BK Flea Top Five 4/18/09

19 Apr

Yesterday was the Opening day of The Brooklyn Flea’s 2nd Season in Fort Green, Brooklyn. I have been waiting for this day since last December when they packed up for the winter and headed to Dumbo. As luck would have it the weather was absolutely amazing yesterday, the perfect weather for enjoying an outdoor flea market. I went with a good friend from work, who also lives in the neighborhood, and enjoyed a live marching band, California worthy Mexican food, all natural ice cream, lovely necklaces, fabulous furniture, TONS of sun and “old things” galore!

I took a few pics of a very small number of the things I loved and have since decided to bring you a list of my top 5 favorite things every week. This weeks list isn’t the greatest, as I decided to do this new weekly feature after the fact but rest assures these are 5 great things and there will be many more to come from now till December 🙂

First off, just to give you a little background info… I use the word LOVE a lot. Especially when it comes to places or things. I love flea markets. I love magazines. I love fashion. I love style. I love retro kitchen items. I love leopard print. I love old dresses from the 40’s to early 60’s and the late 70’s as well. I love purple and recently started to love green (really I love all colors on some level, it just depends on how you mix and match them as well as what day you ask me) The list could go on forever, but I think you get the idea.

Now if you were paying attention I shouldn’t even have to tell you how I got a little weak in the knees when coming across this booth at the Brooklyn Flea yesterday. Picture it: Vintage Vogue Magazines $20 each, vintage prints including pin ups, fashion, NYC and more…. Vintage eye glass frames, jewelry and more stuff’ than I can remember. *swoon*

I didn’t buy anything yesterday, although I’m kicking myself for not picking up the “New Ways to Wear Color” (featured above) Vintage Vogue issue! Seriously I cried a few tears last night. But rest assured… the lovely lady behind these gorgeous finds will be back every Saturday and you better believe I will be too!
