Members of Marysville Buddhist Church have scoured their attics, garages and barns to assemble a unique collection of household goods and fine art to be sold from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at their church, located at 125 B Street in Marysville. Of special interest to art collectors is an extensive offering of walnut sculptures and ceramic pieces by former Yuba College art instructor Gil Azama. Nevada County supporters are also invited to a special “First Pick” preview and sale of merchandise from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday for a $10 donation.

With all proceeds going directly to support Marysville Buddhist Church, the Flea Market is housed in the 4,000 square foot social hall and is packed with a “once in a generation” out-pouring of Asian art, Japanese lacquer-ware, useable household goods, sporting goods and “rusty gold” retrieved from the garages and barns of many valley farms.

Marysville Buddhist Church is a temple within the Jodo Shinshu denomination of Buddhism, the largest Buddhist sect in Japan; and is a member of the Buddhist Churches of America, headquartered in San Francisco, California.



Services have been conducted in Marysville continuously since 1907, when ministers from the temple in Sacramento began holding services in members’ homes. The church complex at 125 B Street in Marysville dates from the early 1930’s and includes the temple hall or hondo, social hall, kitchen and classrooms and the formal Japanese garden.
