Brooklyn Flea and Time Out New York Present: Gifted: A Holiday Market

OK, so I'm pretty much pulling this all straight from the press release:

Gifted: A Holiday Market
4 Sundays: Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 & 21
Brooklyn Masonic Temple, 317 Clermont Ave. (at Lafayette Ave.), Fort Greene (across from the Flea)

Brooklyn Flea has partnered with Time Out New York to present "Gifted: A Holiday Market," featuring 40 vendors curated by Flea co-founder Eric Demby and Time Out Seek Editor Erin Wylie.
Gifted will take place inside the majestic auditorium of the Brooklyn Masonic Temple—a historic, gorgeous building located directly across the street from the Flea—on the 4 Sundays Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 + 21, from 11am to 6pm.
(The “regular” Flea will continue at the schoolyard during this time; Dec. 21 will be the last date of the season.) The mix of vendors at Gifted is similar to the Flea: stuff you can only find there; folks selling beautiful, unique items they made themselves; vintage/antique objects that are distinctive and affordable; snazzy jewelry; cool, quality art; and of course yummy foodstuffs.

Highlights include: Layla, the gorgeous jewelry and Indian textiles shop in Boerum Hill; Acorn, the classy toy shop on Atlantic Ave.; Els Walleyn’s beautiful mohair teddy bears—all the way from Belgium!; Flea regular David Sokosh, who will be featuring amazing antique clocks (“the gift of time for Christmas”)...The full lineup is below; visit http://www.brooklynflea.com/ for images and weblinks.)
DJ Moosaka will provide holiday tunes from the stage, and surprise holiday-theme events will pop up every Sunday.
Make a connection with the person you’re buying from; support someone who lives in your neighborhood; give a gift there’s only one of. That's what 2008 New Yorkers want, right? Right.
