The Brooklyn Flea at One Hanson Place is about to get 100 times more winsome. Next Sunday marks the debut of the indoor location's take on "Curated Corners," a Flea tradition wherein an outsider gets to run their own little section of the Flea. DailyCandy has done it, Refinery29 has done it, Lucky Magazine has done it—heck, we even did one of our own—but now the Flea is kicking things up a few notches by bringing in a bona fide retail celebrity, one Mr. Jonathan Adler. He'll be selling his own pottery and other gifts alongside vintage lighting in a special booth in the middle of the marble-walled lobby.

Then, just in case candy-colored vintage and vintage-inspired housewares aren't cute enough for you, there's going to be an ice cream social in One Hanson's basement involving a live performance by twee Scottish indie band Camera Obscura. Band members will also be selling their own merchandise and—this is the point where we literally run out of synonyms for "cute"—Blue Marble Ice Cream will be selling a special flavor they invented for the show, "The Sweetest Cream," named after the Camera Obscure song "The Sweetest Thing" (and available, if you want, with honey on top, because the band also has a song called "Honey in the Sun.")
