Best Flea Market (For Now) - 2008
Hurry! The wonderful Garage flea market, in what was formerly known as the Chelsea antiques district?can we still call it that when most of the markets have been pushed out by high-rise apartment buildings??is rumored to be shuttered in November. The great strength of the Garage is its variety?not just junky costume jewelry but Deco diamonds, not just kitschy paint-by-numbers efforts, but 19th-century oil paintings?all in a delightfully funky, musty, soon-to-be-vanished setting.
