Bling Platoon night flea market, non-hyun-dong seoul korea

This unique night flea market in Seoul, Korea takes place every 1st Saturday of the month. I unfortunately cannot make it to the next coming event since my flight back to the states is two days before the Saturday. This post is based on the last two times I was here. It takes place in a building that looks like a huge container box. You can tell they put a lot of thoughts and fun factors into this place.

This is how the flea market works:

Every vendor at the flea market is given a spot to sell once approved by the event coordinator. They pay a small fee for the spot and are allowed to sell the entire night until they sell out. Because sellers go through approval, you can expect unique, fun pieces at the flea market.

This place is full of young people who love music and fashion. They host some of the hottest DJs in Seoul so it’s like you’re at a club AND you can shop! They also have a fully stocked bar so you can grab some drink with a valid identification and mingle with the crowd.

This friendly young man from Jamaica goes by ‘Goldtea’. He was there both times I went to this flea market. He was happy to find someone who speaks English and we had a great conversation. He sells his high quality handmade bracelets and necklaces for very cheap ($5~10). They were all unique and wearable. I bought several bracelets as a gift for friends. He charged me so little that I told him to keep the change.

I would definitely check this place out again if I get the chance. This place is full of fun, good people, and positive vibe. They also sponsor and host charity events with the profit from the flea market.
