Valley Retro

As much as we love Cave Creek, the northeast Valley burg wouldn’t be the obvious first choice if we were in the market for, say, a mid-century-modern accent for the living room or an atomic-age dinette set for the kitchen.

Correction: It would be now, thanks to the town’s new Thieves Market, a monthly flea market-slash-street fair that debuted in May. More than 50 vendors will hawk singular indie, retro, vintage, Western, and antique wares in a lot located behind Big Earl’s Greasy Eats. Organizer Mickey Meulenbeek says the market “offers everything you want and nothing you need.”

Perfect! That’s just what we weren’t looking for.

First Saturday of every month, 6 a.m.-noon, 2009
