Free admission to event at Mathews Park

On Sunday, September 18, 2022, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will hold its 15th annual Old-fashioned Flea Market in Mathews Park, Norwalk, CT.

The Mansion’s event will offer bargain hunters and Flea Market enthusiasts an opportunity to spend a day outdoors, rummaging through a variety of merchandise to find unique and rare items or the perfect collectible among the many vendors’ booths displaying antiques, repurposed furniture, jewelry, crafts by local artisans, household items, clothing, toys, and specialty farm-to-table items.

The Mansion will manage a White Elephant Table and sell items generously donated by supporters that run the gamut from gently-used to upcycled. A classic and antique car show will return to the park and feature vintage and antique automobiles for memorable selfies, courtesy of the Connecticut Seaport Car Club.

This year, the event will have a variety of outstanding and tasty delights from local food trucks, including Venezuelan beach cuisine from The Chamo; tacos and authentic Mexican food from El Placerito Tacos; wings and things from S W A T; ice cream treats from South Norwalk Ice Cream Co.; breakfast and lunch bites from Makin’ Waves; and authentic Maine lobster from Cousins Maine Lobster.

The Museum will be open for $5 Mini Tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which includes viewing the new exhibition, Making It Last: Sustainable Fashion in Victorian America, and the Museum Gift Shop will feature new merchandise and a broad selection of gift ideas including fabric totes, monogrammed dishtowels, designer jewelry, elegant scarves, books, and other museum-centered accessories.

All proceeds will benefit the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum’s educational and cultural programs.
