Hello, Celadon Flea-esta. Celadon Home’s outdoor market series has all of this, so we jumped at the chance to attend the first flea market earlier this month. Here’s what we experienced and how you can #TryThis.

What we tried (with pricing): 

We attended the kickoff event, but the Flea-esta is happening all year long — each last Sunday of the month, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., through December 2021. The free, open-to-the-public market takes place on the outside grounds + inside Celadon’s giant, open-air warehouse (2221 Noisette Blvd., North Charleston), and features 50+ local and regional artisan makers (jewelry, ceramics, home decor, clothing, gifts + more), plus local food trucks, drinks for grabs (they had free beer, seltzer + coozies during the first market), seating with tables, activities for the kids, and even live music. 🙌

What not to miss:

The deals on furniture in Celadon’s warehouse. On Flea-esta days, shoppers can snag an extra 20% off on the already super-discounted rugs, couches, tables, dressers + other home goods featured in the warehouse. Bonus: Surprise sales at Celadon’s warehouse and outlet during every market.

Also: Don’t miss listening to the live music with an iced latte or a taco in hand — the bands differ each month. See a lil’ preview on our Instagram story. 

What we’re still talking about: 

The many vendors that we saw and loved — we were happily surprised to find something we wanted at nearly every booth.

Plus, many of the brands grow into being featured in Celadon’s Mount Pleasant store, so the market is a fun preview of high quality artisans.
