The City Flea has really become a part of the fabric of the city – the in crowd: the city-loving millenials – are always to be found wandering the many delights to be found on those aisles. Which are only in place for 6 hours on the third Saturday of the month.
In addition to a terrific and fun day doing readings – I bought 2 big packages of Whirly Bird Granola (Vanilla and Chocolate) (which was right next to me), a very cute dress for granddaughter Bryce, which a touch of green on it (a balloon), a light weight silk tee, so that I didn’t melt during the middle of the day, 2 Turophilia quesadillas (my favorite food truck), a large soy chai from Coffee Emporium, and numerous glasses of various iced teas, to get me through the day.
I wanted to go look at the shoe booth, but never found it again after seeing it during set-up. Everything is at The Flea – including several items you will never have seen before, and others that are new incarnations of old ideas.
It just feels good – fun, upbeat, collaboration not competition, happy people who feel good about themselves, and want to learn from each other. The real heart of what Cincinnati really is – no downers, no negative complainers – love and fun are to be found in that 6 hour village each month.
