Today, Flea Style (aka Dallas’s most sophisticated flea market) is kicking off a weekend-long celebration for its one-year anniversary. Brittany Cobb’s market-turned-boutique-turned-full-on lifestyle brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings in South Side on Lamar, offering a showcase for countless vendors, workshops, and creative minds.
And in just one year, the 5,000-square-foot building in Deep Ellum has become a staple for our local artisan communities (and is even making its way to Frisco, and into the culinary scene, this summer). But just in case you needed a little convincing, here are a few solid reasons to celebrate Flea Style this weekend.
1. More Than 75 Local Makers and Collectors
Flea Style features vendors specializing in clothing, jewelry, art, home décor, culinary goods, and children’s items, all of which will be 25 percent off this weekend. All pieces are organically styled throughout the store, and booths change hands every three months, meaning there’s never a dull moment shopping flea style (see what we did there?).
2. A Colorful New Addition
Cobb and her team are constantly working to transform the space. Last week, the team completed a 16-foot rainbow mural, offering a perfect new backdrop for summer selfies, located just a short drive from Dallas Pride‘s new location in Fair Park.

Meet our latest mural, y’all! 🌈 We’re pumped to create a happy corner for y’all to enjoy in the heart of Deep Ellum. We officially unveil this giant masterpiece by our @gracedille3 of @maddonandco next week. But now that the secret is out, come see this magic! We’re open 10-6 mañana! #fleastyle #shopfleastyle #rainbow
3. Get Your Hands Dirty
This weekend, Flea Style is debuting a new plant (and succulent, and cactus) bar. Located on the back patio, the 900-square-foot setup will be a DIY station for shoppers to find their next plant project, and perfectly pot it in one of the boutique’s vintage vessel.
4. Workshop ‘Til You Drop
Flea Style hosts a variety of creative and educational courses to fuel inventive minds. From watercolor classes to mentor sessions from Cobb herself, the boutique and headquarters continues to serve as a space for free thinking and community building.
5. Forget Hiring a Babysitter
Starting in June, kids ages 4 to 12 are invited to Flea Style’s Kids Creative Camps. Hosted by K-12 certified art teacher Anne Robb, the workshops feature a variety of craft and art activities to keep little ones busy while parents shop worry-free.
