It’s become almost a tradition to write up 10 reasons why you should attend Punk Rock Flea Market Lorain!
So without further ado, here are your reasons to attend our 3rd Annual Spring Show – Lust For Life on Saturday, April 28!
1. Back in the center of Elyria!
We’ve moved our shows back to St. John Lutheran Church Gym at 1140 West River Road, conveniently located by IHOP, Home Depot, Target, and adjacent to the Midway Mall. Super easy to find with lots of parking! We had our first Halloween Extravaganza show here for those who remember.
2. Over 50 of the best vendors around gathered under one roof with awesome merchandise you won’t find in stores!
Most of the vendors at PRFM Lorain are independent artisans who handcraft original items like clothing, jewelry, bath and body products, decor, and much more. The rest of our vendors stock quality collectibles, toys, vintage items, comic books, action figures, and other items you won’t find readily available at big box stores!
3. NEO Comic Con
Come visit our Vendor Sponsors, NEO Comic Con at their tables and get info on how you can be a part of the coolest independent Comic-Con in Ohio that happens on Sunday, August 19 in North Olmsted! I’m sure they’ll have all kinds of awesomeness with them for you! Some of the vendors at our show, as well as some of our PRFM Lorain team, will be at this con! You don’t want to miss it!
4. Mother’s Day
Have a unique mom or grandma in your life? PRFM Lorain is the perfect place to buy her something wicked cool and unique! Everything from clothing to taxidermy and wet specimens and everything in between will be here!
5. Meet new and interesting people from all over the Northeast Ohio area
Feel the need to meet some different, interesting, and like-minded people? PRFM Lorain is the place to be! Perhaps your new best friend will be someone walking around or even one of the vendors at PRFM Lorain. It’s also a great place to finally meet up with Facebook friends you haven’t met in person yet! ?
6. #ShopLocal and support local artisans and indie businesses
Attending PRFM Lorain keeps your hard-earned money where it belongs – in the community, and away from corporate greed! You’ll be helping crafters, artisans, and indie businesses fuel their dreams and create more items for the public. Who wants cheap, plastic and mass-produced crap from China? Not us!
7. Eat some great food from our local Food Trucks!
Supporting small independent biz includes food, too! This time around, we have not just one but TWO food trucks for you to get your grub on. Come hungry or work up an appetite and get some delicious food from Flamingo Jacks with their eclectic comfort food, like their truffle fries and Taco Mike, with burritos as big as your head!
8. SWAG BAGS!
Those wonderful swag bags people line up for, the first 100 adults through the door get a FREE PRFM Lorain Swag Bag filled with coupons, buttons, stickers, goodies, and info from vendors and businesses around Northeast Ohio!
9. Door Prizes!
You responded well to our door prize giveaways at the Fall Show, that we’re making this part of our shows! Everyone who enters gets a free ticket. We’ll be drawing for door prizes a few times an hour! All door prizes are valued at a $5+ value!
We’re doing our raffles a little differently this time around to get the community involved. Lorain County Pit Crew will be on site again with their cute pups and information about how you can help by donating or getting involved! They’ll be raffling off a SUPER amazing gift basket from our beloved vendor, Sunny’s Tasty Treats, valued at over $100! You can get your tickets now through the day of the show from the Pit Crew.
We have one other raffle planned, which will benefit Lucy’s Light Foundation – the items will be announced as soon as we get word from the sponsor! Believe me, you’re going to want to buy tickets for this one!
Mark your calendars, RSVP to the event on Facebook to get reminders and be sure to make it out on Saturday, April 28 from noon till 6 pm to get your punk rock shopping experience on!
Just $2 admission at the door gets you in to shop til you drop!
There’s something for EVERYONE at Punk Rock Flea Market Lorain! Always a Family-Friendly Event!
