TREASURE HUNTING AT BROOKLYN FLEA

Header

When I was in NYC for Fashion Week, I was so happy to have found time to go beyond the borders of the Manhattan Island and explore Brooklyn. As a big fan of thrift shopping and the pursuit of vintage treasures, I was thrilled to finally have time to check out the Brooklyn Flea Market.

In the wintertime, the flea market is hosted indoors at the former Williamsburg Savings Bank, which makes for its stunning architecture with stained glass windows. There are over a hundred different vendors selling anything from handmade jewelry, new and vintage clothes, bags and furniture, to trinkets found in one’s parents home. It’s a fun activity to do on a cold winter afternoon where you can easily keep yourself entertained for a few hours. After scouring for good finds, make your way down to the lower level where you can find yourself in foodie heaven in its original bank vault.

    Thanks Jamie for reading!! It was such a delight. Have you been to the Junction Flea in Toronto? I’ve found that it’s a very similar vibe with deelish bites, vintage goodies and handmade artwork!

    This is not a traditional flea market where they sell vintage, old used items. And the few they do they sell it very expensive. If I want new or artsy fartsy stuff i’d go elsewhere. If i’m hungry i’d go eat elsewhere too!
