Our #BuildTheFlea Kickstarter is an opportunity to invest in something you love, believe in and can watch flourish. It's not just tables, benches and bars we're building. We're creating a greater experience for shoppers and vendors to make Cleveland's creative economy boom.
What better reason to make dreamy collaborations with our vendors come true? We've worked with Cleveland Flea artists, culinary pros and makers to craft perks for our Kickstarter backers you can't get anyplace else. Browse the guide to our top rewards (CAMPAIGN ENDS AT 11:59 P.M. on TUESDAY, MAY 12):
$5-$10: High-fives and buttons
Every penny counts. The Cleveland Flea needs and appreciates any amount you can give to our campaign. While we can't necessarily deliver tangible gifts for all levels, we're eager to show you lots of love, whatever your gift amount.
$15: Downloadable Prints + Wallpapers
Designer Heidi Rolf (Indie Foundry + Flea vendor Tangent Designs) created a collection of Rising Tide-inspired prints and desktop wallpapers that you can use to paint your life Flea. A mix of colorful, bright, sophisticated and bold, the prints will be delivered ASAP once our Kickstarter goal is met!
$25: T-shirt (MOST POPULAR!)
Our BE THE RISING TIDE T-shirts, also designed by Heidi Rolf, have been our most popular perks and giving level. What better way to join the Rising Tide of Cleveland and wear your Flea Fever on your sleeve?
$75: Flea Survival Kit
After last weekend, perhaps we'll throw in some water and sunblock too! Your survival kit to the Flea includes custom-designed tote bag, notebook, pencil and other swag created by Flea makers.
$100: Original, Illustrated Print by Chris Deighan
Cleveland artist Chris Deighan will capture the unique energy, style and essence of the Cleveland Flea, its vendors, neighborhood, shoppers, architecture and atmosphere with original, illustrated print, created just for Kickstarter backers. Always searching for that piece of art people will envy and ask where you got it? Here's your chance.
$175: NEW PERK! Name a bench
Finally! When someone says, "is your name on that seat?" You can say YES! We're building 80 benches for the Flea. Your name can be on one. We're giving two names per bench — pledge twice to claim the whole plank!
$250: One-of-a-kind Jewelry by On The Lookout
On the Lookout Jewelry creator Erica Frazier-Young used inspiration from Cleveland Flea founder Stephanie Sheldon's recent trip to the blue city of Chefchaouen, Morocco, to design an original collection of bracelets for #BuildTheFlea backers. Just be prepared to tell envious everyone you're wearing originals. And you get to pick two!
$500: The Flea Foodie Experience
It's either a great way to make friends or the perfect delight to keep at home for yourself. Foodies! You're up! We've brought together a collection of delectable bites, including sausage from Flea friends Saucisson, sweet treats by Philomena Bake Shop and some fine fromage by Yellow House Cheese. We'll deliver it on a keeper Hex Cutting Board by Three Hexagon Studios (perfect to refill your collection, we think). We can make wine recommendations to boot!
Want to give $750+?
Heck yeah, we welcome your gifts! Perks for $750+ include your own set of furniture ($750), a special cameo at a Flea photoshoot with Suzuran Photography ($1000) and your pick of the rewards outlined above. We do have a few spots for backers to be hailed as our heroes ($10,000) too! Thank you so much for your support!
