Encinitas Flea Market at Pacific View (608 Third Street. Encinitas. CA 92024)  was the site of an Art, Vintage and Treasures event on Saturday, July 29, 2017 sponsored by Encinitas Friends of the Arts (EFA with Encinitas Arts Culture and Ecology Alliance (EACEA). This was a community event to support the restoration of Pacific View School into a community supported arts, culture and ecology hub. It raised about $4000 in booth fees and donations after the expenses of putting on this ambitious event and nearly 1000 showed up during the 5 hour event.  Naimeh Tahna who is the president of the EFA and did all the  organization  spoke highly of all the volunteer effort without which this huge effort would not be possible. Booth owners were pleased and a lively crowd attended this first ever flea market at the former school,  which concentrated on goodies from artists' homes and unusual crafts like the large crystal dreamcatchers made of lace, selections of vintage clothing and accessories, lovely jewelry, glass wall plaques, artist decorated sugar cookies and Starbucks coffee, a toco and a soft serve ice cream truck plus some live music. 

SDVAN  donated three boxes of goodies and all funds raised from the sales of these specific items will go to a public art project. All other donation and fees will help EFA and EACEA.

Perfect setting

Bargains galore
