At some point, the new Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene will enjoy a warm and sunny spring Sunday afternoon. In the meantime, we stopped for the Round Two under yesterday's overcast sky and found a decent-sized crowd was still around, although it was thinning out as closing time started approaching. (Brooklyn Flea also got some major publicity in the Sunday Times this week.) Some new vendors we on hand selling antiques and vintage goods and there were still a lot of designers and artisans selling everything from t-shirts to art and furniture to stationary. Brownstoner reports that vendors that used to be at the Chelsea flea market will start next week. As for the "no dogs" thing remarked upon last week, signs at the entrance proclaimed that it was the policy of the school in whose yard Flea happens.
