Pretty Dandy Flea
The Pretty Dandy Flea is a fabulous fun vintage, art and craft market which pops up in unexpected locations 3 or 4 times a year.

*** The event below has been cancelled due to one of the venues no longer being available. We will announce a new date soon. ***


We are delighted to announce the date for our next event, and the details of a new event partner we are really excited to be working with!

The Pretty Dandy Flea is joining forces with Sunshine Vintage Bazaar to create a craft & vintage behemoth. The two events are combining to create an even bigger and better craft and vintage flea market, launching on 4th July in Nottingham.

Sunshine Vintage Bazaar will bring the best vintage and retro goodies and Pretty Dandy Flea will curate the craft and art stalls. There will also be a fun ‘Fresh Meat’ area with the best and brightest new art and design graduates selling their wares.

Alongside the market there will be DJs providing a vintage soundtrack, homemade cakes and treats from Good Mood Food. Expect the very best vintage clothing and accessories, craft and handmade homewares and eclectic art stalls, with a fun fresh feel and great atmosphere.

VENUE: The Bodgea & Cobden Chambers - Pelham Street, Nottingham
DATE: 4th July 2015
TIME: 11am - 5pm
COST: FREE!


Info for stallholders:

We are now taking applications for a stall at the event on 4th July 2015. We are looking for collectors, crafters, artists & designers. It is a competitive process to ensure we have a vibrant mix of high quality stalls.

Testimonials
Pretty Dandy Flea                  
I attended the first and second Pretty Dandy Flea and both events exceeded all my expectations of what I was hoping for as a stall holder. Becky and Anders were very helpful and friendly all day. Unlike previous craft and market events that I had been to, this one was exceptionally well organised, well marketed and I was overwhelmed with the number of people that came through the doors! It was a real boost to my business and I had my most successful fair ever. There was a buzz of excitement and interest that managed to keep going all day, it was a fab mix of quality stalls and enthusiastic artist/makers/collectors. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the event both to future stallholders and members of the public alike.
                                                                 
Claire, The Curious Pancake

A beautifully curated mix of vintage and design based gifts and home wares provide a perfect blend of products for customers to browse.  The relaxed atmosphere with creative overtones and some delicious refreshments on offer encourages plenty of visitors to come along and spend time at the event.  After attending the very first Pretty Dandy Flea as a customer I knew it would be a great fit for The Forgotten Library.

Charlotte, The Forgotten Library

I’ve been lucky enough to be part of 2 Pretty Dandy Flea’s and both have been an absolute joy! Aside from the excellent sales I received from lovely customers I also had a brilliant time. There’s a really good mix of different stalls ensuring that both customers and sellers get the best out of the day. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting; most visitors stay for quite a while and enjoy the DJ’s and incredible food from the Pop Up Kitchen (try the pastrami sandwiches or the sausage rolls). I’d recommend the Flea as both a seller and a customer, such a great way to send a Saturday; buying wonderful home wares, listening to vinyl and eating great food.
