176 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY. (@ Vanderbilt Ave.)
A recent visit to the Fort Greene market turned up an amazing 90′s-era Gaultier tribal silver belt/neckpiece nestled among kitcshy Disneyana and old wristwatches. Like the Chelsea Antique Garage, some of two hundred-or-so vendors here work the East Coast antique fair circuit and price their goods well outside of bargain territory, but there’s still a tantalizing element of unpredictability here. Brooklyn Flea is open Saturdays in Fort Greene and Sundays at One Hanson from 10am to 5pm, rain or shine, through November. During the winter, the market moves indoors to a smaller location in DUMBO.
