum for information and vendor fees, at 313-386-3137 or by email at [email protected] Vendors may sign up until Sept. 18 or until all spaces are filled.
