Kicking off a tour that will include stops in Los Angeles and Tokyo, Michael Williams’ Pop-Up Flea will take place in New York City this weekend at The Metropolitan Building, 123 West 18th Street.
Williams, who is also the co-owner of marketing and communications agency Paul + Williams and editor-in-chief of influential men’s website, A Continuous Lean, founded the Pop-Up Flea in 2009 with Randy Goldberg to support small brands.
“We have assembled over 40 great purveyors under one roof to get the men of NYC ready for anything the warm weather calls for,” says Williams. “From swimwear from Onia and Panama hats to customized leather goods from Billykirk and watches from TUDOR, the Pop Up Flea offers shoppers a diverse array of great merchandise and good vibes. With support from the #ShopSmall movement, the mission of the Pop Up Flea is to empower and promote the small brands that focus on making good things.”
#PUFSUN, the flea’s latest incarnation will be “its lightest and brightest iteration,” offering lobster rolls from Luke’s Lobster, haircuts and shaves from Freemans Sporting Club, and on-site indigo dying from Buaisou.
