The Bookworm + THRIFT Presents: The Beijing Flea Market

The Beijing Flea Market is BACK, and this time with new vendors and even more variety! For one day (this Saturday, September 19, noon - 7 pm), The Bookworm rooftop will be the place to find more than 25 vendors with a huge selection of secondhand clothes, shoes, jewelry, bags, and accessories, plus vintage, handmade items by local designers, artisan eats and delicious drink deals!

Just like last time many of the items for sale are 100 RMB and under, so you can support local designers and leave with secondhand treasures guilt-free!


Living Project x Nepal, an organization that hosts frequent cultural events around Beijing to raise money for the relief efforts in Nepal, is back with new tote bags designed with the help of local artists, Nepalese jewelry, a mendhi station, and more.

NEEMIC Co-Founder and Eco-Chic Design Award Adviser Hans Martin Galliker will be giving pop-up presentations on sustainable fashion throughout the afternoon.

THRIFT is a project founded by fashion writer and former editor Jessica Rapp, who decided she could no longer handle living in a city without much of a system for thrifting, so she set out to create one. She collects used garments from people in the community, handpicks the most stylish items, and hosts pop-up shops around Beijing, reminding people that secondhand is both eco-friendly and fashionable. A huge portion of the donations are sent to charities helping people around China in need.
