I happened upon this as I was walking down Leonard Street towards Meeker Avenue. They were busy painting the interior a sunny shade of yellow.

As you can see no expense has been spared on advertising.

  2. Does this mean that ‘painting’ of the buses on the Meeker Avenue side of the building is no more?

  4. “Thurs. & Fri. & Sat. & Sun.”

    Because “Thu-Sun” would require Fleapers to know the sequence of the days of the week.

  6. I received a flyer for this place last week at Union Square and you’re 100% right, no expense has been spared in their advertising. I thinking of opening a booth in this place. I will be checking it out soon. The girl I spoke to on the phone gave me some great prices. I’ll blog back to let you know what it is as soon as I get a chance to visit.

  10. I came by to check out the market last Saturday to see how the vendors were doing. Before stepping in, I was struck by the ginormous signs (which are quite large in person) Very interesting place… it seems to give off a sort of garage/grunge/Williamsburg-chic aura when you walk in. There’s like a tropical-type set up of plants at the entrance (which is an overhead garage door). I spotted a few dozen vendors Saturday and there was alot of foot traffic. I was told they have a street team frequenting the area and I heard a few customers talk about a gigantic flea market bus frequenting the area as well. I am strongly considering selling here. The price isnt tooo steep and its getting nippy out here (plus they told me they have heat in the winter) a defineate plus, lol. :-)

    BTW, has anyone else visited yet?

  12. I began selling here on the very first week it opened. Wow! The stories I could tell you (if I wanted to be sued for libel). It started off slow, but is quickly filling up. Some vendors are making good money, some aren’t faring so well. What this place needs is more vintage, more junk, more fashion, more art, more craftsmanship. Its Williamsburg, so the people with the money are fast hit with that swinging dead cat. They come to the flea and want to spend money. Im doing well with books and handmade woodcraft. A friend and I are going to start a new “Mid modern furniture” booth in a couple weeks (the furniture is still being gathered from far and wide). So come visit and contribute to the growth of what could be an important mainstay of the Williamsburg community.

Tell me what you're thinking...
