The Southeast Punk Flea Market (SEPFM) is coming to Savannah for the first time on March 13-12 at The Stables. The SEPFM is free to the public, and focuses on highlighting underground art while providing an outlet for alternative culture to commune, thrive and showcase its creations and other oddities.
Vendors at the SEPFM sell an assortment of baubles and curios spanning from vintage records, comic books and jewelry to taxidermy animals.
Chris Hall, one of the owners and organizers of the flea market said that the event in Savannah is going to be unique in many ways.
“Usually we’re indoors, but this one is going to be all outdoors. We have roughly 40 vendor spots, but we decided to offer single day spaces. So each day is going to be pretty much a new set of vendors,” said Hall.
The idea behind the SEPFM came from Hall noticing a lack of alternative markets in his home of Greenville, South Caroline. Hall, who has been touring with punk bands for the last 20 years, saw similar markets in bigger cities and decided that he wanted to bring one to the place he lives. He also noticed that people he knew had all sorts of cool and odd things that they wanted to show off or sell.
In 2010 the first SEPFM made its debut, and has been traveling to cities in the Southeast ever since.
“I just kind of put it together for my friends and some other people to get together and hang out. I thought it would be something really fun to do, and something unique to bring to the area that we live in.
