Gifted Takes over Tower Records Space in NYC

November 10, 2009 BY CAPSULESNEWS


The FortGreene and Dumbo-based Brooklyn Flea will make its first foray into Manhattan on Black Friday, launching a monthlong "Gifted" holiday market in the EastVillage. The 6,500-square-foot pop-up takes over the former Tower Records storefront and will feature more than 50 rotating vendors, including clothing from Thistle & Clover and Tucker, shoes from Coclico, knitwear by A.S.I.S., jewelry by Loyalty & Blood, Erica Weiner, and Lillian Crowe, and more. The Flea also teamed up with editors at Lucky , who will host happy-hour shopping parties, complete with D.J.'s from Other Music (the record shop across the street) and free small-batch beer from Brooklyn Brew Shop.
