Bash Out the Balloons, Beijing’s Beloved Flea Market Turns 1!
Celebrating their 1st birthday, The Beijing Flea Market is ballooning to double its size by spreading across two separate venues – The Bookworm (its home base) and now also Pop-Up Beijing just a few steps away in south Sanlitun.
This is the first time Beijing Flea Market has expanded and we’re all the more delighted to see this fun and crafty market continue to grow with more vendors selling unique craft goods, hand-drawn art, fashion pieces and accessories, gorgeous jewellery and tasty bites!
“Eat cake and drink champagne and spritzers with us as The Beijing Flea Market celebrates its 1st birthday on Saturday, July 16 from 11am to 5pm!! Aside from an indie makers sale on The Bookworm’s rooftop, we’ll be extending the market grounds to include an additional awesome venue in Sanlitun’s Courtyard 4 community: Pop-Up Beijing. Look out for even MORE vendors between the two spaces, new faces, and of course, locally made design, clothes, food, drink deals and more!” – Jessica Rapp, Founder of The Beijing Flea Market

Pop-Up Beijing’s Treasure Trove of Delights: When Hoarding Turns into Art
Stepping into Pop-Up Beijing, it can be overwhelming to the untrained eye with so many things everywhere. At first glance, the space is just overflowing with beautiful wood furniture, plush couches and striking cabinets. While the ceiling is covered with hanging chandeliers and antique lamps, the walls are lined with mirrors, paintings and tall shelves filled top to bottom with ceramics, pots, figurines and vases.
It may seem cluttered or haphazard at first, but there is a method to the madness. You just need to take a step back to focus your shopping eye before you can fully begin to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of each individual piece on display. In every corner, there are refined, quirky, stylish pieces, accented by vibrant fresh flowers alongside timeless antiques.
I commend what this reviewer wrote on CityWeekend – “From antique furniture and vintage fabrics to modern artwork and fanciful cushions, the collection here lets you break away from living in apartment that was once all-IKEA-all-the-time.” - Review by memworldwide
