Sellers braved the harsh outdoors for the November Flea Market in Newmarket square last Sunday.
Despite the weather, those attending were in the high spirits that have come to be expected at the flea market events. The organisers thanked everyone who braved the stormy weather to make it out to sell, buy and to hang out.
“Such a pity about the high winds restricting the gazebos outside but fair play to some of our brave traders who went for it anyway,” organisers of the market said in a statement.
The Dublin Flea Market offers an alternative to busy shop streets and pricey brands that seem to get the better of us at times of weakness.
Newmarket Food Co-op which hosted the market, was full of stalls selling old clothes, original art works, bric a brac and novelty items.
Last Sunday marked the last Flea in the Co-op of 2015 and the seventh birthday of the market. December’s not for profit Christmas Flea Market was set to take place in a disused John Player cigarette factory, on the South Circular Road. The building, used previously in filming TV3’s Red Rock, has never previously been open to the public.
The move to this venue, is a result of less space in the previous venue of Block T in Smithfield. A new business, which had just opened in the complex, meant there was less space in the building.
However, in an unexpected turn of events, the permission to use The John Player factory has been withdrawn. The Flea Market managed to pull of something of a Christmas miracle and will now take place in the Point Village for three days, kicking off tomorrow.
Here are some photos of last Sunday.
