Punk Rock Flea Market June 7th!


The summer edition of the Punk Rock Flea Market comes to LIHI's basement and parking lot on Saturday June 7th.  Located at 2407 First Ave. in Belltown, this is Seattle's ONLY Punk Rock Flea Market! Under ground, above board, and 100% unambiguous! The bargains, beats and booze flow freely ALL DAY. The PRFM is a full on flea market with everything from music and clothing, to furniture, computers, stereo equipment, handmade apparel, shoes, vegan treats, info from nonprofit groups, books, art, bikes, skateboards and whatever else we can fit into the space. Our "Punk Rock" name refers as much to the DIY spirit of the event as it does to any particular music or lifestyle. Still just $1 to get in, AND WORTH EVERY PENNY.  $1 entry fee supports LIHI housing and services.
