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...

True, they were already getting free advertisement but with a scrawny listing with limited information. Now, since they filled out...
