Tokyo Union Church Flea Market, Omotesando – March 2019 Donate & Buy Gently Loved Items

The annual Tokyo Union Church Flea Market is scheduled for Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2019. Donations can be dropped at the church between March 10-13th by noon (see details below).  If you are looking for English books, kids toys, clothes and home goods, this is the place to shop. We recommend you go as early as possible since people line up for this great flea market. The Tokyo Union Church Flea Market also offers a great opportunity to donate your “gently loved items”. If you are looking for other places to donate or sell your used items please check here.

The Women’s Fellowship of Tokyo Union Church puts on two major fundraisers during the year – the Flea Market in the Spring and the Asian Furniture Sale in the Fall. These fundraisers are the main source of income to support the MOHN (Mission for Our Homeless Neighbors) feeding our homeless neighbors and other charities.
