The Brooklyn Flea Redux

Things are on the up and up at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene. I covered the debut of the flea way back in April when things were in their infancy. I am happy to report that many of my issues with the Brownstoner produced vintage fest have been corrected and the flea is nearly perfect at this point. I love to go to the Elephant’s Trunk flea in Milford, Connecticut, but getting up there with enough time to enjoy the market is nearly impossible due to the 5:45am start time. The Brooklyn Flea is much more accommodating with its 10am opening. That makes it easy to get a good brunch and hangover-helper under your belt before hand. Additionally, the food (if you skip brunch and head straight over) at the Brooklyn Flea is far superior to that of any flea I have ever been to. So you have no excuse not to head to Fort Greene next weekend.

Note that this stand is a “Mad Men” shop full of 60s vintage goods.

If you walk up Lafayette to the flea, make a detour to Stuart & Wright. The awesome men’s and women’s boutique sells all sorts of good brands and is worth checking out.

After the flea, stop at No. 7 or Weather Up (pictured below) for a drink.

    Damnit I used to live right next to that flea market before I moved to Miami. I wonder how long that booth has been up? I guess there’s no use crying over spilled milk.

    I hope you took that PAY ROLLS box home with you.

    Big ups to Stuart and Wright. Not enough love for this Brooklyn boutique with a well-edited, sharply-presented selection of Engineered Garments, Shipley Halmos, APC, Unis and Obedient Sons. And some of those killer Rogues Gallery deck boots and some Rachel Comey footwear. Friendly owners are the cherry on top.
