In case you didn’t catch R5 Production’s Punk Rock Flea Market the first time it was around this year, don’t miss it the second time around on July 11-12. After much debate about whether it should be held inside or outside, R5 will have the second PRFM of the year at The Starlight Ballroom. There have been a few minor changes this time around in order to help the event run smoothly.
While there are going to be 40 less tables than usual, the event is being held over a two day period to make up for those ‘lost’ tables. As of now, those planning to sign up for a table can only sign up for one day to allow for a bigger variety of tables each day. There has also been a change in pricing level for those that wish to have a table – regular people selling their old junk and “businesses.” The general $3 admission price will get you in for both days, and those that are 21 and older are permitted to drink.
The PRFM is R5 Productions’ biggest fundraiser, held to continue bringing all-ages shows to the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia. With over 100 tables of records, clothes, jewelry, books, vintage items, toys, bike parts, stereos, and tons of handcrafted items, this event should not be missed!
As if anyone needed anymore convincing, did I mention that the event is going to be air- conditioned?
Saturday July 11th (9am to 4pm) and Sunday July 12th (10am to 5pm)
