We enjoyed last month’s Family Flea Market at Garden Books on Changle Lu so much that we booked a table for this month’s incarnation of the mostly-outdoor event, which takes place tomorrow (Saturday) from 2-5 pm outside in the bookstore’s — you guessed it — garden. There’s a section that is kind of indoors, as well. Look for the table with the Shanghaiist banner and perhaps a really cute dog. We’ll be selling our custom-made Shanghaiist T-shirts for the dirt-cheap price of 50 kuai (that’s 10 kuai off the already-low suggested retail price of 60). Shanghaiist contributor and photographer Peijin Chen will also be at our table selling some of his excellent photographs. There may be some other surprises, as well — and we hope to also have a cooler full of beer.
The Family Flea Market is held the last Saturday of each month at Garden Books, 325 Changle Lu, near Shaanxi Lu. There’s always a great selection of art, crafts, jewelry, clothing and various other knick-knacks. Last month there were even puppies you could take home. It’s a great community event — the kind of thing this city needs more of. Check out photos from last month’s flea market here.
Come on down to the flea market tomorrow afternoon. If you do, be sure to say hi.
