The Flea is on the Move

Organizers of the popular Brooklyn Flea — the Sunday outdoor arts, crafts, antiques and vintage market in a Fort Greene high school backyard — will unveil a scaled down, up-market indoor version this Saturday in DUMBO. “It’s for Brooklyn Flea vendors who never wanted to bring their best stuff to an outdoor flea market,” said organizer Eric Demby. “There will be some overlap, but because it’s DUMBO, it’s less of a flea market and more of an antique and vintage clothing shop. “It’ll be more like a store and less like a ‘happening,’” added Demby.

On weekends through March, the DUMBO version will set up shop in vacant space at the corner of Washington and Front streets owned by neighborhood real-estate titan David Walentas.
