Visit the Holiday Flea at “BAC”
Make plans to go to the Holiday Flea at “BAC” hosted at downtown Wilmington’s Brooklyn Arts Center. You should visit this weekend-long event and check out the many vendors and a wide array of vintage and retro treasures that will be available. If you still have gifts to buy, vendors come from all over the region so it shouldn’t be hard to find something special for most anyone.
Event times are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 7-9 – 3:00-9:00PM on Friday, 10AM to 5PM on Saturday, and noon to 5PM on Sunday.
If you’ve not been to the Brooklyn Arts Center, this is one of Wilmington’s finest historic downtown structures and a fantastic modern-day venue to host an event. Built in 1872, St Andrews Presbyterian Church has a rich history. The Brooklyn Arts Center structure was actually built as the second of the St Andrews Churches and is known as “Second Presbyterian.” It was such an important component in what is known as the Brooklyn District.
Historian Edward Turburg said it best that “St. Andrews Presbyterian’s integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association mark it as a significant historical, architectural, and cultural icon for the neighborhood, the city, and the region.”
At Brooklyn Arts Center they specialize in producing concerts, weddings, receptions and more. I have personally seen a few artists perform there and truly enjoyed my experience. It’s a fun venue and I loved the set up and feel of the place. The acoustics dance from the rafters literally. If you are interested in Brooklyn Arts Center’s exciting winter line-up CLICK HERE.
