Franklin Flea Finds Its Haven And Launches This Weekend

The Philadelphia-based bazaar known as the Brooklyn Flea Philly, a marketplace place containing dozens of vendors selling antique furniture, vintage clothing, and other collectibles, will get a fresh start after being snubbed out of at The Piazza in Northern Liberties, which launched in June of this year. The revitalized market will commence this weekend at its new home on a former 25,000-square-foot sales floor of Strawbridge at Eighth and Market Streets under a more fitting title of Franklin Flea. 

The reason of the aversion and failure of the former flea market is thought to be because of its derived name, which comes from its emulation of the original Brooklyn Flea in New York City. Franklin Flea organizer Mark Vevle, a Philadelphia resident, said the public has been more favorably receptive of the new name, which was changed after learning vendors were jeered by locals for its foreign handle. "The feedback they would get from some of their staunch, loyal people was, 'I won't set foot down there because it has Brooklyn in its name,'" said Vevle, despite most of its vendors hailing from the Philadelphia region. Vevle also hopes further acceptance and popularity of the Franklin Flea will come from placing the market closer to a more densely populated area, in a shopping complex with links to SEPTA trains, with consumers coming from local browsers, tourists and holiday shoppers.

Vevle's motivation occurred three months ago when he met with officials from the Center City District. With the continuance of the Brooklyn Flea looking grave, Vevle began brainstorming for a more interesting and historic setting for an indoor version of the market. The Strawbridge idea was developed at the end of a meeting in August by Michelle Shannon, one of Center City District's retail and marketing professionals and former marketing director at the Gallery, an urban mall in downtown Philadelphia which holds over 130 stores and a food court.

Though not a long-term element in the plans of the Philadelphia-based Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, Franklin Flea is thought to be a low-cost venture in helping to reinvent the mall. "We recognized that this concept was very creative," said Maureen Weir, the Gallery senior marketing director who worked on the temporary lease, which will extend through late December. Franklin Flea's vendors will sell items from $3 to $300 and higher, meaning they will likely draw a broad customer base not typically found at the Gallery.

Be sure to check out the newly reborn Franklin Flea which will take place Saturdays from November 16 through December 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and December 20 from noon to 7 p.m.
