Skip the stress of big box retail this December, and buy local at the city’s most unique seasonal shopping experience.
After spending three years hosting modern day flea markets at rotating venues around Vancouver, the Eastside Flea is finally bringing their one-of-a-kind market experience to the North Shore. For two days this holiday season, the East Side Flea will be hosting more than 50 vendors at the beautiful and historic Pipe Shop with a holiday market unlike any other.
Inspired by the Brooklyn Flea in New York City, the Eastside Flea isn’t your typical craft fair. You can expect to find a mix of local handmade items, beautiful craftsmen goods, vintage clothing, collectibles, artisanal foods and more.
Just a few of the items you’ll find on December 5 and 6 are fantastic soaps by the slice, the best handpicked vintage clothing and collectibles, locally made pet products and beautiful handcrafted jewellery. The market is designed to have something for everybody, and with such a wide variety of vendors you’ll be sure to pick up something perfect for everyone on your list, and probably a few things for yourself too.
In addition to over 50 vendors, you can enjoy live music and carollers, refreshments by Counterpart Coffee and many door prizes. The event also coincides with the annual North Vancouver Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Shipyards December 5 so come swing by the market for some holiday shopping and unique finds and festivities.
