The Southeast Punk Flea Market (SEPFM) comes to Savannah for the first time March 13-12 at The Stables. SEPFM is free to the public and focuses on showcasing underground art while providing an outlet for alternative culture to commune, thrive, and showcase its creations and other oddities.
SEPFM vendors sell an assortment of trinkets and trinkets ranging from vintage records, comics and jewelry to taxidermy animals.
Chris Hall, one of the owners and organizers of the flea market, said the event in Savannah will be unique in many ways.
“Usually we’re indoors, but this one is going to be all outdoors. We have around 40 vendor locations, but we’ve decided to offer one-day spaces. So every day is going to be pretty much a whole new set of vendors,” Hall said.
The idea behind MPESP came from Hall noticing a lack of alternative markets in his home in Greenville, South Carolina. Hall, who has been touring with punk bands for 20 years, saw similar markets in big cities and decided he wanted to bring one to where he lives. He also noticed that people he knew had all kinds of cool and weird things they wanted to show off or sell.
In 2010, the first SEPFM made its debut and has been criss-crossing cities in the Southeast.
“I just kind of set it up for my friends and 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 we live in.
