PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a lot happening in South Philadelphia on Saturday.

Renee Gilinger, executive director of the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, says they’ve partnered with Phila Flea Markets to add shopping options to the neighborhood.

“We have 75 vendors here,” Gilinger says, “all offering antiques, vintage, there’s kitchenware, there’s clothing, there’s jewelry, there’s glassware. It’s really fun treasure-hunting.”

“I always hear shoppers say ‘oh my God, I had that when I was a kid,’ says Flea market organizer, Tony Soprano, “or ‘my mother had these dishes when we were growing up!'”

And the flea markets all held all over the city.

“They have them on South Street, they have them in Fairmount, Northern Liberties,” Gilinger says. “Pretty much anywhere in Philadelphia you name it, they’re there — and they’re here on East Passyunk and we’ll have them again in September.”

Gilinger says they flea market event was setup specifically to coincide with the East Passyunk Second Saturday festivities.

“Every month is a little bit different, but we also try to have something for everybody,” she says. “We’ll have things during the daytime, shopping and at night we’ll have a lot more art openings.”
