You May have noticed the DSC Crew exploiting our coffee to cafFiends at a few Flea Markets over the past few months. Some may ask themselves, ‘What the hell is that all about?’ Well, we are here to tell you about two of our faves.
Joe and his team at Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market embraces a life-long love of punk rock and hardcore, DIY ethics, the arts, tattoos, copious amounts of coffee, the occasional shot of Jameson and a solid, well-styled quiff.
The mission of founder Joseph Kuzemka was to create a flea market experience in his hometown that is unlike any other, bringing together vendors that touch upon the aforementioned themes while adding the component of gourmet food truck cuisine in a safe, family-friendly shopping environment.
TPRFM is a curated collection of more than 200 vendors from eight states that sell everything from vintage clothing, original artwork, antiques, handmade jewelry, t-shirts, vintage toys, vinyl, bone jewelry, taxidermy, as well as every other sort of interesting curiosity or unique collectible imaginable.
Founded in 2013 with just over 50 vendors and two food trucks, the event has now grown to over 200 vendors, and a dozen food trucks. The Huffington Post named TPRFM one of the Best Flea Markets in America in 2014.
Brooklyn, NY, for some, might drum up images of John Travolta. Others may consider it home to the hipster. Both are correct but not complete. When you think of Brooklyn you should think of it as the birthplace of Oddities Flea Market.
The event takes place at the Brooklyn Bazaar seasonally. Offering three floors of exciting, top of the line purveyors of the odd – there is an endless sea of strange and unusual objects.
As time went, the event grew significantly, inviting new talent along the way. The Oddities Flea Market team has plans to bring their creation on the road to cities all over the country, and possibly even the globe. In fact, the demand for Oddities to go west was in such high demand that, much like the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Oddities market has found a home in LA. The LA Oddities has the same flare for the strange, beautiful and unusual. The LA Weekly said that”New York’s Oddities Flea Market Is a Perfectly Freaky Fit for L.A.”
