If you haven't heard, Bloominglabs' lease has been terminated. We've known this would eventually happen, and as the City is going to start work on the Switchyard Park, we need to be out by the end of December.

Luckily, we've been looking for spaces for a while and have located a couple of possible candidates but nothing is firm yet. We've started a GoFundMe to help out with the costs of moving to a new space. You can find that campaign at:

https://www.gofundme.com/bloominglabs-needs-a-new-space

Feel free to spread this around. Your donations are appreciated and are tax deductible.

And if you know of a cheap space that is at least 3,000 sq ft in size, get back to us. And feel free to email contact@bloominglabs.org with any questions.

Thanks, again, to the Bloominglabs community. We couldn't do what we do without the support of all of you!

Bloominglabs will be on the Hoosier-to-Hoosier Resale Trail again this year!  Members will be hosting out annual flea market, featuring an assortment of electronics, tech manuals, and household items.  Weather permitting, we'll also fire up the grill!

The more official version:
This Saturday (8-22) is the Bloominglabs Flea Market and Hoosier-to-Hoosier community sale. A number of locations across Bloomington are having flea markets on this same day for the incoming students. The Bloominglabs Flea Market will be open from 8am to 5pm along with an open house. There will be electronics, computer parts, and household items for sale by members and friends of Bloominglabs. 

If you’ve wanted to check us out but couldn’t make it to our weekly public nights then this is a great opportunity! We will have free popcorn, and we will have drinks and burgers for sale as well.
