Spring Flea 2017

 

This year, 48 vintage vendors filled the church and The Annex with wonder and magic and treasures galore at The Spring Flea at BAC.  Just about 900 folks came to play with us, there was shopping aplenty, Bloody Mary and mimosa specials, Wilmington’s fabulous food trucks, Redeye Bakery, and the weather held out because, well, because it was The Spring Flea at BAC.  Check out the pics.  We had a blast!
