Are you curious? Inquisitive? Adventurous?
Then the Curious Flea is the event for you.
The Curious Flea is a social flea market…a new way of ‘fleaing’ . We’ve curated an incredible collection of vendors selling spectacular wares ranging from antique to Mid-Century Modern to 50′s kitsch to upcycled furniture and decor. This isn’t your usual bargain basement flea market, but rather a treasure hunter’s dream.
Many flea markets can feel gloomy and transactional. Customers get in and get out as quickly as possible. Bo-ring.
Our vendors are pretty incredible. They collect, rebuild, re-imagine, re-inspire and renovate their items out of a love for vintage. Some even create new items using old fashioned techniques and trades.
We started this endeavour two years ago, and we want it to grow even more. We’re thrilled that Bonnie from Bits and Keys & Bayoush Mengesha from Devi Arts Collective will be taking the helm of the flea and helping it grow and flourish.
What makes Curious Flea extra curious?
- New Westminster. New Westminster is a city steeped in history. We are ‘the Royal City’…given our name by Queen Victoria herself. As we’re grounded in our history, we know a thing or two about antiques, vintage and all things cool. Curious Flea will be held in support of the vendors on Antique Alley (make sure you check out the Antique Alley table) and we are encouraging the Flea market attendees to go shop the Alley to complete their day. We also have other local vendors from Uptown, Downtown and Quayside showcasing their goods.
- Fabulous Food. Most flea markets are in dusty halls, church basements – Ours is not. What more can we say? Award-winning restaurants. Music. Boardwalk. Park. Washrooms.
