Wow! The location of the Brooklyn Flea on Saturdays in wintertime is just amazing. Located in the ground and basement levels of the old Wiiliamsberg savings bank building, now called 1 Hanson Place, a fabulous Art Deco cathedral to commerce which is a stunning environment for all the crafts, vintage clothes and antiques. Stalls weave in and out where home insuarance was once sold, and between the old bank tellers booths, and most dramatically in the old bank vaults in the basement where the steel doors can still be seen, massive works of engineers art amongst the old carpets and New York tee shirts.
And the market is great- a mix of vintage clothes, maps, toys, New York bits and bobs, jewellery old and new - check out the 1970's Elizabeth Taylor style bling of the first order; lots of intriguing stalls for any market lover. Next week is their last winter week before they move outside for the summer. An opportunity to see a wonderful Brooklyn landmark building and find some interesting purchases for your friends back home. I loved it.
