Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to find. So when I can’t find something, I create it. Insert The Youngstown Flea. I founded The Youngstown Flea to host a “Market For Makers” once per month right in the heart of the Downtown Youngstown area. The market is dedicated to local/regional vendors of hand-made, antique and repurposed wood/metal/furniture, vintage clothing, and collectibles. We hand select the best picks in town who have a true passion for creating. Only in #SeasonFour of it’s existence it has drawn 100K shoppers and generated over $1M in gross sales for the city of Youngstown.
