DUMBO—This weekend's Brooklyn Flea is curated by our friends over at Refinery29. We'll let them explain: "We're bringing some of our favorite boutiques-friends with us including In God We Trust, Thistle & Clover, Smith + Butler, and Honey in the Rough. Shop top-notch R29-approved goods—including I.G.W.T. jewelry, discounted designer clothing, and much much more." The winter Flea is at 81 Front Street and Washington Street, and it runs 11am to 6pm both Saturday and Sunday. [Refinery29]
