check it, flea

one of my favorite things in this city is the brooklyn flea market. on saturday i took my huck and my mom to see the flea (indoors this time, it's winter dudes), and then immediately afterwards we went to the hell's kitchen flea market. it was a lot of fleas.

::brooklyn::

the first time i have ever, ever found glasses small enough for my face.
the woman wanted $40 for that sweater. doesn't that seem a little preposterous?
but actually, i did buy that for huck
my mom bought this. (and i helped her eat it)

::hell's kitchen::


basically i could have my way with any single item in this display (i tried to haggle the peach coffee table down to $25. the dude pretty much laughed in my face.)
this nice gentleman was buying an antique record player.
this guy . . . well, who knows.

and then i almost but didn't buy this sweater!


c'est la vie.

  1. Look at the hucklebaby pudge. Delicious!!

    Love Brooklyn Flea. Did you get an Asia Dog? I have dreams about their spicy ketchup/potato chips dog. SO GOOD. I got my headboard (it's an indonesian wood carving thingy that I decided works as a headboards), two necklaces, and two pieces of art at Brooklyn Flea.

  5. oh, I love flea markets! Imaginary shopping is sometimes the best, mostly because you can imagine all those things and how fun they'd be to own but then a few hours later you've forgotten them and moved on. plus browsing is always nice, I think.

  8. Ahhh a good flea market can do wonders for your soul. So I've heard. I've never actually been. But I have to tell you I had the funniest dream last night and you were in it. Not to creep you out or anything (I know, a lot of people say that to you). It was funny. You'd have to come over for hot chocolate and ice cream so that I could tell you about it, let me know when you're headed over :)

  10. I love those glasses on you. And would you believe that I've only been to the hell's kitchen flea market once? I live two blocks away! I need to fix that ASAP.

  16. 1. That rooster bag is ADORABLE!
    2. Those glasses look sooooo cute on you :)
    3. What a sweet toy Huck scored!

    I wish we had awesome flea markets like these a bit closer. The ones that are close to me are super tiny and not so magical.

  18. I LOVE old printing press letters! They make adorable wall art when you glue them together and make fun words.

  19. I love flea markets and I haven't been to one in years! I love second hand stuff...people get rid of so much good stuff.

  20. Aww I was in Brooklyn visiting my sister and we strolled to the flea too! If only I would have seen you there. Would have made my trip.

  21. Oh I LOVE the NYC flea markets. I went to the hell's kitchen one last April and found myself the COOLEST bug pendant and big baubly ring. I definitely plan on heading back soon!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. WOW! So much fabulous old stuff! I love the printing press letters! I wish our flea market sold those ...

  23. I'm absolutely SALIVATING over those cases of old metal type!!! The English major in me would have spent her life savings on a case or two. As would the designer. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those glasses? ALMOST AS ADORABLE AS HUCK.

  25. I could totally drive 15 minutes and get you one of those Longhorn sweatshirts. It may still cost $40 because licensed stuff is ridiculous, but at least it won't smell like mothballs. I'm guessing by the weird seams that the one in the pic is kinda old. Yes no?

  26. Oh my. I am envious of the flea marketing available in your local area. I must find one in
    Sydney soon.

  27. TREASURE HUNTING!!! I SO LOVE FLEA MARKETS!!

    1. Those glass bottles, I want to hug them and squeeze them and call them George.
    2. Seriously? The dead animals?
    3. Oooh, all the wooden boxes!
    4. The glasses = adorable on you. :-)
    5. Did you know you're in the peach table pic?
    6. Oh I wish that nice gentlemen would buy an antique record player for me. I have nothing on which to play my one and only record, and that makes me very sad.
    7. Yeah, dude shaking hands with (?) is a bit freaky, but the (?) is even freakier to me.
    8. But you NEED that purple mirror so you can avoid the bank of elevators!

  28. oh i am laughing at these captions....i'd probably spend every dollar i've ever saved at this place. and hey - texas fans will pay a lot for crap like that. i'm from oklahoma and trust me....i've experienced my fair share of longhorns.
