One place to look for that authentic Brooklyn souvenir is the Williamsburg craft market, Artists & Fleas. Every weekend, this soaring loft space showcases wares from a rotating selection of craftspeople, artists, and vintage vendors. The items are all high quality and eye-catching. New and vintage fashions lean toward the current trends of 80s flashback and global bohemian. The hand-crafted goods are sure to get your attention with playful pieces like jewelry made from typewriter keys, notebooks covered in vintage illustrations, and t-shirts made from Star Wars bedsheets.
The indoor setting makes it an all-weather shopping destination. In warmer months, you can refuel at the food and beverage carts out front.
