The City Flea- Factory Flea Edition

A couple of weeks ago Emily, Rob and I visited the City Flea, which is normally located downtown, but the week we went had taken a special field trip to Northside to the old can factory....

From the City Flea website:
The City Flea is a place for the city's countless creative minds and skilled hands to share what they are working on or collecting. The flea serves as a venue for social interaction amongst the already burgeoning local community of entrepreneurs, artists, and enthusiasts. It is a new common space for city dwellers who are strolling after brunch, walking the dog, thirsty for coffee, hungry for lunch, on their way to Findlay Market, or just looking for someplace to hang out. It gives people from areas surrounding the city a unique urban experience and opens their eyes to what is going on around town. The goods will speak for themselves once the eyes have arrived.


Here is our day in some pictures I took around the event.
