Macy's style-blog–obsessed clothing line Bar III is about to embark on a tour of flea markets around the country, starting this weekend at two locations in New York. Downtown, the pop-up will be at the Hester Street Fair, while uptown, you can find it at GreenFlea on Columbus Avenue between W. 76th and W. 77th Streets.
At each spot, the brand plans to set up a tent stocked with the summer collection, which includes clothes for both sexes, accessories, and some housewares. "Flea ambassador" Aimee Song, the blogger behind Song of Style, will be on hand to offer styling advice. Shoppers can try everything on, but you won't be able to walk out with a bag. Instead, when it comes time to buy, you'll check out with an iPad-wielding staffer, and Macy's will ship you the merchandise free of charge. Spend over $100, and they'll toss in a tote bag.
Here's the complete list of stops on the tour:
May 5, 10am—6pm - Hester Street Fair, New York
May 6, 10am—5:30pm - GreenFlea, New York
