One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, and thanks to the folks behind Fleatroit Junkcity, Detroit’s got a trove of trash, treasure, and really cool stuff. (Not to mention the added perk of reusing, recycling, and not contributing to landfill fuckery. Hell yeah!)

For Fleatroit Junkcity’s summer edition, it has enlisted some of the city’s best collectors to haul their cool shit outdoors to the grounds of Scripps Park in Woodbridge. DJs Dave Ja Vu and Ho-Hanna will provide the tunes, gourmet hot dog pop-up Daddy Dog will be on site for fueling purposes, and for those in need of some spiritual guidance, the ladies of GeminEye Tarot will be conducting readings.

Fleatroit Junkcity's summer flea begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday, July 21, at Scripps Park; 3660 Trumbull St., Detroit; Event is free and open to the public.
