Weekend Recap: Brooklyn Flea

Hi All,


So sorry for the late post today. I had an early meeting with my seamstress at a clients home and just got back a couple of minutes ago. I’m already in love with the chair she is slip covering and I can’t wait to share! This client project was a quick one. We only had 3 weeks to get everything done. Fingers crossed everything arrives, because it needs to be finished by Friday!


Back to the weekend though.  Here in NY we had one super sunny and amazing day (Saturday) and then another full of gray clouds and rain, rain and more rain (Sunday).


In order to enjoy every bit of the sun I headed to Brooklyn Flea!


One of my first stops at Brooklyn Flea is always City Owl Vintage. 


I fell in love with those hanging globes! Jon spotted them first and new I would be begging to take them home. The $325 price tag for each one slowly bought me back to planet earth!

Of course before I continued getting my interior design fix I needed to get my food fix. I made it over right away to Lindsay's cousins booth:

Salvatore Bklyn to get my favorite sandwich!


It was featured in Martha's magazine.


I am a totally chicken and because they were super busy I just paid for my sandwich and ran. Even though I was all talk in the car about how I was going to introduce myself to Linds cousin. Ah next time I’ll get the nerve. She was even the one that helped me and I stayed quiet as a mouse!


Of course I needed more food so when my sister Daniela arrived we headed for some Mexican food !

Check out the crazy lines at all the food booths. It was instantly. I would have eaten much more if I didn’t have to wait on those lines.

There was vintage furniture as far as the  eye could see!

This booth was filled with industrial stools:

Plus industrial medical carts:

I swear I spotted this chair at one of my local haunts for $20. The sides are made of metal and form a Z. I wanted to grab then when I saw them, but I didn’t have a use for them at the moment so they stayed put. I guess a vendor must go to the same haunt as me.

Feel in love with those Bamboo chairs, but one had a small hole in the cane seat so I walked away. They were going for $75 for the pair. Kinda mad that I didn’t pick them up, but what can I do.

These letters were a huge hit. You kept bumping into people walking around with them.

More vintage finds. I loved these old milk bottles.

Old cabinets being used as planters.

A lovely set of eight chairs!

Tons of tables filled with vintage glassware.

This booth had pretty stuff, but again way too expensive. That ottoman was $400 bucks!

I did love the rick-racking they used on their tents plus that bed full of toss pillows!

While I find the flea to be a bit pricey. Everything is “vintage” which just equates to expensive. It is fun to walk around and check everything out. Plus there are tons of baked goods booth so you can satisfy your sweet tooth as you shop.


Sunday was spent indoors working on a Photoshop class I’m taking and I’m not going to lie a nap or two was taken.


What did you guys do? I can’t believe I didn’t work on any home projects, but sometimes it’s nice to take a little break!

Such a cool flea markey - that ottoman was so cool, but way over priced. I also like the Z chairs you spotted, nice

I was at the Flea the weekend it opened - lots of fun stuff! I've been meaning to put up a post of pics but haven't had time. I had the pizza with Salvatore Brooklyn ricotta on it and it was to die for! No purchases for me either!

Oh my goodness! Please take me with you next time. I die over those cane chairs as well as some vintage milk glasses. I went to Chelsea Flea with Eddie Ross, but I think you might have had better luck.

Ohhh! It has moved outside again! I went in the winter when it was in that bank, which was cool...Mostly because that bank building is so beautiful, but I bet it is SO much better outside!
