The upstairs lounge at Blackbyrd, 2005 14th Street NW, will become a flea market on the next two Sundays, March 18 and March 25. The pop-up vintage fashion event, DC Flea, is being organized by Philissa Williams and Dafna Steinberg — who hope to bring a little bit more than just the browsing to the shopping. Williams and Steinberg said music and drinks will be available at the bar. Hours are noon to 6 pm on both Sundays.
“March will be our first month and we are hoping for it to be a success,” says Steinberg.
Men’s and women’s vintage clothes and accessories (plus some other goodies) will be on display. There will be a number of different sellers there, so stop by for some great fashion finds!
On Friday, November 24, POP-UP VINTAGE is partnering with the DC Center for the LGBT Community for a “Buy Nothing New Day.”

What exactly is POP-UP VINTAGE? It’s best to lack them describe themselves in their own words:
“POP-UP VINTAGE is a monthly vintage clothing, art, books and houseware shop. POP-UP features a carefully curated selection of men’s and women’s clothing, including t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, dresses, pants and accessories. And some kick-ass Adidas lowtops. And pair of blue leather fuck-me boots. And high-heel cowboy boots.
“POP-UP has an extensive collection of framed art, including graphic prints, indie rock touring posters and vintage erotica. POP-UP has a selection of unique housewares at sub-Target prices. POP-UP sells books from the sixties with INSANELY trippy covers.”
