                      KISMET KLAW FLEA MARKET

                                               By Bradlee White


          The 2013 Flea Market benefit for Kismet League for Animal Welfare was a great success.  Held this past June 15-16, we took in over $3000 to spay/neuter and feed the stray and feral cat population in Kismet.  Neighbors donated hundreds of items of good quality for resale as “recycled treasures.”  The Silent Auction of over 18 items brought in $785.  Donors ranged from the Kismet Inn, Surf’s Out, the Kismet Market, Nicky’s Clam Bar, the Long Island Ducks, Garden Sea Landscaping,  Joe Kelly, Buddy Schumacher, Dave Lambie, Patt Villachi, Andrea Wikso, Carolyn Stern, Sam Wood, Joann Agoglia-- whose tiled mirror brought some very spirited bidding -- as did Joe McKeehan’s original Kismet map of 1979.  A raffle of Three Baskets of Cheer replaced the Wagon of Cheer – the wagon lost to Sandy.  Myrna Ussach won the Vodka basket and  Dana DeRusso Hanner won the Tequila and Wine baskets.


          Sandy’s blow to the Camelot deprived of us long-time volunteers Linda Hoffman and Susan Gerritt, but we were thankful for the dedicated hard work of KLAW board members Christine Helbig, Alice Nyburg, Helen Quenzer, Barbara Winter and Jeanne Lieberman and Carol Thomas, Marilyn Puccio, Alice Shultz, Joann’s sister Nancy and niece Olivia and Pete Schmidt.  John Altieri donated a garbage pickup while Andy let us store our discards overnight.


          There were actually very few throwaways.  Over the years, Christine has encouraged us to donate unsold items to several charity thrift shops in Bay Shore, so Monday found Pete S. and I loading up her truck.  Another beneficiary of our leftover treasures was Bay Shore’s Island Rescue Veterinary.  Besides bedding, we were able to give them the wonderful office-sized full-function printer.  I don’t remember who gave that to us, but I hope you come to know how totally thrilled they were.  Island Rescue is the low-cost center where we take our “community” cats for neutering.


          Note to whoever bought the TV wall attachment – you didn’t get the other part of it – the wall part I think.  I have it.
