More good news on the New York City flea market scene: the Brooklyn Flea, which lives outdoors at the Bishop Loughlin school yard during the summer (read: windswept by freezing winds during the winter) is sheltering indoors for the next twelve weeks.
They're calling it the Winter Pop-Up Market for antiques in DUMBO. It's a bit smaller–25 vendors–and a bit closer to Manhattan (I can hear the accusations of Manhattan-centrity, but I really hate being shuttled all over Brooklyn when the subways go berserk on the weekends).
It features "25 top vintage/antique vendors of furniture, clothing, objects, jewelry, curiosities, accessories, art, lighting, and more. We're curating the Pop-Up very selectively to provide a mix that appeals to folks looking for quality, hard-to-find, and collectible items."
If the market doesn't attract enough traffic, it may not run the full twelve weeks, so check the Brooklyn Flea website for updates before you go. The outdoors market is back on April first.
Saturday and Sunday, 76 Front Street, corner of Washington in DUMBO.
