In only a few months, Brownstoner's ambitious Brooklyn Flea will debut, and right now, the market's organizers are looking for more vendors to sign up. From a letter sent out by Brooklynite-about-town Eric Demby: "The Flea is starting to take shape, and I'd love your help putting it over the top. If you know anyone who would want to be a vendor at the market, please send 'em my way. So far we have everything from vintage furniture and clothing dealers to cookie bakers and ricotta makers to record and bicycle sellers and jewelry designers. But we want more." So if you're a crafty type who's jonesing to sell your homemade wares somewhere other than Etsy, perhaps you should drop Eric a line. The much-anticipated flea (locally-sourced ricotta! vintage furniture!) will open in April.
