Here is a flavorful invite:
"Get your stocking stuffed at the Punk Rock Flea Market! The often imitated but never duplicated Punk Rock Flea Market returns to the Underground Events Center just before the holidays to sell you all the whatnots you can shake a jingle bell at. On December 8th, from noon to 8pm, the Punk Rock Flea Market appears as if by magic at the Underground Events Center in Belltown.
For seven straight years the Punk Rock Flea Market has been proud to be Seattle's least predictable and best-loved flea market. More than 50 peddlers, canvassers, cheapjacks, and solicitors pile into the dark corridors of the Underground Events Center to sell an enormous variety of arts, crafts, comic books, belt buckles, bike parts, jewelry, vintage clothing, fine furniture, stereo equipment, jams and jellies, bras and panties, cakes and cookies, tools, magazines, records, musical instruments, zippo lighters, walking shoes, smoking accessories, and untold riches of punk rock paraphernalia. As if Andy Warhol held a combination police auction and neighborhood swap meet.
While shopping you will be offered scrumptious mostly-healthy handmade food and will be surrounded by live and bottled music from all cultures known to humankind.
The market opens to the public at noon and goes until well pasty sundown. The PRFM is an ALL AGES event. Bring the kids, bring your Mom, bring the whole damn crew. And did we mention that it’s still just ONE DOLLAR to get in? What have you got to lose?!?
As always, the Low Income Housing Institute, aka LIHI, has generously loaned the Underground Events Center to the PRFM for the day. LIHI is a non-profit organization that builds homes for homeless and low-income people all around the Puget Sound. Once expenses are covered, all additional proceeds go to LIHI. More info about them at www.lihi.org.Try your luck, take a chance, spend a buck, buy some pants. Nothing sold will come with a warranty, nor is there a return policy, but for those with a sense of adventure and tightly crossed fingers, there WILL be bargains."
