Itinerary for the Leisurely Stroller (Who Makes Thoughtful Deliveries On Her Way Home)


Alicia Hansen (@aliciamhansen) is a Cleveland mama, event professional, yoga teacher and dog lover.

Alicia shares how she and her daughter make the most of their time on Flea days.

Quick tip for first-timers: Make getting in easy-breezy — bring singles to the entry gate! It’s $4 for single day, $6 for the whole weekend.

Alicia’s Five Must-Dos at Spring Flea:


STOP 1: Lunch

First stop is always the food trucks. We arrive right before the lunch rush and usually end up at a Flea mainstay, like Cleveland Field Kitchen. I split a tasty sandwich, made with the freshest ingredients, with my mini-me.


STOP 2: Leisurely Stroll Around Favorites

We take a leisurely walk through the market — always making sure to stop and see what new items Hand Lettered Old Shit, Océanne Jewelry and Wandering Wardrobe have to offer. Each has their own style and brings something different to the market (and my home).


STOP 3: Keep It Colorful

Then to the Flea Color Wall to snap a few shots for Instagram. (My toddler daughter is a little ham — just like her mother!)


STOP 4: Delivery Duty

One more lap back around to grab an order of Donut Lab donuts — to-go to drop off at my bro’s on the ride home. Take care of the ones you love.


STOP 5: Stick Around

Give yourself enough time to check out as many vendors as possible. It’s a seasonal event. Take advantage of it while it’s here! No need to flee the Flea — there’s plenty to do, see and enjoy all day long (or both days)!
