The Family Museum Offers a Place for Buyers and Sellers to Meet

Bettendorf — Closets filled with toys and games. Beds hiding sports equipment and puzzles. Kids acquire mountains of stuff through the years, and the Family Museum offers a perfect place to sell these under-used and forgotten items: the annual Young Entrepreneur’s Market. This year the Market will be held on Saturday, June 9 from 8:30-11:30 AM. It’s free to shop, but sellers must be pre-paid and pre-registered by Wednesday, June 6.

This event is designed to teach young entrepreneurs about sales, marketing, and merchandising. Participants are welcome to sell their artwork, crafts, toys, sports equipment, clothing, costumes, or any other gently used items at this popular “garage” sale. This is a great opportunity for kids to clean out their toy boxes, empty their closets, and sell the things they no longer play with or have outgrown. It’s also a great venue for kids to sell crafts, artwork, and other handmade items.

The Young Entrepreneur’s Market is open to all youth ages 5-14. Sellers must be accompanied by an adult. Each parking space is $10. Participants must be pre-registered by Wednesday, June 6 to attend. For more information or to reserve a space, call Julie Klein at (563) 344-4170.
