Flea Circus Friday!

  If it's Friday, it must be fashion.

I had a lot of fun scouting for style last weekend at the Long Beach Antiques and Collectibles Market -and even managed to get in a little shopping of my own.


This weekend, (the 4th Saturday/Sunday of the Month) here's what's happening:

The last (Brooklyn Flea) outdoor market of the year!
"The approach of Thanksgiving (and, this year, Hanukkah) means the Flea and Smorgasburg prepare for their outdoor finale in Fort Greene, Williamsburg, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. This weekend, November 23+24 will be the last markets of the season..."_Brooklyn Flea blog

Last week, a reader wisely suggested I also provide info on upcoming shows to allow folks time to plan! Great idea! Here's what should be on your radar:

(The largest antiques show in Northern California)

Brooklyn Flea
Brooklyn, NY
On the move...
"As always, this winter we move indoors, but with a big change: Having outgrown _from the Brooklyn Flea blog Skylight One Hanson (we bid you a fond adieu, old bank!), the Flea is moving to mammoth new digs in Williamsburg every weekend starting Nov. 30/Dec. 1: a 50,000 sf space at 80 North 5th St. (at Wythe Ave.) with room for 200 vendors, including 75 food vendors. That means for the first time ever, Smorgasburg will operate year-round, and you'll be able to shop and chow your way through a proper giant market for the holidays and colder months. We can't wait to share our new space with everyone.

We'll be open 10am-7pm through Dec. 21/22, and 10am-6pm for the rest of the winter (through March, 2014)."


There are so many cool cities across America - I know I am missing key vintage markets! If there's a great antiques & collectible market in your neck of the woods -please let me know! Share the love -and the dates and info! Leave me a message in the comments below! Thanks!
