In Photos: Tampa Indie Flea Showcases In Gainesville


The Tampa Indie Flea and vendors from across Florida came to the Old Gainesville Depot on Sunday to host a pop-up market from noon to 4 p.m.

About 40 booths filled the historic Florida railroad site with all things indie, antique, modern and trendy.

The hand-selected vendors showcased products including handmade jewelry, screen-printed and embroidered T-shirts, up-cycled antiques and homemade jams.

The event is intended to start a community of makers, said Seanissey Loughlin, curator for the Tampa Indie Flea. He said he was pleased with park space The Depot has to offer.

“I’d love to start a monthly flea here in Gainesville,” Loughlin said. “The city is on a cultural verge, and it is a great place with great minds that need a place like the one that I have dreamt of here.”

Loughlin and his partner, Rosey Williams, are approaching their one-year anniversary of the Tampa Indie Flea. Loughlin said he envisions attendees returning as vendors.

“I want my attendants to leave inspired to come back next month, only with their own work to display,” he said.
