When I was younger, my dad used to take me to flea markets in the deep south. I would walk away with bandanas, peasant tops and other items we all thought were super cool back in the 90s.
So when I heard about the District Flea, I knew I had to see it for myself. And boy am I glad I did.
While we were highly unprepared for the greatness that ensued (only had $5 in cash), we perused original art, stopped to smell the daisies, and ate the BEST macaroons on the planet. I guess you could say the whole thing was a beautiful mess.
District Flea will be open every Saturday from now until November 30th, 10 AM to 5 PM at 945 Florida Avenue, NW. Word to the wise: Bring cash and arrive early to find the best deals.
