The stalls at the Kreisflohmi flea market are all set up on people’s private properties – in homes, courtyards, gardens and garages. Why is this?
We wanted to organise a flea market that spans the entire district. And one that was held by individuals, for individuals. The idea is to encourage dialogue in the local area and to build new friendships. People often don’t even know the other people who live in the same building as them! Kreisflohmi also provides an opportunity to explore new areas. It will give people a new perspective on the neighbourhood.
The stalls at Kreisflohmi are spread out across the whole district. How does this work?
We mark all the stands on a map beforehand that can be accessed via our website. We also send the stall holders eye-catching flyers to stick in their windows or to hang from fences. This way you will also stumble across stands as you are strolling around the district.
Do landlords not have issues with people setting up flea market stalls inside their homes?
If you are a tenant, you need to get permission from the property owner. When you register for Kreisflohmi, you have to confirm that you have their consent. Other than this, it’s really easy to participate in the flea market – there’s no stall fee and you don’t have to haul your stuff to another site.
