Following a successful opening month of its Antiques Market in Dumbo, Brooklyn Flea (www.brooklynflea.com) is expanding its Winter Pop-Up to a second empty storefront directly across the street, at 81 Front St. The details are the same as the antiques market: Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., through March 29.
The 6,100-square-foot loft-like space will feature 35 mostly non-vintage vendors of clothes, jewelry, art, handmade/crafts, and best of all, food. Jan. 31-Feb. 1 saw a soft launch for the new space, with the full grand opening Feb. 7-8.
Winter Pop-Up will feature the debut of the “Curated Corner,” where the Flea will partner with guest curators to bring in their favorite designer/shop/artist/dealer to hold a one-time-only show/sample sale/trunk show. Curators include: Daily Candy (Feb. 7-8, Feb. 28-March 1, March 28-29), Refinery29 (Feb. 21-22), Cool Hunting (March 7-8), and Fred Flare (date to be announced). More curators will be announced soon. Guest curators will create their own environments inside the market where visitors can shop and meet the creatives behind their favorite brands.
