A couple weekends ago, Justin and I hit up the flea market on the Upper West Side.
I love a good flea and this was a great one.
We found many a treasure.
glass bottles + old, very loved toy cars + assorted knobs
Books of old postcards which reminded me I want to bring the postcard back...
such a sweet + simple way to say hello i love you i miss you.
T-shirt ties... my 8-year-old self just died a little.
This would have been heaven to me circa 1991.
So many books that made my heart sing.
Letterpress cards, I will be back to buy more of you.
I think I could even sweet talk the letterpresser himself into letting me take a few pics of his process.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Strong competition for the books? The baubles.
Like those old postcards, I bet these beauties have stories to tell.
Hi! Want to come home with me?
Then there was this dude, quite the character.
He is passionate about scavenging for glass bottles.
Baubled, chic chandys. Ooh la la.
I think this pretty bowl wanted to come home with us too.
I could just see it catching the mail and keys and ipods.
When I bring back the postcard, I think I will also bring back the hanky.
I suppose that's the old soul in me talking.
Next time, we'll stop by Trop Pops as we stroll along.
And I might just sport a t-shirt tie while I'm at it.
