Our marketplace is a community that champions self-expression for both buyers and sellers. We foster the relationships between our artist/curators and our customers: nurturing independent makers into full-fledged businesses by empowering patrons to shop locally.
It’s a place for makers and vintage curators to find homes for the objects that they put so much of themselves into and a place for seekers to find themselves in the objects that they take home. Artists & Fleas is more than shopping. It’s the thrill of discovering, and being discovered.
The parent company of Artists & Fleas, Shop Extraordinary Enterprises was established to create retail experiences that bolster the courage of entrepreneurs, the spirit of creativity and the power of human connection. The company’s current portfolio of brands also includes Regeneration, a shopping destination for the next generation vintage shopper, and the Manhattan Vintage Show, the iconic vintage showcase that takes place in NYC three times a year.
