Guest Blog: Brooklyn Flea Market
Nestled under the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn bridge is one of the coolest flea markets I've ever been to. The Brooklyn Flea Market features some great food vendors in addition to vintage clothes, shoes, jewelry, furniture, books, dishes, glassware, pictures--anything and everything you can imagine. There's a great view of the Manhattan Bridge and the market is adjacent to lovely Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, with outstanding views of lower Manhattan and a tiny speck of the Statue of Liberty visible in the distance.
While it's much smaller than Stoudt's Black Angus Antiques Mall, and also features NYC prices, the merchandise here is very focused and very high quality. Mom and Dad will be out for my cousin Joey's wedding in October--hopefully Mom and I can make time for an excursion to the flea market before they leave on Sunday!
Below, a few pictures from my day.
Above: a few of the jewelry stands I saw today! Some specialize only in jewelry, while others have a range of different vintage pieces--a few were both clothes and accessories. Below: my beautiful view of the Financial District in Manhattan!
Mom gets back tonight... so excited to see her blogs from her trip to NC! It sounds like a great time. Thanks for reading my guest blogs while she was away! Have a great rest of your weekend.
