|Adorable pottery. Want.|
Millions of people + more belongings than they need + limited living and storage space = Flea Market!
(OK, you also have to throw in people with a good eye for collecting, people with talents who sell their art and crafts, etc….but you get my drift).
One very warm (read: too hot) Saturday at the end of May, as a friend and I were still trying to assemble, decorate, and uselessly fill our new apartments, we decided to go to the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene, where untold treasures awaited.
|I. love. these.|
|Useless tidbits for the win!|
|I don't know why anyone would need this little guy, but everyone should want it.|
I surprised myself with my restraint, buying nothing but a curiously flavored popsicle. But never fear; I will return.
|People's Pops. Raspberry Basil flavor, I think they were. |
This picture has some incredible color action happening.
Even when it’s not an official flea market, I always enjoy fun antique/thrift store finds of useless-yet-alluring junk, such as this store (incidentally called Junk, I believe) in Williamsburg.
|Some genius put the photo of the lake next to the vintage beer can.|
|President-face bottles, buttons, kazoos, alligator belt buckles|
|"Official Beer Pong Balls," eclectic busts, vintage beer cans|
