The Brooklyn Flea Market is an outdoor favorite for New Yorkers in the summer. But in the winter? Fuhgetaboutit.
Lucky for you shivering deal-seekers out there, the Brooklyn Flea is moving indoors.
The Dumbo Winter Pop-Up market opens this Saturday. You can expect crowds of people looking for vintage and antique items. The list of 25 vendors will rotate each week (see the full list here), but you can expect items like antique doorknobs and mirrors from Olde Good Things, funky dresses from Jellyroll Vintage, and precious jewelry from Blue Canary Vintage.
Dumbo (or "down under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass") is a former industrial area and port town that's now a hip hotspot (think condos and cute restaurants). The Pop-Up market's storefront space is close to a gorgeous park under the Brooklyn Bridge.
The area's Saturday forecast? Rain/snow showers and 37 degrees Fahrenheit. But it'll be dry and toasty indoors.
Free (unless, of course, you buy something). 76 Front St., Brooklyn. Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., through Mar. 29.
