Like the idea of hunting for unique bits and bobs at flea markets but find you never get round to actually doing it? Well, from this weekend you'll be able to get your flea market fix in BT2 on Grafton Street, where The Dublin Flea Market will be running a weekly pop-up shop from 10am - 6pm on Saturdays.
There'll be no clothes, sadly, but I'm promised that there'll be vintage books, vinyl, retro interior accessories and collectable bric-a-brac to pick through.
It might seem a bit of a strange juxtaposition, a posh shop hosting second-hand pop-up stalls, but I guess it just proves that thrift shopping is, like Hansel in Zoolander, *so* hot right now...
A P.S. for Zoolander fanz: there's a sequel in the offing! Ben Stiller confirmed in an MTV News interview earlier this year that they're working on the script.
A P.P.S. for fact fanz: did you know that Zoolander's agent in the fillum, the guy who also plays Arthur in King of Queens, is Ben Stiller's da?!
