Shopping Til You Drop @ DEKALB MARKET (Bklyn)

Last week the Dekalb Market opened its "doors" in Brooklyn (located where Albee Square Mall used to be). This cool shopping and eatery mecca is what downtown Brooklyn needs! Its unique in scale where each vendor has its own crate unit that they've revamped and decorated with their special touches creating a cosy mini store. As a shopper, you can find any and everything from hang bags, jewels, tees and fashionista couture. As a foodie, you can nosh on donuts, organic teas, salads, chicken/beef sandwiches and cupcakes. And as a music buff, the vinyl is spun all day long by the DJ at the BBox Radio Station (on the market's kick off day DJ Spinna and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have spun a set here) as you lounge in the tent's shade and cool breeze. Lastly you can find the miscellaneous/strange/oddities including artwork featuring little cartoon creatures to add to your wall's diverse motif by Kudulah.

SR's Chante sipped on Moroccan mint iced tea courtesy of Tea by Tiffany which was DELISH, picked up a Brooklyn tote designed by Brooklyn Rock and got a cute skirt/dress at Harriets by Hekima.

Needless to say the Synch Ladies will make another return to do more shopping since there are more vendors to come!
