After a decade and a half as a staple of the Williamsburg flea market scene, Artists & Fleas is opening its fourth location, smack dab in the middle of Soho, on the corner of Prince and Broadway. Look out, Prada.
Founded by Brooklyn-based Amy Abrams and Ronen Glimer in 2003, A&F allows independent artists and designers to sell their wares (or wears. . .get it?), resulting in a hodge podge of hip stuff: vintage clothing, jewelry, leather products, art items, handbags, food, and, of course, beard oil.

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. More →
