I love antiques. They’re a little piece of the past you get to hold on to; a way to preserve the essence of a simpler time.
If you’re like me, and hope to someday fill your house with Victorian vanity sets and Elizabethan easy chairs, save the date for Shed 5 Flea Antique and Vintage Market, located in historic Eastern Market.
Shed 5 will be featuring vintage home decor, furniture, garden art, apparel, specialty foods, unique shopkeepers and much more!
We have the inside scoop for the must see vendors and vintage décor steals and deals!
Shed 5 Flea is a three-day event hosted by Mercantile Events & Marketing, a company that specializes in event planning, management, branding, and marketing. The event will showcase Detroit design personalities, such as Krista and Tami from Cloth and Kind and the author of Detroit Hustle, Amy Haimerl.
Branded by Detroit
Be sure to check out one of my favorites, Branded by Detroit, a vendor that salvages wood and metals from lot clean ups and abandoned homes in Detroit and repurposes them into wooden art and home goods. I love their selection of exposed metal lamps and wood signs – a good way to add an industrial vibe to your home.
Supporting our Detroit businesses is a cause I hold dear to my heart. When we support our city’s entrepreneurs and artists, we add much more than revenue to our city: we put Detroit on the map as a city of industrialism and hard-working spirit. It’s no secret that “Detroit Hustles Harder!”
Shed 5 Flea offers three Sundays in the summer to attend this event: June 12, July 10, and August 14. Each event begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m.. It’s located at 2934 Russell Street in Eastern Market. Admission and parking is free.
