Brooklyn Flea Frenzy

Vintage furniture can be great statement pieces

This way to the Brooklyn Flea

Local artists use the BK Flea at The Piazza to display their masterpieces

Clothes, jewelry, food, furniture, you can find it all here

It's a picture perfect fall day; the birds are chirping, the trees are swaying, the leaves beneath your feet begin to crunch and there's not a single cloud in the sky. Please don't tell me you're planning on spending this beautiful day indoors. Looking for something to do? Do yourself a favor by visiting the Brooklyn Flea, now located at The Piazza in Northern Liberties (a 3 minute walk from our boutique!) 

What is the Brooklyn Flea you ask? In short it is Brooklyn's biggest and most popular vintage clothing & furniture market. It recently launched its first bazaar outside of New York City in the wonderful city of Brotherly Love which we call home. Local artists use the weekly marketplace to display and sell their work. Every Sunday, 12pm to 5pm (rain or shine) The Piazza is overflowing with delighted children, excited dogs, and a plethora of hipsters looking for the next statement piece of vintage for their city apartments. Do you feel as though you are none of the above? Fear not, there are all types of people ranging from families to vintage collectors strolling about the various vendors in search for shoes to armchairs and everything in between.

If vintage isn't much of your thing, it's still not a valid excuse to miss out on such a great opportunity. The Piazza is encompassed by local (and quite delicious) restaurants offering sushi, burgers, pizza, french toast, or just a cold beer to perfect the already radiant atmosphere. So slather on some sunscreen, grab a hat and Fido's leash, bring some cash and empty some room in your car for all the treasures you will undoubtedly find at the Brooklyn Flea, now located in Philly.
