Also on 9/20    MAGAZINE MADNESS
This is your last chance of the year to trade off those magazines that have been read, but you just can't seem to get rid of. If you have been looking for a home for all those wonderful articles, recipes, and ideas - we have a solution! Tables for leaving your magazines on will be located in the center of the market, you can take magazines from those tables home with you to read so that they get a second life! All magazines that remain at the end of the day will be donated to the Pink Ladies at MMH. What better way to pass along knowledge and FUN! Please keep all magazines family friendly! There is going to be so much knowledge in the air on Saturday that you might get smart just breathing the air!
