District Flea

The best news I’ve heard in a while? That the folks behind Brooklyn Flea would be setting up shop in DC for the fall (and if things go well, and it looks like they are… again in the spring) for District Flea.

The Flea is one of my favorite things to do on a trip to New York. Every time we go, we come home with something great for the house. And District Flea was no exception. We’re on the hunt for some fun pieces for a new gallery wall behind the couch, and we found just what we were looking for.

(Now if only we could do that about 14 more times… putting together enough for a gallery wall is hard!)

District Flea runs every Saturday from now ’til November 30 (perfect for holiday shopping) at 945 Florida Ave NW, near Howard University — and it’s definitely worth the trip, especially if you’ve never been to either of the Fleas.

    I’ve been dying to go! My roommate told me about it a few weeks ago and I’ve yet to make it up there. Perhaps this weekend will finally be the perfect time to go. I love these pictures!

    Flea markets are always my favorite! We have a great one here in Ventura, but they only put it on four times a year. I would go every weekend if I could…
