Currently Coveting -Vintage Typewriter

14 Jun

Lately I have been seeing vintage typewriters everywhere. Maybe that’s because I spend my weekends at Flea Markets, who knows. What I do know is that I have always loved a beautiful typewriter, especially in a lovely candy coated shade of pink, blue, green or yellow. Funny enough, I can still remember actually using a typewriter to type up papers for school. I’m not quite sure if I did this because I had to or because I just liked using the typewriter but ever since the one that we had broke, I have always wanted another. I can just imagine a stormy spring evening sitting at my window, typing chapter’s from my autobiography while listening to the sounds of the rain and Ella Fitzgerald playing on the record player (which I also need to get) and sipping a chilled glass of Riesling. Aw, what a life…

One day I will find a typewriter that fits my style perfectly until then I guess I’m just stuck with this less attractive HP laptop, which although not nearly as cool, it does serve its purpose. You can’t exactly blog with a typewriter.

Vintage Vogue @ The Flea

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!
