1st stop - Brooklyn


This past weekend was the kick-off to the seasonal re-opening of the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. What a day! Still a little bit nippy outside, yes, we still had to wear our winter coats but spirits were high and neighbors were out to meet, greet, and purchase some cool handmade items. Welcome Spring!
An old-fashioned typewriter, anyone? A layout of beautiful jewels. Perhaps, a few pieces of clothing to change around a wardrobe? The Flea was certainly jam-packed with possibilities.
Turning the corner, I was surprised to find this little gal setting up shop for her fortune telling business. No, I didn't have my fortune told. Wish I did! I think I'll have to pay her a visit the next time.
What was the type of history attached to these dolls? Who held them? What were their names? What will their chosen names be for the next owner? 
With the warm weather coming I know a lot of us gals are thinking about dusting off our bicycles. This talented artist, Eleanor's NYC, makes really cool baskets and other stylish accessories to add to a great set of wheels.
More history in the form of old photos. Would have loved to sit for hours and rummaged through these moments in time.
Just as I was about to exit I noticed these beautiful dresses. Not exactly my style, but what a mix of colors! 
Well, that's it for the first official SpRiNg outing. It was a great day at the Brooklyn Flea. NYC is just revving up it's schedule for some new adventures. We are slowly shedding our layers and going sockless. Woohoo! Lot's of things still to report. Hope you are enjoying your first layers of spring!


  1. This is so neat. When I finally visit NYC someday I am going to go here :)

  2. I'm sure you will love it! :))
