Few things are less New York than watching Seattle and Denver play football in New Jersey over a 30-pack of Milwaukee’s Best. So start Super Bowl weekend with something singular to the city — a vintage flea market in Williamsburg.
More than 20 visiting vendors will display clothes, gems and bric-a-brac at Destination: Vintage, which takes over the Artists & Fleas warehouse space on N. 7th Street next Saturday and Sunday. The selection of available items will span seven decades, from the 1920s to the 1990.
Notable dealers include Retro Optics, haberdashery QP & Monty, jeweler Urbanus Vintage, painter and headdress designer Vera Vixeness, and houseware collector Fare Well Trading. Plus: Jolie Vintage, Champon Vintage, Gypsy Nation Vintage, Big Mouth Vintage, Lavai Maria, and Ricky Becker, who will introduce his new line of ladylike attire. Inner courtesans and bohos will have much to ooh and ahh over, and there will be shoulder pads aplenty.
Admission is free and the sale will last from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on February 1-2 (Super Bowl XLVIII kick-off time is 6:30 p.m. next Sunday.)
70 N. 7th St., between Kent & Wythe Aves.
