Vinyl enthusiasts know there is a huge selection of vinyl at multiple stalls at the flea market. You can find vintage records such as The Beatles, Prince, Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Alice Cooper, and more. People said MP3s would take over the music world, but it seems records are here to stay. You can also go even farther back in time and purchase an authentic Victrola or 78 records.
Street style in Manhattan is nothing without Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market. There is vintage and new items. You can find a new, embellished French Connection dress that costs $300, but at the flea it is only $30! There are a ton of vintage fur coats, army uniforms, leather jackets, vintage dresses, petticoats, button-down shirts as well. There is also clothing from many parts of the world.
3. Jewelry & Accessories
It would not be a flea market with the wonderful collection of jewelry. There is vintage silver pieces that are a steal, handmade jewelry from local artisans in New York City, beaded necklaces from other countries, antique pins, rings, bracelets, cufflinks, and more. Some vendors sell lapel pins, which are huge right now. For accessories, there are purses, shoes (including spiked platforms!), masks, army bags, vintage designer handbags, vintage glasses, and many other reasonably priced items. There are even old fire hats to get ready for Halloween.
Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market has many local artists that have booths. They also have a grant program you should check out! Anyways, not only is there new art you could buy at a reasonable price… there is vintage and antique art too! There are vintage lithographic prints, screen prints, band posters, sculptures, paintings, and more!
5. Antique & Vintage Home Décor
