Visiting the Brooklyn Flea

Life here in Brooklyn the past week has been full of food and fun!  I had a great Friendsgiving with some New York friends and a friend who is in town visiting for a few days.  Since she’s here, we’ve been out and about doing some very New York things that she loves to do whenever she visits.  One of them is going to the Brooklyn Flea.

The Brooklyn Flea just moved indoors for the season since the weather has turned chilly and this year it’s in a new location, so we had to check it out.  On Saturday we headed over to Williamsburg to see the new location that now combines the Flea and the Smorgasburg.  That means vintage wares + crafts + yummy food!  It did not disappoint.

One of the first vendors we came upon was this person selling calendars that look a bit quilt inspired, if you ask me!


My friend and I also loved these screen printed designs.  They were available printed on wood planks, which were very cool, or as prints you could buy and frame.  A few of these came home with my friend.


I’m trying to think of a use for these giant metal letters.  How fun are they?


If you need to boost your energy while shopping there are lots of food options available.  There was a huge line for the Ramen Burger, and the Mac & Cheese Bar looked good to me.  Or if sweets are your thing, the Brooklyn Flea has you covered.  There are lots of sweet treats, like that pink Hibiscus-flavored donut on the end.


As we were about to leave, we found one last vendor that we remembered from last year and love.  I am obsessed with these mirrors.  They are made from old pressed tin ceilings and are so gorgeous.  I wish I had a big enough apartment to get one of the really big floor mirrors, but the smaller ones are equally as cool.  They also offer wall hangings that don’t have a mirror that I really like, too.



We had so much fun checking out the vendors selling such unique and crafty items, and if there’s anyone that can appreciate a fellow crafty person it’s this gal!  For more information about the Brooklyn Flea, visit
