Although most of the shop lots aren’t filled up yet, it’s safe to say there are over 39 active sellers. Best place to get hipster / relics / creative / weird stuffs.

If you like, vintage, costume, clothes, jewellery, art, eccentric, weird and wonderful things - or even if you don't - just go and take a walk around it will be worth it.
