CHELSEA—The Affordable Art Fair at the Metropolitan Pavilion wraps up on Sunday, with cool stuff to hang on your walls up for grabs starting at $100. The four-day event is hosting over 80 galleries, so there's no shortage of things to look at. Tickets are $15, and can be purchased here. [RackedWire]

FORT GREENE, WILLIAMSBURG—The outdoor version of the Brooklyn Flea returns this weekend! Saturday's festivities are at 176 Lafayette Avenue, and Sunday's are now at the East River State Park in Williamsburg. Here's a rundown of six new vendors to shop at the latter. [RackedWire]

MIDTOWN EAST—This weekend, Saks will host an ethical shopping event featuring jewelry from the brand Same Sky: a collection of hand blown glass beads that are crocheted by women in Africa living with HIV/AIDS. Proceeds from the pieces benefit the artisans; for example, the purchase of a "Hope Necklace" can buy one artisan food for an entire month. The trunk show, which commemorates the anniversary of the Rwanda Genocide, will take place from 10am to 8pm on Saturday, and 11am to 7pm on Sunday on the eighth floor. [RackedWire]
