Thieves Market is a bit of an anomaly in the world of open markets. It is closed for Spring and Summer, and open for one weekend each month from October until April. The organizers of Thieves Market make sure all the antique-hunting needs of the general public are catered for when some markets are shut for the season, so throughout the year there is always somewhere to go to offload some hard earned cash!
Everyone is welcomed at Thieves Market. There are just a few rules to sell your wares here: goods must be from the 80s or older, hand made crafty items, art work or exotic imports. If goods fit this bill, they can be put up for sale. It makes for an eclectic mix of both people and items for sale, and a really enjoyable market to walk around as a casual ‘window shopper’. There are conversations to be had at every stand, and many of the items for sale have quite the story behind them. Thieves Market is a perfect market for those seeking anything unique, quaint and a little bit kitsch to liven up their household.
At Thieves Market there is all kinds of weird and wonderful artwork, vintage furniture, antiques and collectables of all shapes and sizes, clothing, jewelery and a little bit of everything that could possibly be used to decorate a home. There is a small entry fee to come into the market – Dealer Admission costs $6 and grants entry to the premises from 8am , while General Admission costs $3 and grants entry to the premises from 9am – but it is more than worth it.
If looking for refreshments, Thieves Market has all needs covered, and gives shoppers a reason to keep coming back month after month. There are food stalls on site, fresh coffee and other delectable treats that differ each time the flea market sets up, which is a great excuse to become a regular visitor to this flea.
