Dublin may be poorer in antiques and vintage fare than its European sisters, but you can stop daydreaming about Parisian flea markets right now. In our September/October issue just out, Hydrangea Girl’s Alex Carberry waxes lyrical about the thrills of thrifting.
With an established arts and antiques quarter on Francis Street and new fleamarkets and vintage fairs popping up every year, we have a lot going on, and it’s only getting better.
Read on for our list of fab flea markets in the capital…
Above: The Brocante Market
The Co-Op, 12 Newmarket, Dublin 8 is at the heart of all things retro in South Dublin City, with three events every month.
Ha’Penny Flea, every Saturday at The Grand Social on Lower Liffey Street, Dublin 1. A fun mish mash of clothes, accessories, grub and homewares.
Merchants Market, Merchants Yard, East Wall Road, Dublin 3, weekends and some weekdays. Arrive early on a Saturday morning for the real treasures, as they go fast. Great for vintage crockery and a proper car boot buzz. Look out for some finds from here in our current issue!
Blackrock Market, open every Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday Monday, Blackrock Village, Co. Dublin. Books, bric-a-brac, buns and the odd bit of furniture – we’re still raging we didn’t pick up these pretty cups.
