Last weekend we jumped in a cab and sped over the Williamsburg bridge to get our vintage hunt on at the Brooklyn Flea‘s Sunday market held in the warmer months at the East River Waterfront.
We’re big vintage fans and the Brooklyn Flea always delivers some of the most original pieces you won’t find in a shop or thrift store because the vendors are always changing introducing new pieces either from their personal collection or a stylish friend. On the other end, there are amazing artisans with beautifully made collections you can often only find in the flea.
We found these amazing hand made leather and felt satchels at one stall that fit onto the cross bar of a bike, as well as a few pairs of collaborative Osborn Shoes he had designed with the brand. Another stall we loved was Dolls & Robots who had an amazingly curated vintage clothes and bags (we even had to fight off a young hipster for a Halston skirt!), as well as her own line of patterned cropped tops, shorts, and other made to order chunky knit sweaters. We also found handmade leather clogs, tons of vintage sunglasses, jewellery, furniture, art, vinyl records,and adorable vintage glassware and pottery.
You really never know what you’ll find at the flea, and it’s a must visit for us every time we’re in New York. We also never forget to make a stop at the super rad shop What Goes Around Comes Around, which is a couple of blocks away.
Take a look at some of our photos from the flea below.
