Lionel and Constant, the guys behind regular Brooklyn Flea booth Nenenn155, are Haitian-born brothers with families in Brooklyn. On Monday, they flew to Haiti to visit their mother, and the people behind the Flea haven't heard from them since. There will be a Red Cross collection box at the kiosk in the front of the One Hanson lobby this weekend; if you go, do donate. [Brooklyn Flea]
