Podcast #5: Great Lake Outfitters and the Silver Screen

Sometimes the stories behind how items get to the flea are as fascinating as where they end up. Cleveland Flea vintage vendor Kelly Pierce of Great Lake Outfitters tells us how a handful of her finds ended up on the new ABC series, The Astronaut Wives Club.

We also learn how Kelly grew her business from Halloween costume-shopping to full-time job, why the vintage market is strong in the Great Lakes region and which of her dresses ended up on Mad Men.

Small Batch Dispatch is a podcast for makers and entrepreneurs who know it's not all Pinterest and cupcakes when you run a small, creative business. A co-production of Indie Foundry and the Cleveland Flea, the series features stories about the people behind the products and the life behind the business.
