Hester Street Fair Round-up

On Sunday June 6, Vintage Thrift hit the wide open roads heading downtown and ended up parking its "pop-up shop" at the highly touted Hester St. Fair in Lower East Side. Co-created by former MTV reporter SuChin Pak, the fair is unlike other flea markets in that vendors change from week to week. Their reasons are doubly smart: to keep the selection fresh and to broaden LES community involvement.

Vintage Thrift is especially happy to be involved, as many of our donations are received from the nearby Grand St. Co-op. In a beautiful twist of karma, the proceeds from the donations benefit the United Jewish Council's senior citizen center, located in the same area.

The fair runs each Saturday and Sunday 10am-6pm through December, so you'll have plenty of chances to check it out. And if Luke's Lobster Roll is there, do yourself a favor and splurge on the combo.
