You’ll find anything from jewelry to accessories to bicycle parts to home decor.




Brooklyn Flea

Where it is: One Hanson Place, Brooklyn

When it is: Sat. and Sun., 10am-5pm

What you’ll find: While the flea market is usually outside, they move their location to the former Williamsburg Savings Bank at One Hanson Place during the winter. Founded in April 2008, Brooklyn Flea features hundreds of vendors every weekend selling antique and repurposed furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles, and handmade jewelry, art, and crafts by local artisans and designers. They also sell freshly made food.




Chelsea Antiques Garage

Where it is: 112 West 25th Street, Manhattan

What you’ll find: Part of the Annex/Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market (HKFM) triad of markets, the Chelsea Antiques Garage has been open every weekend since 1994.

It may seem a bit sketchy at first when you enter the dimly lit covered garage, but you can find things here that aren’t available anywhere else, which definitely makes it worth a visit.
