Brooklyn Vintage Crawl Returns This Weekend

This Sunday marks the return of Vintage Crawl, a shop and bar hop through Williamsburg and Greenpoint. This year’s crawl is unique, as they’ll be helping with the Hurricane Sandy relief. From the organizers:

The Brooklyn Vintage Crawl is officially back!  The first shopping experience of its kind to hit the New York scene, is hosting its Fall Crawl on Sunday, November 11th from Noon-8pm. Last year’s inaugural event drew nearly 1,000 shoppers and thousands of dollars in single-day sales–overall, a neighborly great time!

This premier event will feature a self-led bargain hunt through the best vintage shops in Williamsburg and Greenpoint.  Our map featuring all discounts and promotions throughout the neighborhood is available through the mobile platform,  Domino Street, which makes The Vintage Crawl accessible to mobile smartphone users before and during the Crawl at www.vintagecrawl.com.

Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts will be a suggested $1-$5 donation added to each purchase.  All proceeds will be donated to New York Cares, specifically for Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts in the NYC area.
