Brooklyn Flea booty
Today's Brooklyn Flea was my first- I can't believe it's taken me so long to check it out! It has a terrific mix of vendors selling everything from vintage clothes, antique jewelry, local food (mmm, pickles!), artwork, and handcrafted furniture from salvaged bits and pieces. I didn't intend to buy ANYTHING, but now that I've set myself free from the chains for Style without Consumption, I couldn't resist as lovely periwinkle ruffley print blouse by Banana Republic and a NARCISO RODRIGUEZ cream wool high waisted skirt for $15 total! I also picked up a pair of J. Lindberg skinny boy-cut jeans and a purple flowery muumuu (with pockets) for $20 at an unattended booth that was carrying out a social experiment- a few racks of thrifted vintage and a bottle for you to pay what you thought was appropriate, though the suggested price was $18. I also couldn't resist a small jar of spicy relish from McClure's Pickles- yum!
