Shed 5 Flea Antique & Vintage Market to Appear Once a Month This Summer

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 Showcases

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!”

The Deets

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.

Check out the Shed 5 Flea website for updates on the event or follow them on Facebook to see sneak previews of the vintage vendors and their picturesque products.

      1. Hi Allison,

        Just checking in to see if you were able to make it out to the August Flea? We are already planning for 2017 and may possibly add a September date next year since the response has been so overwhelmingly positive. Eastern Market Corp. and president Dan Carmody are thrilled with Shed 5 Flea’s success. The Detroit News did a great article on it as well: The economic impact of Shed 5 Flea is estimated at around 400k and the August Flea drew approximately 8-9k people. We are thrilled and appreciate your coverage. Onto the next event!
