17 Of Brooklyn Flea's Most Stylish Thrifters

Photographed by Chantal Adair.
The best part about a weekend afternoon at Brooklyn Flea doesn't always involve finding an unexpected treasure at the bottom of a $10 bin. Or, the moment when you finally get to the front of the line at the Dough stand. Nope, for our money, it's all about the people watching. More specifically, the weekend looks you spot on some of the city's most hardcore thrifters — a special breed of shopper who you can easily identify thanks to their slightly off-kilter ensembles. Their mantra? Weird and creative trumps predictable and boring every day of the week.
Last weekend, we hit up the Flea to do a little street style stalking and walked away with some delightful snaps of vintage lovers that will inspire you to be a little more daring. Or, at the very least, make you smile. Ahead, see 17 well-clad shoppers who prove the just-rolled-out-of-bed weekend look is a thing of the past.
