Flea First

April 4, 2014 9:00 am

Wax up your moustaches, gents – The Brooklyn Flea is back this weekend just in time for two consecutive days of decent weather. New locations, new vendors. Your punch list:

For Your Crib:

Brooklyn Outfit Gowanus Furniture peddles a range of seriously suave wood gear, including clever balancing wine racks, handsome shelves to hold your bike and the most patriotic cutting board in the game. Though strangely, no actual furniture.

And since the walls need stuff besides bikes, check out Intaglio Antique Prints and Maps — killer old-school cartography of everything from the constellations to our own fair city, plus vintage illustrations that would make Rudyard Kipling jealous.

For Your Body:

Skinny jeans these ain’t – flea newcomers Hartford Denim Company craft workwear-inspired dungarees out of beefy Japanese and Cone Mills selvedge, backed by a lifetime guarantee of free repairs. We suggest the 10.5 oz. Cone Mills Indigo Duck.

For Your Mouth:

New grub vendors abound. Two with our attention: Bronx Baking Co., who’ve figured out that, unsurprisingly, warm soft pretzels are better wrapped in bacon. Also on the scene, Fort Greene fav Martha dishing out their much-ballyhooed fried chicken with a General Tso glaze. Must try.
