Five years ago, the NIU Convocation Center started the Convo’s Colossal Clean Sweep to bring the community together during tough economic times. The Clean Sweep has been a success; however, the name has not. Vendors and the community felt as though the name only caters to garage sales and not to the flea market and antique market segments. This year they will be changing the name to include flea market and garage sale.
So get ready because the 5th annual Convo’s Clean Sweep Flea Market and Garage Sale which will be this Friday and Saturday, April 19 and 20th.
