This Sunday was the opening weekend for the Junction Flea in the Brick Works. The Junction Flea operates at two different locations, which is new this year (I appreciate the sass they deliver when addressing whether they will change their name or not). I broke the first rule of flea markets; don’t go expecting to find specific items. We had a list (small, but it was still a list) of things we were looking for to add to the ongoing nursery decorating, so when I didn’t find anything, I was a disappointed. Not in the Flea itself, which was really fun and had some interesting vendors; a great mix of antiques, vintage clothes, arts & crafts vendors and food (Augie’s Ice Pops is all I need to label an event a success). I also was in fits over the adorable Detour Coffee RV.
The best thing about the new Brick Works location is everything else available once you’ve finished at the Flea; we had a delicious brunch at Cafe Belong (we might have mentioned once or twice how much we love it there), and then wandered through the shop indoors.
We ended up driving out to Innisfil to the Roadshow Antiques Mall out there and finding all the things on our nursery list, so all round a very successful day! We’re looking forward to checking out the Junction Flea in the Stirling Road location sometime during the summer.
