Brooklyn Flea will reach Park Slope, assimilating the flea market that normally sets up outside of PS321 (180 7th Ave.) on weekends. PS321 made the announcement on Thursday, so consider it a non-hostile takeover:
We are excited to announce that the Brooklyn Flea will be taking over the flea market that takes place on Saturdays and Sundays outside of PS 321 beginning Columbus Day weekend! Founded in April 2008, Brooklyn Flea has grown into one of New York City’s top attractions, operating flea markets every weekend of the year that feature vendors of antique and repurposed furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques, as well as a tightly curated selection of jewelry, art, and crafts by local artisans and designers. We hope you will all enjoy this new addition to our neighborhood!
With over 40 vendors, this will be smaller than the Williamsburg and Fort Greene locations.
