Luckily, you don’t need to look as far as Goa anymore, as Mumbai will host its own flea market called The Lil Flea on 5th & 6th April, 2014 at Reclamation ground, 10am to 10pm in Bandra.
In a bid to quench the summer shopping needs of the city’s fashionistas and connoisseurs, The Lil Flea will be a one-stop destination for the choicest products from some of the most coveted brands spanning across fashion, jewellery, home dÃ©cor and lifestyle whilst keeping up with latest trends. The Lil Flea market is definitely not one of the clichÃ©’ exhibitions with only merchandise on offer, The Lil Flea will also have a curated & vibrant pop-up cafe with dozens of booths offering experimental & street cuisine and culinary workshops. Two music zones will showcase lively entertainment by some of Mumbai’s coolest up and coming singers and song writers through the day. When the music takes a break, you can chill in the lounge area in the cafe and enjoy some globally acclaimed and OSCAR winning short films or participate in a smattering of cool and fun workshops and quirky games.
Colourful tents with fun drapes all over the area will be showcasing more than 100 pop-up shops showcasing a variety of items such as clothes, footwear, bags, accessories, furniture, handicraft, artefacts, arts & craft, antiques, pottery, home dÃ©cor and old books along with street & experimental food zones.
The intent of The Lil Flea team behind doing the event is to also give back to the society in a sweet way by using this platform to support a few social causes, with initiatives like garage sale for charity and an art auction for Dignity Foundation.
