Look at Captain’s Vintage gettin’ all eclectic and shit. Just when it seemed like Captain’s Vintage had its hands full replacing R5 Productions as Philadelphia’s resident punk rock flea market provider, they turn around and decide that, while at it, to also attempt to replace another iconic flea market that...
The weekly Roosevelt Mall Flea Market in Northeast Philadelphia (Cottman & The Boulevard) has been canceled for today, October 29, due to rain in the forecast. It will run for the first three Sundays in November—the last one will be November 19th—and will take a four-month hiatus until April of...
From the time I decided to write a post on the just-announced Delaware Punk Rock Flea Market’s (DPRFM) spring 2018 date, Wednesday, to the time I actually began writing the post, yesterday, the date had already been changed. This, after vendor applications had been emailed with the now-wrong date prominently...
As I have alluded to in the recent past, since I now consider this website a private club, my attitude about how it should function has changed quite a bit. I didn’t plan on this and certainly didn’t see it coming but I no longer have much interest in constantly...

Now, since making the transition, I figure the inclusion of those listings would be a nice addition...
Several months ago, I started publishing posts under a new category called “How Much It Sell For?” In these posts I took one item I bought and sold on the secondary market and told its story from initial purchase to final sale. I included in each post where I purchased...
To The Chase For a few weeks, the Annual Hamilton Street Porch Sale in West Philadelphia’s Powelton Village section was listed on this site as taking place on September 9, 2017 (last Saturday). On Saturday morning, I even posted a late reminder that that sale along with the Fairmount Flea...
Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church’s flea markets in South Philadelphia are some of the most interesting in the city. Run very loosely and somewhat secretively by their organizers, they, over the years, have caught on quite profoundly with local shoppers (mainly pickers) and vendors (mainly semi-pros)—especially those from outside the...
