This weekend, the Cut braved the heatwave and headed over to Brooklyn's brand new Dekalb Market and had a look around. Turns out, the market is pretty food-centric, but there's still goods to be found in the clothing and accessories containers. They report: "Though the shopping scene isn't quite up to par with that of the Brooklyn Flea yet (it's heavy on crafty jewelry and light on vintage and womenswear), there are some attractive new vendors to peruse, from twisted suede earrings by Alicia P., to restored vintage sunglasses at 66 Black Birds, to vintage garb from Honeysuckle & Hearts."
Vintage clothes at Honeysuckle & Hearts from the sixties, seventies, and eighties start at $20 for tops and about $50 for dressses, and vintage frames at Yak Blak's 66 Blak Bird range from $120 to $200. At Pop Chart Lab, you can score vintage typewriters, T-shirts, and posters, which include this amazing one entitled "Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names." There's also kids clothes from Hank & Jojo, and an upcoming Pratt pop-up shop, which must have decided it wasn't quite ready for opening weekend.
