The Flea is Invading Philly!

13872_365117086930905_39928538_nThe Brooklyn Flea, that is. The beloved market/craft sale/food fair is set to debut 100+ vendors at the Piazza in Northern Liberties this summer. Every Sunday, starting June 2nd, from 10am-5pm, you can shop antiques, vintage clothing, jewelry, art, and crafts, and taste delicious food, from a mix of local AND Brooklyn-based vendors.  Racked Philly has a look at what to add to your shopping list, from vintage martini glasses to Turkish cotton towels to a 1920s beaded dress. Bring cash (not all vendors will take cards) and your appetite - this is likely to be your new summer shopping destination.
