It’s that time of year again when we all get stressed out about what to buy our loved ones. Thankfully, there are several markets and pop-ups coming your way to help make the season a little bit brighter (and hopefully less stressful).
First off, two markets are coming to the Brooklyn Bazaar. On December 2 and 3, The Oddities Flea Market will offer a wide selection of gift ideas for those on your list who have a taste for the macabre. Then, on December 17 there’s the Sugar x Spice Holiday Makers Market offering more conventional, crafty fare.
The Oddities Flea Market, December 2 and 3 at Brooklyn Bazaar:
The Oddities Flea Market curated by Ryan Matthew Cohn is returning for the holidays! We are thrilled about the results of our early entry and two day event, so we are continuing to host a weekend long event with VIP early entry tickets. Inside, you’ll find a wonderful assemblage of vendors bringing you all sorts of peculiar items for holiday gift list! Feast your eyes on medical history ephemera, anatomical curiosities, natural history items, osteological specimens, taxidermy, jewelry, one of a kind art, bizarre flair, and more. For this market exclusively we are featuring special fashion designers and beauty products from a variety of businesses around the country. We are sure you’ll find something for that friend or family that is dark at heart. Added to the excitement we will have special appearances from our favorite holiday characters!
