The Pop Up Flea, that temporary bastion of fancy man-cessories, returns this weekend to Metropolitan Pavilion with a big twist: For the first time ever, they'll sell womenswear alongside the usual dosage of Filson bags and Baxter of California beard combs.

"A lot of women would come to the event with their guys and they wouldn't have anywhere to shop. And they wanted to shop! I know this to be true because my wife told me that we need women's brands. And when my wife tells me something, I listen," co-founder Michael Williams told Style.com.

While dudes hit up the men's booths—Billykirk, Ernest Alexander, Man of the World, Woolrich—women will now be able to escape into Steven Alan womenswear, upscale tye-dye by Upstate, Digby & Iona jewelry, and Clare V. leather goods.

Plus, this year there'll also be a custom fragrance bar courtesy of Nova, where you can blend three scents into your very own rollerball. For hours and a full vendor list, head here.
