This April, Mumbai is all set to witness two vintage shopping experiences, reminiscent of Goa’s eclectic flea markets. Retailing unique wares, The Lil Flea and High Street Phoenix will be hosting their individual markets with a common objective – to fund various charities and support social causes.
The genesis of The Lil Flea lies in a desire of the founding team to build a thriving community of likeminded people in the city. Scheduled to be held on April 5 and 6 at Reclamation Ground, Bandra, Mumbai, The Lil Flea has expressed its support towards a few social causes, with initiatives like a garage sale for charity, an art auction for Dignity Foundation and an adoption drive for the The Welfare of Stray Dogs.
Elaborating on the thought behind it, co-founders Alankar Jain and Priyanka Punjabi, explained: “The Lil Flea is our attempt to pay respect to creativity and also a way to get together on one platform the best of Mumbai’s artists, mavericks, outliers, designers, chefs and start-ups to create a thriving community that can help make our great city’s art and creative scene that much more happening. It will also give an opportunity to the people of Mumbai to experience a weekend beyond the malls and discover cool finds, amazing food, great bargains, unique products and services.”
