CWE Flea debuts Saturday, September 7

Nicki's Central West End Guide Events, Sightings Food and Drink For Children Handmade  Maggie Pearson CWE Flea
One of the items on that proverbial wish list for the neighborhood will get checked off next Saturday, September 7, with the launch of the CWE Flea—a fun outdoor marketplace on the parking lot at 449 N. Euclid (at Washington). Amy Howell and I have been mulling this over for a while and working hard at putting it together for the last month and 1/2, which is really pushing it. But we have the location, the vendors and excitement from those that have heard about it…so there's no turning back!

Don't think for a minute this is your ordinary garage sale—we have fabulous vendors with really interesting stuff. Spread the word and plan to stop by the first & third Saturdays in September & October to see what's happening at the CWE Flea. If we can make the outdoor marketplace a success this fall, we'll start up again next spring.

A special thanks to CWEnder Maggie Pearson for the fabulous logo and flyer design you see above. A  banner goes up on the CWE Flea site this weekend, so look for that too.

See you September 7th and 21st, and again October 5th and 19th!
