The weather is finally warming up, and D.C. is ready for the return of the District Flea, the spin-off of the Brooklyn Flea that launched last year with food stalls and retailers selling vintage, antique, and handmade goods. Starting this Saturday, the District Flea will be open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 945 Florida Avenue NW.
What to expect? For one thing, we know that vintage vendor Gypsy De La Lune of Post Express Mobile Fashion Truck fame is bringing her adorable camper/mobile boutique to the Flea. Vinyl dealer Mr. Analog is back from last year, as are mid-century modern dealer Modern50 and vintage clothing shops Summer Mizera and Top Shelf Premium Vintage. Meanwhile Navy Ray's will also be there, selling old-school tattoo posters, and 12Pole Designs offers hand-forged jewelry. And Eater DC's got the list of all the food vendors to choose from, from donuts to tacos to ravioli.
Didn't get to the District Flea last year? If you're gearing up for Saturday, take a minute to watch Gypsy De La Lune's video from last time to see what you missed.
