The Bookworm + THRIFT Presents: The Beijing Flea Market

Beijing Flea Market 1

The Beijing Flea Market is BACK, and this time with new vendors and even more variety! For one day (this Saturday, September 19, noon – 7 pm), The Bookworm rooftop will be the place to find more than 25 vendors with a huge selection of secondhand clothes, shoes, jewelry, bags, and accessories, plus vintage, handmade items by local designers, artisan eats and delicious drink deals!

Just like last time, many of the items for sale are 100 RMB and under, so you can support local designers and leave with secondhand treasures guilt-free!


***Living Project x Nepal, an organization that hosts frequent cultural events around Beijing to raise money for the relief efforts in Nepal, is back with new tote bags designed with the help of local artists, Nepalese jewelry, a mehndi station, and more.

***NEEMIC Co-Founder and Eco-Chic Design Award Adviser Hans Martin Galliker will be giving pop-up presentations on sustainable fashion throughout the afternoon.

***You won’t go hungry at this flea market. We’re proud to be hosting some of Beijing’s tastiest bites, including Rager Pies, Big Bear Baked Goods, Reshma Khan’s Indian Culinary Classics, Smash a Cup Tea, Miss Muesli, and more!!

Here is a sampling of some of the other vendors:

Mountains of Imagination, Vixen, Q Apartment, Liuba Draws, The Cleaver Quarterly, ULee, Teibido Studio, Flora and Fauna

And so many more!


THRIFT is a project founded by fashion writer and former editor Jessica Rapp, who decided she could no longer handle living in a city without much of a system for thrifting, so she set out to create one. She collects used garments from people in the community, handpicks the most stylish items, and hosts pop-up shops around Beijing, reminding people that secondhand is both eco-friendly and fashionable. A huge portion of the donations are sent to charities helping people around China in need.

About The Bookworm:
