We were able to drop by the new Harlem Treasure Chest Flea Market this past weekend and was surprised in the fact that it took this long for someone to come up with an outdoor market in Harlem. Located at a cleaned up lot on the corner of 117th and FDB/8th Avenue, the Harlem Treasure Chest has mix of antique dealers selling their wares in the open air. Besides the usual rack of cloths, random item such as marble cafe table tops were also seen this past weekend. It's not the largest space for a flea market, but this new South Harlem addition is worth checking out for those interested in vintage shopping.
