GoNOLA Find: Little Flea NOLA

What tiny treasures will you find at Little Flea NOLA? Learn more about this monthly market full of vintage wares.

New Orleans may not have a Fifth Avenue or Magnificent Mile, but we do have a plethora of great shops and markets filled to the brim with rare art, old Mardi Gras costumes, and handmade goods. One such market making is Little Flea NOLA, a pop-up vintage flea market featuring some of New Orleans’ best clothing, furniture, jewelry and antique vendors.

Founders Tippi Clark and Hayley Gaberlavage are no strangers to selling goods in New Orleans. Clark is the founder of denim brand Holt McCall with previous experience design and development for major brands like Coach, Banana Republic, and Rebecca Minkoff. A visual artist, Gaberlavage and her husband, Ben, are co-founders of HAYLEY & BEN, a shop selling handmade goods and objects as well as collecting vintage designer furniture. Realizing that the city lacked a flea market dedicated to vintage finds, Clark and Gaberlavage collaborated to bring their vision to life.

Little Flea typically holds monthly markets on Saturdays, where visitors will find an array of vintage finds in excellent condition. Clothes, art, jewelry, antiques, and mid-century furniture from a variety of local vendors are all part of the mix; the market also usually includes a snack-as-you-shop component like food trucks or specialty cocktails. Locations for the market vary, but the Lower Garden District is often a favorite spot (1173 Magazine St. and Sophie B. Wright Park at the intersection of Sophie Wright Place and Magazine Street are two recent locales).
