From Clover Market to Franklin Flea, it’s no secret we love a good vendor market—and why wouldn’t we? It’s a chance to score some amazing home goods and one-of-a-kind presents, not to mention the glorious onsite food trucks ready to refuel you for more shopping. In short, basically any flea market is cool with us. But the Punk Rock Flea Market, a hipster’s haven hosted twice a year, just set itself apart as the must-see market of the year.

Why, you ask? Get this: The 500 vendor tables for the Punk Rock Flea Market, which went on sale today at noon, sold out in one minute according to a Facebook post by hopeful vendor Robert Dicks. (Market coordinator Sean Agnew also confirmed.) Robert has been selling at the Punk Rock Flea Market for almost seven years, but even his longstanding vendor status couldn’t secure him a spot. He explained that this market is pretty much a free-for-all, unlike shows like Art Star, where vendors need to be approved. (Don’t worry, you can still buy his cool and quirky prints here.)

But stay tuned, wannabe vendors and shoppers! An inside source at R5 Productions tells us they are currently considering adding an additional day to the flea market lineup. We’ll keep you posted with any updates.

For now, the Punk Rock Flea Market takes place Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15, featuring over 250 vendors each day. The best part? Vendors are only allowed to book tables for one day, so you can shop a completely different flea market on Sunday. Plus, given that every spot was booked within one minute of going live, you know the shopping prospects are going to be seriously good. Expect to walk into a warehouse full of personalized jewelry, graphic prints, cases of vinyl, and vintage home goods.

The Details: Saturday, May 14 to Sunday, May 15, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. 461 North 9th Street, Spring Garden. Admission is $3 at the door.
