“This weekend flea market is off the hook. You’ll see a lot of Brooklyn-made items and rare 12-inch records. Its winter location is the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank, with chandeliers, marble floors, and high ceilings that remind me of a ’40s-style railroad terminal.” Saturdays (warm weather): 176 Lafayette Ave., between Clermont & Vanderbilt Aves., brooklynflea.com.
About to celebrate its 5th Anniversary, Brooklyn Flea has enriched the city landscape with a contemporary spin to the traditional concept of a flea market. I like to find beauty in unexpected places and am never disappointed at the Flea. With a range of vendors of antiques and vintage clothing, a selection of jewelry, art and crafts by local artisans, as well as food, there’s something for everyone. It is open to the public outdoors from April through November, on Saturdays in Fort Greene and on Sundays in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and indoors from Thanksgiving to March.
