Brooklyn Flea Presents: The Greenjeans Fall Furniture Festival!

From the barn workshops of Vermont to the lofts of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, our region is full of talented furniture makers who rarely get a chance to show their work in the Big City.

That is about to change because this fall the fine folks of the fabulous Brooklyn Flea will present the first Greenjeans Fall Furniture Festival!

The Greenjeans Fall Furniture Festival will take place over the four Sundays in October under a big tent at Fort Greene’s popular outdoor market, the Brooklyn Flea. (The Sundays are 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, and 10/26.)

Each Sunday, we will present work by a co-curated group of six to eight different furniture makers, focusing on the kind of furniture you need – chairs, counter-height stools, end tables, coffee tables, and more.

As always, we will offer as much ecologically responsible work as possible, including furniture made from reclaimed or sustainably-produced materials and treated with non-toxic finishes. All furniture presented will be the makers' own designs and beautifully crafted. And we’re focusing on local furniture makers (Brooklyn and surrounding 200 miles radius or so), but are open to more distant possibilities, too.

For a roster of furniture makers in the Festival, details about a great raffle, and more, stay tuned to the Furniture Festival page on our website.

The Furniture Festival will also kick off the new phase of Greenjeans, and (hopefully) will correspond with the opening of our new location. Stay tuned for more on that, too…

To learn more or if you're a furniture maker interested in possibly participating, contact us.

Come discover a bounty of fresh local furniture this October at the Greenjeans Fall Furniture Festival!

Greenjeans, I'm counting down to the Funiture Festival!! I've been searching forever for a tall cabinet/bookcase with two glass doors. Sort of like a hutch without the breakfront or draws. Any hints on vendors to checkout?
