 This past weekend was packed with vintage shopping events. One that I couldn't miss was A Current Affair vintage pop held at Industry City. It was my first time at Industry City and it was epic. 

Industry City is a historic shipping, warehousing and manufacturing complex on the water in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. I loved this area the moment I laid eyes on the industrial buildings and felt the buzz of people walking to and from the building where A Current Affair was being held. Everyone seemed to have a smile on their face and the street vendors outside of the building were very welcoming.

My heart was racing as soon as I walked inside the 220 36th street building. I loved the energy of the place and its industrial and historic look and feel. I couldn't believe that I hadn't been there before. It was such a cool place with a great mix of food, art and events. It was the perfect venue for my main reason for visiting, A Current Affair.

It was my first time at this vintage pop up marketplace. The ads on Facebook and Instagram lured me in and made this a can't miss shopping event. I just had to check out in person all the great vintage pieces from social media I'd seen promoting the event. The pop up space was everything I expected and more. I loved the oldies music playing, the welcoming aroma coming from the candles burning at the People of 2morrow section and the delicious complementary coffee. There were tons of dealers all with racks of beautiful boho dresses, embroidered blouses, colorful jackets and sweaters and out of this world jewelry and accessories. 

I had a jam packed day and I have so much regret for not having more time to spend at A Current Affair. I'll be there next time for sure and will devote the whole day to exploring every rack and chatting up every vintage dealer there!

Did you attend A Current Affair this past weekend at Industry City? Or have you gone to the pop up in the past? What's your experience been there? Also, have you explored Industry City? 

Love,
