In addition to checking out the latest batch of furniture makers in the Furniture Fest tent, we're looking forward to spending some time with the what we see as the backbone of The Flea: The old-reliable vendors of furniture, household items and miscellaneous oddities who show up week in and week out. Vendors like Karen & Albert Antiques, Jaybird Antiques, Colonia and Red Barn Antiques. We'll also stop by to congratulate John Murphy on winning the Best Brooklyn Flea Vendor award from the Village Voice Best of NYC awards this week.
Please note: The Flea will not be held on Sunday, November 2 because of the New York City Marathon. Then we'll be back in action every Sunday through Christmas.
The Brooklyn Flea is held on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 176 Lafayette Avenue in Brooklyn; no bikes or dogs allowed in the market. Closest trains are the C and G to Washington/Clinton. You can also take any of the number of trains that go to Atlantic Station and walk up Lafayette Avenue from there. For more info, check out the Flea Blog.
