green knights toy market

Get ready for the “Toy Trunk Treasures” at the Nottingham Elementary School parking lot on Saturday, April 27th, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM! Knights, this is your chance to reserve a parking spot in the school parking lot and transform your parents’ car into a pop-up store for your old toys and kids-related items. Make sure your toys are in good condition because this sale is all about recycling and learning the value of things. You can set up a table or blanket in front of your car and create colorful posters to attract buyers. Let’s be eco-friendly in choosing decorations! After the sale, you can choose to donate any leftover items to a good cause. It’s not just a fun way to make some pocket money; it’s also a fantastic opportunity to learn about recycling, marketing, and giving back to the community.


Reserve your spot now by sending an email to the Green Knights at or Spaces are limited! See you at the Toy Trunk Treasures Market organized by the Green Knights!
