Over 10,000 people made it out to the opening day of the Brooklyn Flea on Saturday to shop, eat, socialize and people watch. A bunch of people have already uploaded photos to Flickr under the "brooklynflea" and "Brooklyn Flea" tags and Metromix has a great slideshow posted already. Twitter, hardly a household name when the Flea opened a year ago, was full of Flea-related tweets this weekend. Below are some excerpts. Thanks to everyone who came out and made it a great day.
