Call it “the wee flea.”

Organizers of the popular Brooklyn Flea — the Sunday outdoor arts, crafts, antiques and vintage market in a Fort Greene high school backyard — will unveil a scaled down, up-market indoor version this weekend in DUMBO.

“It’s for Brooklyn Flea vendors who never wanted to bring their best stuff to an outdoor flea market,” said organizer Eric Demby (pictured, left, with Jon Butler).

On weekends through March, the DUMBO version will set up shop in vacant space at the corner of Washington and Front streets owned by neighborhood real-estate titan David Walentas, who has given a subsidized rent.

“He sees that having our market will bring more business to DUMBO,” Demby said.

Of course, if it doesn’t, this Flea could be short-lived. Demby admitted that none of the vendors have signed contracts for 12 weeks.

“I’m nervous, but I’m confident that the vendors will do well enough to come back,” he said.

Brooklyn Flea [76 Front St., at Washington Street in DUMBO, (718) 935-1052], weekends, 11 am–6 pm.
