Located in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, BLK MKT Vintage is my favorite place to browse and find nice things for the home. They specialize in everything vintage: art, clothes, records, books, magazines, jacket pins and they all celebrate Black businesses, artists and creators. It’s one of those places where time stops because you’re so busy just looking at every single thing displayed in the store. It’s hard to not leave the store without at least having bought one thing.
The shop is only open on the weekends. It’s owned by a very busy couple so check the website or their Instagram to make sure the store is open the day you go. Sometimes they’re closed because of weather, special event or hiatus. But it’s truly worth the visit, especially if you want to take back something unique and special from your NYC trip.
