The Cleveland Flea

Readers' Choice

So it's not a store in the proper sense, but Cleveland voted in droves to recognize the Cleveland Flea, which has become a must-do event attracting thousands in just a few short years. Stephanie Sheldon's built a nexus for Cleveland sellers and makers, and a one-stop outlet for shoppers looking for anything from antiques to jeans to locally made sauerkraut. It's gotten so big, the main event has moved from the Sterle's parking lot to Tyler Village, and the Flea also runs a variety of bazaars and pop-up shops in the offseason. We celebrate our local makers here in this fine city, and the Cleveland Flea's success and popularity are Exhibit A.
