Gifted: Brooklyn Flea's Holiday Market Open Daily


I’m guessing that you don’t have your Christmas shopping done. Even if you have it mostly under control, you probably still have the impossible to shop for people, like your weird cousin or grandpa, and you’re completely at a loss for what to get them. And you probably also have a job, which limits your shopping hours substantially. Brooklyn Flea knows you’re gonna be scrambling the next few days, so they’re making it slightly easier. Gifted, their holiday market, is open from now until the 23rd. (Normally, Brooklyn Flea is only open on the weekends).

Even if you have no clue what you’re looking for, you’ll get an idea as you browse through old hunting targets, puny T shirts, vintage maps, locally made shiny jewelry, animal shaped pillows…It may be a cluster fuck, but it will be less of one than Union Square or any big box store. Also, being in the basement of the old Williamsburg Savings Bank is one of the coolest shopping experiences ever, it’s filled with gold maps of Brooklyn, giant safety deposit box doors and old teller desks.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
