This weekend, local music venue The Space is hosting its annual "Flea Market," containing a massive variety of inexpensive rare second-hand goods in relatively great shape.

From the official event posting on their site:

Of interest at this event is the Grand Opening of the VitanthroMobile, CT's first mobile boutique.  Recently repaired by Ralph Ferrucci, a politician, former business owner, and auto mechanic.  When the owner of the van was having trouble with the vehicle after bringing it to Bob Thomas Ford, Ralph stepped in and brought it back to life so that you can shop for clothes in it.
