Our Story

At a time when shopping has become a click and daily cardboard box delivery, Artists & Fleas is a conductor of human-to-human transaction—where stories are as plentiful as products.

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.

“Artists & Fleas [is] an IRL and Instagram destination for those who love to discover what’s next in indie design.” — New York Post

“The experience is reimagined, enriched for discovery and swathed around a broader audience today.” — WWD

Artists & Fleas is a marketplace of makers — tastemakers, experience creators, designers, collectors and curators. Together, this creative community of shoppers & sellers come to discover and be discovered.
