What kind of vendors fit the bill?
The Flea is a modern day market place that displays and celebrates the very best that Cleveland has to offer. Our goal is to showcase and support locally made/grown products, high quality design, salvage/upcycle/antique/vintage/history. We package our vendors’ amazing work with live music, local food, maker classes, and pop-up dinners to provide shoppers with an all-encompassing experience.
The most successful Cleveland Flea vendors work with forward thinking design and are heavily invested in their craft. The Cleveland Flea is a creative business incubator. In addition to well-curated vintage and salvage collections, we most enjoy working with open-minded businesses that are willing to grow, collaborate, experiment, develop and re-imagine. Vendors with a strong business identity—or those looking to create official branding—tend to flourish at the Flea.
