The Annex gets its own flea market

Posted by Aubrey Jax / December 4, 2013

Zazou BisouThe Annex Flea will take over The Centre for Social Innovation this Sunday for the very first time. Echoing the Junction, Parkdale, Gladstone, and Leslieville Flea, this new Annex market will see small vendors hosting carefully curated handmade wares and vintage items. While I'm all for a chaotic, old school anything-goes flea (am I alone here, Toronto?), the holidays come with enough stress as it is and The Annex Flea looks to be of the soothing, precious type - not that they'll be short on treasures.

I really cannot stress enough how much you do not need to hit the mall this year. Have you heard about our own Popify pop-up shop? Have you checked out our craft show round up? You might not even need to leave your neighborhood - though if you're not Annex-based, it looks like you'll want to made the trip up to Bathurst and Bloor this weekend. On Sunday shoppers will find snacks, artwork, and hand-mades crafted with local materials from Avani Creations, Parade Vintage, Son of A Woodcutter, Foodbenders, Province Apothecary, Zazou Bisou, Sprouts Press, Eli's Body Shop, FoldIt Creations, and many more. See the full vendor list below or check out their website for more info.

Can't tell if you're being serious, or just an asshole?

Clearly just an AHOLE that woke up alone and angry. No where in the article does it state its original. No Bartering is not an original concept.

Nope this was a one off Sunday, but hopefully they will be announcing a second flea or a series in the new year.
