The Khyber bares its Seoul

Great minds think alike to organize Halifax's first Night Flea Market.

When Natalie Slater and Chloe Anderson met, it was a match made in Korea. Slater had been drooling over Seoul's night markets via the blog world, Anderson had just returned from a year of teaching there and they were both dreaming up Halifax's first Night Flea Market. So, the two partnered to plan an evening of treasure hunting. "You know when you travel and see things and it's like, 'I wish we had this at home'? If we work harder and bring those things here, we don't have to complain about what we don't have," says Slater. Twenty-four vendors offering junk, handmade crafts, baked goods, art, music and vintage clothing will cozy up for what will hopefully become a bi-monthly series of markets.

Saturday Nov 27, Khyber ICA, 1588 Barrington Street 8pm-11pm, $2
