Amy Abrams and Ronen Glimer started Artists & Fleas in 2003 as a Sunday side project in a Williamsburg warehouse where “people hung out and a DJ sold sake and sushi and there was no heat." It wasn't long before Artists & Fleas became a bi-coastal shopping mecca with the opening of our LA markets in 2014.
Along the way, small businesses have blossomed and New York institutions have grown because of the experiences garnered through Artists & Fleas. Take a look at Six New York Stores That Grew Out of Williamsburg's Artists & Fleas – you might recognize a few (or all) of them.
As we look forward to opening our second daily location – in Soho – we look forward to the growth and discovery that inevitably follow. Here's to the extraordinary shopping experiences yet to come!
