Sure, you’ve seen our galleries of Elfreth’s Alley homes that are on the market. This Saturday, though, you can get an up close and personal look thanks to Deck the Alley, an event which lets visitors go inside the historic homes while enjoying refreshments, caroling, storytelling and the pleasant company of Ben Franklin (yes, Ben Franklin.)

Now, if browsing antiques in a long-shuttered building sounds like more your scene, we’ve got you covered there too. The Franklin Flea will also be this Saturday at the old Strawbridge & Clothing building on 8th and Market. It will, per Uwishunu, have everything from “fine antiques and vintage clothing to handmade decorative arts and gourmet street food” on sale.
