The traditionally outdoor Brooklyn Flea is moving indoors to some sweet digs in the New Year. Come January 9, the market is moving to Skylight One Hanson, or the Williamsburg Savings Bank Tower, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, where it will remain every weekend through March. The space is the perfect place to trade vintage goods, as it's an antique in itself — a landmarked building that houses vaulted ceilings and tiled murals, as well as visual remnants of a bank, such as kiosks, teller rooms, and even a vault with three-ton doors. "It's a really amazing space that hasn't been open to the public for a really long time," says Brooklyn Flea founder Eric Demby. "I think it's one of the most beautiful and historic interior spaces in Brooklyn." The location allows for more than 100 vendors to operate, including food (Demby wants to have the eating area inside the vault). And the larger floor area makes it seem "more like the regular flea," he adds, only it's inside.
Brooklyn Flea Winter Market, 1 Hanson Pl., at Flatbush Ave. Saturdays and Sundays from 1/9 to 3/28.
