Farewell To The Wise Hall Eastside Flea February 13 & 14

11 Feb

EastsideFleaThis weekend is your last opportunity to check out the Eastside Flea at the Wise Hall at 1882 Adanac Street. Why’s that you ask? Well the Eastside Flea has found a permanent home in the historic Ellis Building on Main Street. As this is a rather neglected building, organizers are looking for a bit of help to spruce up their new digs. They have started an Indiegogo campaign this week to raise $10,000 to bring back some life into this beautiful old building.  They also have some big plans for this new space. They hope to have 15+ artisan studios, a regular ESF marketplace that will host over 50 vendors, a platform for DIY workshops and demos as well as an outdoor courtyard for food trucks and community BBQs.  If you wish to help them breath life into this cool space, visit their Indiegogo campaign.

If you wish to check out the Eastside Flea this weekend, you will find over 60 vendors on both Saturday, February 13th and Sunday, February 14th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  They will have collectibles, gift cards, handcrafted and vintage jewellery, vinyl records, plants, locally-made body care and a whole host of gift items for that special Valentine.  If you get hungry from all that shopping, they have you covered.  Tacofino food truck will be on hand serving up their amazing tacos outside both days and Kahve & Chai will be indoors serving their signature spicy chai, coffee and tea.  Admission is $3.00. Stop by and support some great local vendors.
