There have been quite a few thrift stores on Staten Island throughout the years. But it’s a real treat when you get to actually experience an old fashioned outdoor thrift like the Yankee Peddler Day event at Historic Richmond Town, taking place on May 6th from 10am to 5pm.
According to Historic Richmond Town:
Sell your wares or simply browse the chachkies. Bring the whole family! For the American picker in all of us, visit one of New York City’s best day markets with a wide range of vendors. Whether you are a serious collector, or are completely new to the thrifting experience – this is the event for you. Who knows, you may just find that hidden piece of Americana that your family will cherish for generations to come!
Some of you may be familiar with the famous Englishtown Flea Market right across the bridge in New Jersey and how much of a thrill it can be to just walk the open aisles and take in the sheer variety of thrift goods on offer. Well this is your chance to get in on the action without having to pay the toll and with the added charm of Historic Richmond Town on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
Historic Richmond Town is located at 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, New York 10306
Admission: $3, Kids get in free
