Del Ray residents and businesswomen, Lauren Fisher, PsyD and Amy Eggers, inaugurate a monthly community event: The Del Ray Vintage and Flea Market. The market is held on the second Saturday of each month from 9am to 1pm in the parking lot of 1900 Mt. Vernon Ave. in the Del Ray section of Alexandria. The goal of the market is to give community members a chance to participate in a grass-roots event, either as shoppers or vendors, with vintage/antique/flea market items they are hoping to sell or acquire.
Since its inception in June, items for sale have ranged from vintage and like-new clothing to housewares, sports memorabilia, child and baby items, artwork and more. Fisher and Eggers are encouraging all vendors to bring items for sale that could otherwise be bought in vintage/retro stores, flea markets or thrift stores. A wide variety of prices and items are represented.
