Hoboken Gets a Pop-Up Vintage Market Called ‘Hoboken Flea’

COVID has canceled major art events like the annual Arts & Music Festival that take place on Washington Street where locals could browse and shop everything from clothing to art to food, and more. So vintage clothing and art lovers, this one is for you. Two locals have come up with an innovative way to bring creatives together for people to enjoy: a new Instagram account popped up on September 15th under the name @theHobokenFlea, and the first post announced the grand opening of a month-long pop-up flea market called The Hoboken Flea that will take place in an old dry cleaner store formerly known as “Lots of Clean Dry Cleaners” located on 564 1st Street in Hoboken.

The post stated, “Excited to announce The Hoboken Flea, a month-long pop-up market curated by @porchfinds & @grinovintage. 🦟 What looks like an old dry cleaner on 1st St. will soon be transformed into a funky curation of vintage and contemporary clothes, sunglasses, jewelry, plant life, candles, art, and more. Come stop by opening this weekend!”

Grino Vintage is a business that was built by a local for locals and prides itself on offering unique vintage, designer frames with an exclusive, customized experience. Owner Tom Pellegrino built his business from an idea that he had four years ago when he repurposed his grandfather’s vintage glasses and now he runs his business via Instagram, word-of-mouth, and his apartment in Hoboken.
