Calling all urban treasure seekers!
The renowned shoppers’ paradise Brooklyn Flea is expanding to Philly this summer.

Look for vintage furniture from At Home Modern, Circa Dee and Dig This, with upcycled furniture from Chairloom and The Paint Wagon.
Vintage clothing dealers include Esther Woo Vintage and Hinterland Vintage, with handmade goods by Forage Haberdashery and Peg & Awl.
Finally, like its brothers it New York, Brooklyn Flea Philly is set to tap food vendors fit for connoisseurs. On opening day, come hungry for tastes from local fave Lil’ Pop Shop, Princeton-born The Bent Spoon, Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue, Ovenly and sandwich hero Paesano’s, as well as Brooklyn Flea staples Grady’s Cold Brew and Red Hook Lobster Pound.
