Shipwreck Fest, our sponsored community flea market fundraiser, was a huge success! We had a record of 286 vendors and 489 booths this year and raised an estimated $28,000 for local and international projects. We noticed lots of our Anacortes neighbors got in on the action by setting up their very own yard sales around town. The Anacortes Music Project had different musical acts and food trucks scattered around town as well. 
It was a record-breaking crowd with vendors and restaurants seeing more buyers than usual. Did you know? To be a vendor at Shipwreck Fest, the event starts setting up at 4:00 AM! and goes until 4:00 PM. That's a long day, but totally worth it to get rid of those treasures that have been piling up. Shoppers start as early as 5:30 AM looking to be the first to rummage through the goods.
It's amazing what we can accomplish when hearts and minds work together.
