It’s hard out here in Brooklyn. Every day, we’re bamboozled with a dizzying array of pop-up shops and vintage stores, ephemeral, hidden worlds that seem to promise so much, only we never hear about them until after the fact, it seems. Where’s a style-conscious Kings County taxpayer to score some one-of-a-kind duds and a comical cross stitch?
This is what we’re here for. On Friday, from 7:30 p.m. to midnight, Thrift Disco is popping-up shop at the co-working space Bat Haus, located at 279 Starr Street, in Bushwick. Promising “brooklyn’s finest vintage & handmade vendors” (and free next day delivery!), the shop will include zines and handmade crafts from Daniel Zender, Ksen, and Poor Kitty Crafts; a wide array of vintage clothing from muzukashii onna, Diana Joy, 100 Percent Silk, Urban CowgURL, and I Could Rock That; and jewelry from Missbatch and Pink Midnight. There’s also beer and wine available on a donation basis (though you can also BYOB), and live music from deejays Muke and Euclid.
So that’s everything the discerning Brooklynite would want in a pop-up shop, right? Admission is free. For a full rundown of the event and to check out all the vendors more thoroughly, go here.
