Flea The Scene

It's official. Phoenix has fleas.

That's thanks to vintage shopping enthusiast Ashlee Molina, who's organized the inaugural Phoenix Flea, which takes place Friday and Saturday, November 29 and 30. Molina had been itching to start up a recurring flea market-style event in town since returning about a year ago. She'd traveled, moved, and shopped around, all the while taking mental notes on what makes for a fun flea. She'll bring that know-how to the outdoor marketplace, which will feature all-local vendors, including Xappaland Jewelry, MAME Soy Candles, and Against the Grain. Shoppers can also expect fine artwork, vintage clothing, collectables, and furniture among the finds at Historic Heritage Square, 115 North Sixth Street. Live music and food vendors will be in the mix, too.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Tickets are $5 and available via Proceeds benefit the 100 Club of Arizona. The second and third editions of the event are slated for January and March 2014. For more info, visit

Fri., Nov. 29, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 30, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2013
