The former Unique Thrift building (3333 Lorain Ave.) is home of the Cleveland Flea during our holiday season. Located in the Ohio City neighborhood, it's located 33 blocks due west of downtown... it's easy to find, no matter how you roll. There are over 1,000 parking spots, both free and paid, within 10 blocks of the event space. We still recommend that you take public transportation if you can (support the RTA!), or share an Über or Lyft with a friend!
ADA parking spots are available in the lot adjacent to the building, which can be accessed via Lorain Ave.
Check out Ohio City's Parking Map! Just for reference, we're Number 90 on the map (Unique Thrift Store)

1. WHAT IS THE CLEVELAND FLEA?
The Cleveland Flea is a monthly urban treasure hunt that pulls in thousands of Northeast Ohioans to lesser-known neighborhoods in the city. It’s curated vintage meets culinary adventures on the road to the most talented artists and makers in the region. But it’s always been more than just a market. Founded in 2013 by Stephanie Sheldon (Indie Foundry), the Flea started as a way to support the makers, dreamers and creative small businesses that call Cleveland home, while giving shoppers an experience they couldn’t get anyplace else.
The Flea welcomes 140+ vendors and 20,000-30,000 shoppers each month to our Tyler Village home. We consider ourselves matchmakers, connecting Cleveland shoppers with the businesses they love, all in a dreamy and fun way.
2. WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO SHOP THE FLEA?
Totally depends on what kind of shopper you are! Stay tuned to our blog, Facebook page, @ClevelandFlea on Instagram and Twitter for vendor highlights, shopper guides and other resources for making the most of your trip the Flea! Have questions? Tweet @ClevelandFlea or email email@example.com.
3. WHO RUNS THE CLEVELAND FLEA?
Founded in 2013 by Stephanie Sheldon of Indie Foundry, the Cleveland Flea is run by a small (but so mighty) team of full-time awesome peeps who live, breathe and dream Flea. Laura Drapac is our excellent Event Coordinator and vendor liaison. Elizabeth Flanagan is our Logistics Coordinator, and Heidi Rolf is the photographer for of all of our beautiful photoshoots. Of course, Stephanie is at the helm, steering the ship toward brilliant tomorrows!
Team Flea organizes the event, vets vendors, recruits shoppers, procures permits and licenses, hires security, removes trash, rents furniture, builds stuff, plays the music, listens to your feedback, markets the market, encourages partnerships and aims to pair shoppers with their new favorite businesses in a fun and dreamy way. Have questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Flea Booth at the next event.
4. WHERE DO I PARK?
Stop. Put yourself in reverse. And back up to the Directions + Parking section above. You flew right past it!
5. WHAT IF I CAN'T FIND A SPOT TO PARK?
Best advice: don't freak out, go home and look wistfully at other people's Instagrams. Take a deep breath and turn onto Superior Avenue toward downtown Cleveland. There's street parking for most of the 33 blocks between the event space and Public Square. Will you have to park 33 blocks away? No. Will you have to parallel park? Probably. We can't guarantee anything, but we're willing to bet you'll nab a spot within 5-7 blocks. Stink at parallel parking? Bike, bus, carpool or start practicing now!
6. DO VENDORS ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?
Many Cleveland Flea vendors do accept credit cards, but not all do. Need an ATM? Here's a map of all area ATMs (or check with your specific bank).
7. HOW CAN I BECOME A VENDOR AT THE FLEA?
Direct your attention to our Vendor Application and Process. Applications are now closed, but they reopen for the 2018 season on January 1. We look forward to learning more about you and your business!
8. MAY I BRING MY DOG TO THE FLEA?
At our outdoor events: yes! At our indoor, holiday events: service dogs only, please!
