The Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, open every weekend in a parking lot just off Airport Way, delivers a weirdo Seattle experience that’s increasingly rare: unique art and wearables, both new and vintage, that you actually want to buy, from creators and collectors that don’t take themselves too seriously. It’s a beautiful, slightly dirty pillow on which to rest your Etsy-weary head. The drawback is that it’s just a handful of vendors, which decreases your chances of finding the exact right thing—but back in March, the Georgetown Flea Market started running a once-monthly market that extends into nearby venue The Stables, offering an expanded selection of offbeat goods.
Because it’s the gift-giving season, and local artisans are prepared to sell you so many things, December’s Georgetown Flea Market is an extra-special holiday spectacular. They’ll feature more than 70 vendors of handmade and vintage stuff and, according to organizers, some “fun collaborations.” Participants are on the market’s Instagram highlights, and include painters, clothing designers, dog accessory-makers, a vintage bookseller, illustrators, jewelers, ceramicists, candlemakers, and more. You’ll be able to check a few things off your list, even if the list is “things I would like to buy for myself, personally.”
