In the Books | Pop Up Flea IV

Dec 6th, 2011 | Categories: Pop Up Flea | by Michael Williams

Another Pop Up Flea in the books — a big thanks to all that participated, either as a vendor or those that just stopped by to check things out. The event has become much more than just a chance for folks to come and buy stuff, for that my cohort Randy Goldberg and I are truly proud. Speaking of Randy, much respect to him for all of his hard work and imaginative thinking. I would be hard pressed to name another project that I have as much fun producing — so cheers to you Mr. Goldberg. Pop Up Flea sort of came together at the last minute this year due to our struggles to find a suitable space. Eventually we found the venue (thanks to Whitney for that) and it was full speed ahead. I’m glad it all worked out. Randy and I are really proud of all that has come out of people attending the flea and the vendors putting in the effort to make it all happen. My thanks to all of them and to all that came by or supported other ways.

Below are some photos from the event. Some pictures are mine, some are via Travel Well and some are from Simple Threads.

Quality Goods With No Obsolescence | Pop Up Flea IV

Dec 1st, 2011 | Categories: Pop Up Flea | by Michael Williams

The time is upon us, the fourth ever Pop Up Flea is happening this weekend in New York City. We’ve got 30+ vendors participating (brand list below), all but ensuring that there’s something for everybody. To give you an idea of what to expect, we made a little video highlighting just a few of the folks you will see at the flea.

During the process of assembling the roster, my cohort Randy Goldberg and I were guided by the conviction of quality goods with no obsolescence. We think we’ve exceeded our original goal, but we’ll let you be the judge. We will be at 159 Bleecker Street Friday, Saturday and Sunday — hope to see you there.

The Pop Up Flea Rises

Nov 16th, 2011 | Categories: Housekeeping, Pop Up Flea | by Michael Williams

It’s that time of year again, Pop Up Flea time. Come December 2nd, 3rd and 4th we will be holding the fourth edition of our menswear market of desirable new and vintage goods — and all are welcome. We’re excited to release the brand line-up soon, but until them know that we are going to have a lot of the great folks from previous PUFs, and a bunch of great new labels. This could be dangerous — hide your kids, hide your wallet, hide your wife.

Just a quick note of thanks to everyone that came by the Pop Up Flea. It was a helluva good time for all involved. I want to also send a big thank you to Randy Goldberg, a truly great partner and a man among boys. The event would be nothing without Randy’s smarts, humor and good nature. Goldberg is everything I want to be when I grow up.

Before we get back to our regularly scheduled programming I wanted to post some photos from the weekend. I hope you enjoy.

Official Announcement: The Pop Up Flea

Nov 11th, 2010 | Categories: Official Announcements, Pop Up Flea | by Michael Williams

It’s that time of year again, time for the Pop Up Flea in New York. Let this be the official announcement of the line up, dates and other pertinent information. The third incarnation of the Pop Up Flea should prove to be the best one yet — a menswear  gathering with all sorts of good people involved. Our (Randy Goldberg and myself) goal was to make the best men’s shop in NYC for a weekend. The event is only part flea market (vendors take up booth space and manage their own shop) and is only part pop up shop. Most of the items sold are new, but we also have several vintage dealers with a variety of quality used stuff. Over the weekend long meeting-of-the-menswear-minds there will be a great selection from a lot of cool brands and a bunch of exclusive items. We will also have a group of our favorite designers on hand for everyone to meet. All in all it should be a lot of fun for everyone involved.
