Help me with a catchy name for our charity rummage/craft sale
August 19, 2011 8:38 AM   Subscribe

I'm organizing a benefit sale for Spay and Neuter Syracuse (SANS), a low cost non-profit spay neuter clinic. It will be held in donated space in a local mall, for one day. Probably Sept 10, though we are trying to get a later date. We are planning on selling nicer newer rummage sale type stuff - books, gift items, crafts. We need a fun name that will help people understand what it is. I had thought about Flea Market for Cats and Dogs but that isn't quite it. Can you help?

Spay and Neuter Kansas City volunteer here. SNKC considered names that played with the concept of the Flea Circus. They decided to go with something like "Fleas and Thank You," which fell short in my estimation.

There was talk about selecting a shelter animal to act as a mascot and naming events for the mascot. You know, "Captain Carl's Flea Market for Cats and Dogs," and have an appearance by Captain Carl himself. Something like that.

If I heard "Flea Market for Cats and Dogs", I'd think it was a flea market selling pet items. If, on the other had, I heard "Flea Market to Benefit Cats and Dogs", I'd get it.

Not sure about the potential legalities, but what about something playing on Bob Barker's old signoff. Like: The Price is Right - Help Control the Pet Population at Spay and Neuter Syracuse's Benefit Sale!

Thanks to everyone for the responses. We are probably going with Flea Market to Help Cats and Dogs. Neu-ter-You cracked me up.
