Vanderbilt Ave.

Yesterday it was raining off & on throughout the afternoon, which seemed to scare off most of the vendors at the BK flea, but how does the saying go… “when life hands your lemons, make lemonade” =) So my friend and packed our umbrellas and headed out for to play . Our first stop was still the flea, although with not many vendors I wasn’t able to do my top 5 picks, but we did enjoy some fabulous Mexican food from one of the (correction) THE only food vendor there that day. After that we ventured down Lafayette Ave. making a stop at Bespoke Bicycle Shop, where I picked up a lovely white metal basket for my bicycle as well as a pair of cork grips and a free NYC Bicycle map. Then it was off to the hardware store for coffee mug hooks for under my kitchen cabinets… mojito’s (plural) at Habana and our last stop at The Green Grape. Rain or shine…it was just another fabulous day in Brooklyn.
