Cleveland Flea

The winner of the Parkers and Great Lakes tasting event tickets did not contact me by the deadline, so it's time to select another winner using random.org. The new winner is...comment #9- fmayse. Congratulations! Please email me by Friday to claim your prize, or another winner will be selected.

What did you do this weekend? We packed a lot in. My family was visiting from NY, and we were go-go-go all weekend long. We spent a lot of time getting ready for our Browns tailgate, but I wanted to make sure that we also showed off our city a bit while they were here. Saturday was this month's Cleveland Flea, and it was my first time attending. Have you been yet?

It was held from 9AM - 4PM in the parking lot next to Sterle's, located on East 55th Street. When we arrived around 3PM, there were still a lot of people there and street parking was a tad hard to find. But, there was a lot to see and do once we got there. I enjoyed walking through the vendor booths, checking out the vintage goods...
I absolutely love decorating our house, and there were so many booths dedicated to housewares and artwork. With more time, I think that I would have found some great stuff.

All kinds of clothing and accessories to choose from...
We all love to show off our city pride, and there were plenty of vendors that were selling some great Cleveland gear and artwork. I had my eye on a piece for our new kitchen, but didn't take the plunge to purchase it. How fabulous are these CLE glasses?
There were a couple of vendors on site that were selling food and other treats, but you also had two lunch/snack options from local food trucks.
Sadly, almost everyone was out of food by the time that we had arrived.

It was a fun, and free, excursion for the afternoon. It is also family and pet-friendly. Check out their Holiday Show on November 23rd and 24th. Follow them on Twitter, or "like" their page on Facebook to stay updated.

I love this new addition to our community!

Looks like fun! We were going to go but ended up apple picking instead. One of these months I will make it there!

Love the flea! It does pay to go early, though, especially if you want larger items like vintage chairs or stools, or you just want a good selection of food!
