46th Ave and 5th St, Long Island City, Queens. Subway: E to Court Sq–23rd St; G to 21st St; 7 to Vernon Blvd–Jackson Ave. For three weekends before Christmas, more than 55 vendors set up shop in a warehouse space adjacent to LIC Flea & Food's outdoor lot at this gift-geared seasonal spin-off. Peruse handcrafted goods, art, and vintage clothing and furniture while swinging to jazzy holiday tunes from Dandy Wellington and His Band. Warming grub includes Butcher Bar's burnt-ends sandwiches ($11) and savory and sweet mini pies from Handpie ($4). If you need a break from shopping, toss a frame on the bowling lane. Kids can pose for snaps with Santa and you can pick up a tree or wreath.
