This Sunday, September 21 from 10am-5pm The Leslieville Flea will be returning to beautiful Ashbridge Estate and bringing with it a great line up of vendors.
We’ve got lots of returning favourites and some really great new vendors too. Here’s just a small sampling of what you will find at the Flea this Sunday.
Bubby’s Tchotchkes was born out of the need to give some dignity to the heirloom collections of my late grandmother, a true bubby. China and crystal are interwoven with vintage practicals, old collections of memorabila, linens, hardware odds and ends and a whole lot more. Why wait for November to start your christmas shopping! Bubby’s Tchotchkes are ready and waiting to become that special gift for your special someone. Eve Weinberg, vendor behind Bubby’s Tchotchkes, is an avid vintage shopping supporter in her everyday interior design practice. Eve believes that a home feels more intimate when surrounded by an eclectic blend of aged objects that inspire and reflect the indiviualitiy of the owner whether they be sentimental or visually inspired.
VINTAGE DESIGN CLASSICS
Now that sweater weather is back again….it’s time to stock up on some great looks for fall.

You cannot beat that price and these gorgeous sweaters will keep you warm all season. Mens and Ladies both…in tons of great colours and patterns…you will not be able to just stop at one!
A bit about Hazel Black from founder Lisa Shaeffer:
“I grew up watching my mother make beautiful and unique handmade jewelry. I have always enjoyed making things by hand, but was in a very different line of work. The cork and leather bracelets that I made for my own enjoyment started getting a lot of attention from family and friends and even from strangers. I started getting requests to make bracelets for people. Things grew organically from there. I decided to name my business Hazel Black, which is my grandmother’s name. I wanted to do something to honour her.
Making things by hand is extremely important to me. My energy and creativity go in to every single piece I make. My bracelets are carefully crafted and made with love. On a personal level, I try to buy local and handmade as much as possible as I believe it’s a more conscious was to shop.”
There is definitely no fear of shopping on an empty stomach this Sunday. Whatever your preference, we’ve got you covered!
Founded as a family and friends run food vending pop up, ALK gained a steady following of vegetarians and their meat eating friends. From Fringe Festival to Farmers Markets they share their diverse, tasty, locally sourced menu and their mission.
At Animal Liberation Kitchen, their goal is not to pressure people into feeling guilty about eating meat. They simply intend to offer a healthy and tasty alternative and in doing so are trying to prove that meat is not necessary for a delicious and wholly nutritious meal.
Come try them for yourselves…they will be serving up Jackfruit Tacos (vegan and gluten free) and Vegetarian Bahn mi. Also, Raw Energy Balls: a healthy, no refined sugar, vegan, truffle like treat.
