Designers & Fleas handpicks emerging artists, indie designers and vintage vendors and mixes them up beautifully under one glorious roof in Ultimo, a district that sits at the cusp of Sydney’s brightest creative precincts.

The vibe is an eclectic hybrid of avant-garde jostled up against up-cycled and vintage with music, food and a genuine community fair feel. It is a distinctly urban market and the perfect way to spend an early December Sydney Sunday afternoon browsing for unique pieces to go into Christmas stockings. Hands down, Designers & Fleas is the best place in the CBD to score super-fresh creations from Sydney-based artists and designers, for just one day only.

This pioneering event was conceived to be a physical hands-on platform with real customers to give aspiring creative entrepreneurs invaluable on-the-spot feedback and experience selling and showcasing their work side-by-side local designers and makers.” said Designers & Fleas curator, Carolina Totterman.

This weekends event is the second edition of Designers & Fleas, which debuted on an empty lot on Harris Street in August, with plans to feature a rotating selection of around 50 vendors comprised of local makers, designers and artists, four times a year, so they can sell and showcase their respective crafts including recent graduates and current UTS students.
