Check Out the Newest Artists & Fleas Location in Soho
July 14, 2017 by
If you’ve been to Chelsea Market, you’ve inevitably passed by a place called Artists & Fleas. Most likely, you’ve stopped in to explore and perhaps found some interesting trinkets. Maybe, if you’re an Artists & Fleas enthusiast, you’ve even been to the Williamsburg location opened on weekends. Well, in case you haven’t already heard, a brand new Artists & Fleas has recently opened in SOHO, and its reputation may even surpass that of its two older siblings.
Artists & Fleas SOHO is filled with a diverse mix ranging from independent artists and designers to vintage collectors. While some vendors will remain constant at this location, others are on a biweekly rotation, making it all the more fun due to its unpredictable nature. You will always be able to find something different and new to enjoy at this SOHO location.
Here are some of our favorites so far:
This place is a vintage shoppers dream! Here you will find tons of unique jewelry and clothing dating from the 1940’s to the 80’s. The jewelry collection is what impressed us most. This store is the perfect place to score some classic, one of a kind bling to take your outfit to the next level.
Looking for some rad new art to brighten up the walls of your apartment? Here’s where you should buy it. NYC Recycling Maps, based out of DOJO Studios in Brooklyn, uses silkscreen techniques as well as spray paint and stenciling to create their work. And, the best part: all of their prints are created on top of old New York maps. With every one of these maps, you get a little taste of old New York in the background of thoughtful and colorful artwork – not to mention the maps are recycled.

After speaking with Rhea, the artist behind the jewelry above, we developed an appreciation for the love and effort that goes into each one of her jewelry designs. Each beautiful, dainty piece seems to have a story behind it, just like the wonderful woman who made them all.
