First Frog Market to allow campus to sell belongings, provide services

It’s out with the old and in with the new at TCU’s first annual Frog Market, which Programming Council expects to be TCU’s largest garage sale ever.Students can visit the market from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 28 at Frog Fountain.

Kit Lipscomb, a freshman Programming Council member, is organizing the event.

Lipscomb said the TCU Frog Market will be a non-profit event open to all students, faculty and organizations who would like to sell their goods or services.

“I encourage anyone to participate because it will be a great way to sell things and make money or just promote an organization,” Lipscomb said.

Lipscomb said anyone can apply to host a table by April 21 at the Student Center Information Desk or the SGA office, and the cost of renting a table is $7.

If a student or faculty member would like to sell an individual item, he or she can submit the item to a separate table.

Students can also come to the event to eat and watch Baby Woodstock, a traveling group of six bands.

“If you don’t want to buy or sell at the event, come for the food and the great music,” Lipscomb said.
