A Day at the Brooklyn Fleacomments (0) June 28th, 2008
It's a typical day at the Brooklyn Flea: hip ladies are decked out in their best retro sundresses, urban thrifters are looking for steals on vintage furniture and the line for the pupusas is impossibly long.
My last trip to the Brooklyn Flea as a seller was pure business but today I am here to have fun, eat some delicious food and window shop.
A few of my favorites from the day:
Kimberly Hamlin from Keep it Moving Design has, in my opinion, one of the prettiest booths there with tablecloths and banners made of flour sacks, pretty trims and vintage fabrics. I love her pretty memento-style jewelry and her knit trees are just amazing!
Rue St. Denis carries vintage clothing for men, women and children. I fell in love with the rack of pretty but graphic girl's jumpers.
I had heard great things about Kumquat Cupcakery but nothing prepared me for how good they taste! These two bit mini-cupcakes come in flavors like Banana Creme, Black and White and Coconut Mango and the assortment changes each week.
The Etsy New New team booth is at the Flea every weekend with a rotating group of sellers and you can always be sure to find some cool handmade treasure there. (Full disclosure: When I sell at the Flea, this is where you will find me!) This weekend, I was really taken by these pretty ceramic and mixed media necklaces by Presence of Color.
This is just a tiny sampling of the things you can find at the Flea. If you are visiting New York, be sure to check it out! The selection of goods changes each week so be sure to keep up with the newest sellers at the Brooklyn Flea blog.
