More Brooklyn: Atlantic Antic

Anyone who lives in or around NYC knows that street fairs tend to be kind of a bust. I'm not sure why but 90% of them seem to be overrun by booths selling socks warehouse style or pushing shamwows. So when we decided to stop by the Atlantic Antic this weekend, my expectations were low. Much to my delight, this street fair was a winner. The food was varied and delish, loads of great booths selling interesting items, etc.

Some great items for browsing and buying.

Like these adorable robot organic tee's from Lunacy Design. I lusted after that antique embalming fluid bottle from a vendor selling glassware found in the ground but I was too cheap to spring for it. This pretty compact adorned with beautiful photography from Citybitz would make a great souvenir in my humble opinion. And these cool image transfer signs on wood - I wonder if there a simple way to DIY that?

Of course it wouldn't be a street fair without some stellar street food to feast on.

All in all, a winner. Big hand to whoever organizes this event. We'll be adding the Atlantic Antic one to our annual must do list.

  1. That looks like so much fun! And that last pic of the oysters and crab legs has my mouth watering. I wonder if my sister made it out! (she lives in Park Slope)...

  4. I really want to get a few letters to use around my home. I love the way they look. Hmm, guess I'll have to find some sort of street fare around Dallas.

  8. VERY cool! Is S for your surname or is it for you? Where are you planning on putting it? Would love to see a pic once you find a home for it. Seeing all that good food made me hungry, off to eat my oatmeal, sigh.

    I am sure it was fun; but I was trying to get to my sister in Carroll Gardens(coming from Long Island). Ended up having to go back through Brooklyn Heights and around a convoluted way. Wish I had known about the street fair beforehand. They are not fun if you have to get somewhere by car!
