Ditch the big box stores and opt for something more unique this holiday season. December 3-6, the Denver Flea is holding its holiday edition showcasing 150 Colorado-centric vendors who cultivate the Colorado lifestyle with wares ranging from handmade jewelry, leather goods and artisan food products to local beauty lines, art and illustrations.
The four-day Holiday Flea extravaganza takes place in an 80,0000-square-foot warehouse at 4400 Fox St. that formerly housed the Denver Post’s newspaper production facility. Dormant for the last decade, the Holiday Flea will enliven the space for one of the biggest parties of the holiday season. It’s the perfect time stock up on one-of-a-kind gifts for the holidays!
The Holiday Flea is not your grandma’s yard sale. A variety of experiences are offered during the four day run. Here’s the breakdown of events:
