It’s just two weeks until Christmas and it can only mean one thing… ‘Tis the season for gingerbread cookies, eggnog, and holiday shopping! While some of us get in the holiday spirit as soon as Halloween is over, we bet a lot of you are still on the lookout for the ideal presents. If that is the case, fear not: R5 Productions is hosting the Punk Rock Flea Market Holiday Edition, and it is the perfect opportunity to find one-of-a-kind gifts for your friends and family, or to get something for yourself and show the world how punk rock you are.
The Punk Rock Flea Market comes back, starting Friday, for a whole weekend full of shopping. Not only will this edition be the largest of the year, it will also be the biggest event ever hosted by R5 Productions, with over 700 vendors. For just $3, you’ll have access to the Punk Rock Flea Market on both Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm. Don’t forget to join them on Friday for a free night market.
No matter what you’re looking for, there is no doubt you will find it somewhere, among the hundreds of vendors present this weekend. Vintage clothes, art, prints, cupcakes, books, DVDs, trinkets, memorabilia, posters, stereo equipment, instruments, skateboards, thingamabobs, and a lot of nonsense… Go Christmas-shopping crazy as you stroll through the Punk Rock Market. And to make it even more delightful, food trucks will be here for you to enjoy some snacks, coffee, and refreshments.
What about records, you might ask? What would be a Punk Rock Market without records? R5 Productions is hosting the Record Riot sale on Saturday and Sunday, as part of the Punk Rock Flea Market. Giant record fair, the Record Riot is welcoming more than 60 handpicked dealers, from all over the east coast.
And because Christmas is the season of giving, R5 Productions is giving away an awesome prize. Check out their Facebook status below:
“We are going to be giving away two LIFETIME PASSES this weekend as the prize to a ridiculous scavenger hunt. You and a friend will be able to attend EVERY show for THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.
