Film giant Spike Lee recently gave fans the opportunity to don his favorite accessory by opening a one-day-only pop-up vintage shop in Brooklyn. Just this past Saturday (October 8), "Spike's Joint" featured tons of old school film memorabilia and gear, including hats from his 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks collection.

"I like hats, got that from my father— jazz bassist and composer Mr. Bill Lee," Lee told HuffPost BlackVoices. Lee is rarely seen without a hat and says the statements they make, "Depends on da man. Depends on da hat."

Lee was on hand to chat with the guests, who were let into a huge pitched tent just ten at a time. "This is the best Saturday. This is a community thing," resident Bruce White told the NY Daily News. Each customer left with a Michael Jackson CD and sticker.
