If you favor handmade or one-of-a-kind gifts, shop your flea's holiday market instead of fighting the crowds at the mall.
Brooklyn Flea's "Gifted" holiday market opens for the season this weekend at the indoor Skylight One Hanson location. Gifted takes place each Saturday and Sunday from November 24 through December 23. Market hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The second annual Treasure Island Flea Holiday Weekend takes place this Saturday and Sunday, November 24 and 25, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In addition to lots of shopping, the weekend events include a toy drive for Bay Area children and several DIY workshops. A portion of the workshop proceeds also go to charity.
