Yes, in a shameless ploy we're plugging ourselves, tooting our own horn, puffing up our chest, patting ourselves on the back--because we're just downright giddy about winning Rhode Island Monthly's 2013 Editors' Pick for best Vintage Market. Ok, so wait a minute...who was the competition? Well, we're not quite sure, but we're not complaining either! This is great for The Flea and even greater for our vendors who deserve a statewide audience for their keen, vintage fashion sense, their innovation and creativity, and their unabashed love of recycling and upcycling, reducing and re-purposing, making new things from old things, rescuing and salvaging, reusing and renewing. Thank you, Flea vendors, food trucks, patrons and volunteers, for making the market an early success and making it just so much fun to Flea!
