The Portland Flea has been steadily expanding in frequency and profile level over the past year, but with yesterday's debut of the Sunday Emporium—in collaboration with Rejuvenation—there was the feeling that the Flea has taken root in the city at a new level; the buzz reached a new pitch. Vendors are a fascinating mix of locally made ceramics and apothecary, small home goods and vintage and antique dealers, plus up and coming names from the food scene and salvaged curios, and the design community's Instagram accounts lit up in enthusiastic response. MOD writer Katie Guinn was there to document the scene, an account of which you can read here in advance of the next edition, scheduled for Sunday, July 27.
