MONROE - Piles of books and vinyl records, aged furniture, dishes and lamps are some of the items that will be placed on table tops or in booths at the Green County Pickers Antique and Flea Market on Saturday. The organization will celebrate its fifth year hosting the event. Co-chairman Susan Konopacki said when plans began half-a-decade ago to jumpstart the flea market as a fundraiser for the Green County Fairgrounds, where the event is hosted bi-annually, it was for children throughout the community, especially those in 4-H. "It's to keep the fair going for the kids, that's what it's all about," Konopacki said.
