Remember that one time Porter Flea was at Marathon Music Works and the line down the street was so long — like, longer than the one at Antique Archeology — that you turned your car around and drove away?
Fear not! Our friends at fabled artisan market Porter Flea have moved the event out to Cornelia Fort Airpark, where they will host more than 80 vendors in their popular semi-annual event. Fittingly, they've adopted the moniker "AirCraft," and will once again offer a plethora of handmade and vintage goodies from your favorite area designers. If you're into things like modern handmade apparel and accessories, homegoods, furniture, jewelry, prints and paper goods, you're pretty much going to be in heaven. You don't have to worry about shopping 'til you drop, because food trucks will be on hand. And when else can you go shopping in an airplane hangar?
Admission is free, and the event takes place tomorrow, June 1, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The website advises coming later in the afternoon if you like a more relaxed shopping experience. Because, as anyone who has perused a flea market or a yard sale in the morning knows, that's when the crazies come out to shop.
If you think I'm exaggerating the veritable stampede of people, take a look at a few of the vendors for tomorrow's event: Jamie and the Jones, Tuft, Honeybean Boutique, Isle of Printing, Acorn & Archer, Holler Design, Freshie and Zero, Southern Lights Electric Co., Blooming Leopold, Black Mamba Vintage, DCXV and The Trunk.
