3 October 2014: Grand Airport Flea Market at the terminal (10:00 - 18:00)

Flughafen Dresden GmbH and Sächsische Zeitung have pleasure in inviting you to the first flea market in the terminal. This grand art, antique and flea market will take place in the western wing of this popular event venue. Among the items on offer will be books, antiques, glass, porcelain, second-hand household goods, records, small items of furniture, art, pictures, crafts and collectors' pieces such as historic picture postcards of the region. Experts will be on hand to value antiques, antiquarian books and, of course, aviation-related collectors' objects completely free of charge. The flea market area is on the ground floor and is therefore easily accessible for traders. Pitches can be set up between 06:30 and 08:30 and are open to all! To register for a pitch, phone +49 (0)351 4864 2443 or email troedelmarkt@sz-pinnwand.de. A 3 metre pitch costs just €20.
