Remember the one-day-a-week holiday market we threw last December at the Masonic Temple? Well, we’re gonna take it up a notch (or two) this year. For the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas, The Brooklyn Flea will be hosting its Gifted Holiday Market in one of the old Tower Records spaces at the corner of Lafayette and East 4th Street in Manhattan. (We tried to get our hands on every large space in Downtown Brooklyn but couldn’t find a single spot that worked.) Our friends at >Lucky Magazine will also be curating a portion of the event with a rotating cast of their favorite fashion and jewelry designers. The month-long stand will run from November 27 to December 24, with only Mondays and Tuesdays off (except for the final week when we’ll be open every day). We’re about 80 percent booked with vendors from the existing Flea family already, but we’ve purposefully saved slots for some fresh faces, so if you know anyone who might be a good candidate, please have them shoot an email to email@example.com with “Gifted Vendor” as the subject. We’ll have more information about vendors, dj’s and Wednesday night after-work parties as we get a little closer to kick-off.
