Featured Fleas

by Nina Myers McCammon

Happy Friday, guys! Hope everyone's up to something fun. Just a reminder that on any given weekend, there are loads of flea markets happening all over the country, which you can find with this handy flea finder. Below are three noteworthy ones happening this weekend in the Catskills (NY), Columbus (OH), Providence (RI), and Los Angeles (CA), respectively, after the jump.

The Graham & Co's first annual Phoenicia Flea
Date: Saturday July 26th & Sunday July 27th
Time: Noon-8pm
Location: The Graham & Co. hotel, 80 NY 214, Phoenicia, NY
What it is: The Graham & Co., a small 20 room hotel in Phoenicia, is inviting a well-edited group of makers from the Catskills, Hudson Valley, and beyond to set up on their property for the weekend to celebrate small businesses and local trade. I'm hoping it's the first of many, because the roster looks amazing. To name a few: Hudson Made, Rebecca Peacock, Andrew Molleur, Wishbone Letterpress, Nina Z, Field Guide Design, Coppersea Distillery, Fruition Chocolate, Materia Designs, Kingston Wine, Southdown Coffee, Mavis Studio, Brooklyn Oyster Party and Small Room Collective.
