Pop Up Flea Tokyo 2014_27

If you were following along on Instagram, you would have known that this past weekend we took Pop Up Flea to Tokyo for the first time. We set up shop with a good mix of American and Japanese brands, plus pour-over coffee, custom indigo dying and lots of exclusive items. As one PUF visitor described on Instagram, it was a real deal “American Culture Festival.”  Being the first time we have taken Pop Up Flea so far from home, we were curious to see how the concept would resonate in a place as culturally different as Japan. With a core group of long-supporting brands and an outstanding crew to help us, we succeeded in making the first ever Pop Up Flea Tokyo a huge success.

A very special thanks to Tanner Goods, Tellason, Rancourt & Co., The Hill-Side / Hickoree’s, Filson, Red Wing Heritage, General Knot, The Good Flock, Billykirk, Field Notes, Freemans Sporting Club and Topo Designs for continuing to travel near and far in the name of Pop Up Flea.

The Pop Up Flea Takes Tokyo

Oct 21st, 2014 | Categories: Pop Up Flea | by Jake Gallagher


Next week we’re packing up and shipping out as the Pop Up Flea rises in the Land of the Rising Sun. That’s right, we’re taking PUF halfway around the world to bring all of that Americana goodness to Tokyo for the first time ever. We might be strangers in a strange land, but we’re bringing along some familiar faces including the largest and most complete offering from Filson ever to hit Japan. Adding to our recognizable roster of American brands are some of Japan’s finest including Brown’s Beach Cloth, Button Works, and a custom indigo dying booth. The address, info and brand list is below.

In the Books | Pop Up Flea New York City 2013

Dec 10th, 2013 | Categories: New York City, Pop Up Flea | by Michael Williams

This past weekend in SoHo marked the 7th ever installment of the Pop Up Flea, an event that has grown from a small space and 10 of our designer friends to a massive loft with over sixty different brands. While the scale of PUF has grown, the spirit of the event remains the same.

The idea that Randy Goldberg and I came up with back in 2009 remains very much intact: to get a bunch of good people and well-made things all together in one room. Could the 14,000 people who came to Pop Up Flea be wrong? Many thanks to all of the vendors who make Pop Up Flea possible with their hard work and creativity. This has been a big year for us after successfully taking PUF to London and holding our 6th New York City event. Next year is going to be even bigger with more events here as well as internationally. Stay posted for more on that.

The Pop Up Flea Returns to NYC This Weekend.

Dec 5th, 2013 | Categories: Pop Up Flea | by Michael Williams

The weekend of Pop Up Flea is upon us. Sixty top brands have amassed at 82 Mercer Street for what should prove to be the most concentrated collection of menswear goods on the planet. If you like well-made things and good people, this is the place to be this weekend. Everything is ready to go, the brands are geared-up and Nick Wooster is jumping on a plane back from Miami to be back in time. It’s a great time to be a man (or someone who needs to buy a gift for a man) in New York City.

The final vendor list is below. This is the largest group for a Pop Up Flea yet and can’t wait for all of this to be together in one room. See you tomorrow at 3pm sharp — make sure to say hello if you catch me.
