Wolliker's donation benefits two Waldoboro nonprofits
Waldoboro — In a continued effort to benefit their hometown community, the owner and participants of Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies have issued donation checks to two more deserving nonprofits: the Waldoborough Historical Society and the Waldoboro Women’s Club Scholarship Fund.
Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies is a monthly flea market and bazaar at the VFW Hall on Mill Street in Waldoboro. Wolliker’s owner Sally Lobkowicz, a Waldoboro resident, offers a minimum $50 monthly donation, often combined with other enhancements, to help support area non-profits.
“The nonprofits we support on a are welcome to use our venue to sell their own items and/or to distribute informational or fundraising literature,” Lobkowicz said in a news release.
The June Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies benefited the Waldoboro Women’s Club Scholarship Fund with an $82 donation, part of it from items provided by the Women’s Club and sold at Wolliker’s by Lobkowicz. The July Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies benefited the Waldoborough Historical Society with a $50. donation.
The opening Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies in May benefited the Waldoboro Food Pantry with a $50. donation.
Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies is open on the last Sunday of the month from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., which makes Sunday, Aug. 31 the next open date for the flea market and bazaar. A beneficiary for that date will be announced soon.
Lobkowicz hopes to build Wolliker’s Waldoboro Whimsies into a venue that will feature a variety of craft, artistic, collectible items and more. “What we’re really looking for are unique, one of a kind, items that our shoppers won’t want to leave without,” Lobkowicz said. “We invite sellers to give us a call early to make reservations; we’ll have enough room for everyone, until we fill up.”
Local musicians are also welcome to contact Lobkowicz. “We would like to welcome local musicians and are happy to trade a table where they can sell their CD’s in exchange for some music to enhance our guest experience,” she said.
Lobkowicz is excited that the VFW hall will allow the flea market and bazaar to be weather proof. “Now folks will have a fun place to check out even if it’s raining,” she said.
The Waldoboro VFW Hall is located on Mill Street between the Bremen Road (Route 32) and Jefferson Street.
