The Dallas Flea is back – and bigger and better than ever. The seasonal pop-up market leaves its original home for a 20,000 square foot space in Dallas’s thriving Trinity Groves neighborhood.
The Dallas Flea was founded in 2009 by interior designer and former lifestyle editor Brittany Cobb, who utilized her keen eye and local relationships to feature up to 100 area artisans under one roof. Offering furniture, home décor, art, clothing, jewelry, children’s items, dog gear, food and more, the quarterly market attracts 5,000-plus shoppers.
This year, Cobb has a lot more up her sleeve. At Trinity Groves, The Dallas Flea has tripled its footprint and doubled its artisan booths in addition to adding a food truck court, live music stage, photo booth and relaxing lounge area.
“We’re thrilled to kick off 2015 with a new home and even more talented artisans featuring their handmade and vintage goods,” said Cobb. “We hope everyone will join us on March 7th as we support and celebrate our vibrant community of local craftspeople.”
A sample of vendors includes Arrow Sarah (custom wood wine carriers), LemonGlaze (not-your-mama’s ceramics), Kristin Miller Jewelry (boho-chic baubles) Tread Studios (watercolor stationery/art prints), Wool and Weave (handmade loom creations), Uptown Country (shabby chic furniture and décor) and Bonjour Mae Mae (children’s fashion accessories).
Besides shopping, attendees can enjoy live music by Jackson Eli, food truck fare, a photo booth and the Dwell with Dignity lounge stocked with for-sale hip seating and home wares that support the local non-profit 100-percent. The first 100 shoppers will receive canvas tote bags.
The Dallas Flea is Saturday, March 7th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2900 Bataan Street – the big neon green building – in Trinity Groves. Entry is $5 (kids 12 and under are free), parking is free and dogs are welcome. For more information, including a list of participating vendors, please visit their website.
