“The summer Junk in the Trunk was a huge success,” said Stephanie Hellebuyck, Rochester Downtown Development Authority Events Coordinator. “Since the event in June, we’ve had an overwhelming number of participants and attendees ask if we could host another event in the fall, so we are!”

The price for one space is $35, and two spaces is $50. Registration forms can be found online at Payment must accompany your registration form. The deadline to register is Friday, August 30.

All registrants will be responsible for additional needs such as tables, chairs, petty cash, etc. When choosing items for resale it’s important to think antique and vintage, not old and used.
