Every 4th Saturday of the month until November the peaceful square of Namesti Miru plays host to an original flea market. The flea market is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the offerings are varied and fun. Anyone is free to take part in the flea market; you pay 150kc for a small space where you can sell antiques, knick-knacks, old books, handmade jewelry, clothes, etc. You are not allowed to sell food items or animals. This is the first of its kind in the Czech capital; a trend that many hope will grow into something bigger. It is quite frankly, the start of something big! The new Czech market or square sales, one could call them as oppose to garage sales-where one mans garbage is another mans treasure! There are six stalls reserved for people selling homemade and handmade products such as jewelry or knitted goods at each flea market. There is also a special rate of 50 Kc per 1 m2 available for children, the elderly and the disabled (holders of the ZTP card) who want to sell something at the flea market. If you would like to share your feelings about the flea market or leave a comment, visit the website which you can find under the map or fill in a special form which you can get at the flea market. Happy hunting!
