Annual Oxford Flea Set for Saturday, April 1
OXFORD, Miss. – The Annual Oxford Flea, organized by Oxford’s Liz and Benjy Foster, will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, at the Old Armory Pavilion at 1801 University Avenue at the corner of Bramlett Boulevard.

“We began Oxford Flea in 2015 with plans to host a monthly shopping event, but it soon became clear that an annual event in April was the way to go,” said Liz. “April is the start of festival season, the students are in town, and people are in the mood to be outside enjoying the weather.”
This year’s event will include vendors under the pavilion and on the lawn, offering items such as handmade furniture; vintage and children’s clothing; collectibles; toys; candles; wooden signs; houseware items; jewelry; repurposed furniture; outdoor yard art; antiques; and much more. Food vendors will offer barbecue plates; custom egg rolls; fried pies and sno cones.
Oxford Flea is a family-friendly event that has something for everyone, including balloon artist, Steve Thomas, who will be on site creating fun balloon art for kids young and old.
“One of our sponsors, local radio station Bullseye 95.5, will be broadcasting live from the Oxford Flea on Saturday morning, which is super fun,” said Liz. “We really appreciate their support as well as the support of HottyToddy.com and the Cotton Boll Antique Mall.”
The Pavilion spots are full, but interested vendors who would like to set up on the lawn can apply through www.oxfordflea.com.
