A massive range of goods will be available including but not exclusive to enamel ware, linens, fabrics & various household items, with many items sourced from Zeeland. Locally sourced products include furniture, collectables, books, clothing, records/cds/dvds, jewelery, prints and paintings, bric-a-brac and memorabilia.
