By now you’ve heard of the Dekalb Market, where local artisans and foodists peddle their wares in shipping containers parked on the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Willoughby Street. But are there deals lurking in those the steel-encased shops? Here’s what we found on a Brokelyn-style scout…
Designs By Alicia P features a $30 and under shelf and ring sale. Floga carries custom jewelry, from many designers, ranging from $5-$50. In addition, they sell leather sandals hand made in Greece. Prices start at $45 but as summer goes on, they will offer end-of-summer sales.
If you prefer to meet the designer and support a fellow Brooklynite, check out Kerrie Yeung’s booth. With a rotating 10% off sale, rings as low as $10, and bracelets made of wooden and ceramic beads for $5, the best jewelry deals are found there. Additionally, this fall Kerrie will be offering classes at her Gowanus studio. Ask her about special rates for Brokelyn readers. (But wait, isn’t that everyone?)
Brooklyn Bodega carries vinyl at $4.99 and up, or ask for a card good for 10 free downloads. If you’d like to let everyone know you love house music, Designed by Domino offers a variety of cool t-shirts and tanks for $15.
No visit to the market is complete without a bite. Standouts include Mazie’s Bites’ fish tacos (2 for $9.50, with slaw), but the best deal in the whole market is Cuzin’s Duzin’s Hot Fresh Mini Donuts. You can get 6 for $2, or 14 for $3!
The Dekalb Market is open every day from 8am – 10pm. Weekend vendors are there from 10am – 7pm. For more information go to dekalbmarket.com.
