The Miami Flea- Reuniting a Community of Vendors
Posted on Thursday, August 25 2016 01:42:00 PM in Thrifter Lifestyle by Jasmine Negron
One of our favorite get together happens about once a month at the Miami Flea. From tasty eats to hanging out with our dear vendor friends, this ritual has brightened our days. This community-based event is free to the public and exposes you to some of the most unique products that locals are crafting. We have been lucky to even have some of our own friends feature their work, such as LiveAlke and Lifelinks. The folks here at Thrifter are all about getting to know our community and we met some of the most intriguing vendors this past weekend.
Florida Ocean Jewelry hand-makes necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, and more via freediving into the ocean. This collection is delicate, natural, and bright in all its ways. Our beach culture matches perfectly with the earthy tones of this lovely vendor’s creation.
See U Later Alligator is macramé heaven. This recent trend of textile-making has been a favorite at the Miami Flea. Using knotting rather than weaving or knitting, this work of art is a personal household favorite. Originally from Colombia, this collection is absolutely boho-chic and explodes with color.
Vintedgelife is the ultimate vendor that sells all things vintage. Racks on racks with some of the hippest thrifted items, this was an obvious pick. One lesson learned when shopping vintage is to not think twice when it catches your eye. A flowy, 70’s-inspired top was sold by this very vendor and there is no way to reclaim this one of a kind find. The struggle is real.
These special gems are the heart of our mission here at Thrifter. Bringing together local artisans and constantly seeking distinctive items all throughout the city!
