This weekend I finally got to the Brooklyn Flea and I was smitten. It was so quirky and strange I just loved it. There were baubles and trinkets (shrinkets as my sister calls them) galore; tiny tins filled with bizarre antiques were at every stand. It was a lovely New York outing!
This weekend I also saw my cousin who was visiting from Michigan. She was staying at a friend's apartment in Crown Heights so my weekend started with a trip to Brooklyn. Though Crown Heights is a bit strange there was a wonderful pizza place and really beautiful old apartments. Seeing that part of Brooklyn (where I could afford to live) and Williamsburg (where I could never afford to live) definitely made me want to make the big move overseas (or across the Brooklyn Bridge).
I cant wait to furnish my apartment with the decently priced but oh so cool things! Each one has a story and you can really see it in each blemish. (Poetic and nostalgic, eh?).
