Saint Paul's Church Prepares for Annual Flea Market

The Saint Paul Roman Catholic Church’s Spring Flea Market has taken place for more than 20 years in East Norriton.

Saint Paul Roman Catholic Church, located at 2007 New Hope St. in East Norriton, will hold its annual Spring Flea Market, April 13, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Saint Paul Women’s Guild, a service-based fellowship made up of church parishioners, organizes the flea market.

According to Women’s Guild member Denise Gauntlett, the church has held the flea market for well over 20 years. Guantlett, who has been the co-chair of the event for the last 14 years, said that the event has always been popular.

“We have had vendors come back from the first year I did this to this year,” Guantlett said. “And, we have very good foot traffic.”

The flea market is typically held in the church’s parking lot with good weather, and inside the Father Murphy Hall, located in the school building.

According to Guantlett, an average of 45 vendors come out to the event each year.

“We have a little bit of everything,” Guantlett said. “There will be a multitude of flea market items.”

She said such items may include:

  • Jewelry
  • Clothing
  • Infant clothing
  • Craft items
  • Furniture
  • Decorations (holiday-related)
  • Glass items
  • Kitchen items
  • Electronics

Saint Paul’s will also have a White Elephant table, topped with items donated by the parishioners. According to Guantlett,  all proceeds from the Spring Flea Market benefit the maintenance of Saint Paul Roman Catholic Church and the church community.


Spaces are still available for the April 13 flea market. Spaces cost $15 each, and vendors may rent an 8-foot table for $5.

For vendor or more information, contact Denise Gauntlett at 610-825-7569.
