For many years, we've organized a large flea market stand in downtown Bonn on several dates a year. Under the name "Edel & Trödel" we sell books, clothes, handicrafts, porcelain and other household goods for a good cause and always have fun!
The proceeds go 100% to the peace work of the FNF: in Bonn, for example, for our peer mediation project in Bonn schools, for the commemoration of the first Nobel Peace Prize winner Bertha von Suttner, or for actions, demos and events around the topics of peace, disarmament and gender.
All helping hands can choose a piece of the flea market at the end as a thank you :).
The flea market will take place this year on a total of three dates, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 04:00 pm + construction and dismantling:
Sat, 07. May // Sat, 04. June // Sat, 03. September
You can find a short report and a photo of our last flea market in July 2021 here.
Some of the dedicated women are already a bit older, so we are searching for young, strong, helping hands to help us with the set-up (from 9 am), the sale (between 9 am and 4 pm) and the dismantling (until 5 pm). The deployment times you can flexibly arrange with us.
Women, men, people of all genders are cordially invited: Evereyone who can help for one, two or more hours are welcome!
We are also looking for a larger car for the transport of the goods.
Almost nothing! Just a good mood and a desire to lend a hand. And it would be good if you could help the older women, for example, when carrying the heavier goods.
Everything is on site, you do not need to bring anything. Only a mouth-nose protection because of Corona would be good. We align ourselves on site according to the then valid Corona measures.
But if you have a car or a cargo bike for transport available, please let us know.
You need to sign up for this project 5 day(s) in advance
We are a non-profit association and have been based in Bonn since 1996. Our motto is: "Wars are made by people. So is peace." And we act accordingly! We organise lectures and actions, interfere politically and are also very practically active for peace, here in Bonn and nationwide.
