What starts the day after Thanksgiving? Why holiday shopping, of course. But don’t get your relatives in the ’burbs something they can already buy themselves at the mall. The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is a shopping party that brings together dozens of creative indie artisans as well as food (Asia Dog, Luke’s Lobster, DUB Pies), drinks, and music. Find artsy skateboards from A Little Beast, contemporary pieces for the home from AMINIMAL Studio, lacy tights from PeekBrooklyn, handcrafted veils and cocktail hats from Dollsville NYC, and fragrant candles from BondToo. Starting Saturday, the Brooklyn Flea takes it indoors for their Gifted Holiday Market, three floors of more than a hundred vendors, including Blue Hill Market and Big Sur Bakery, over the next five weekends. You’re welcome! Brooklyn Night Bazaar runs Fridays and Saturdays from 6 to midnight, through December 22, 45 North 5th Street, Brooklyn, bkbazaar.com.
Saturdays, Sundays, 11 p.m. Starts: Nov. 24. Continues through Dec. 23, 2012
