And who doesn’t need a go-to little Steve Buscemi dress? Available from Black Milk for $100.
Last weekend I was on my way home when I couldn’t help but stop and stare at these beautiful men’s shoes. Unfortunately being 5’3″, I’ve learned that coveting thy other gender’s clothing/accessories usually only leads to heartbreak.

While in San Francisco last week, I couldn’t help but take some time out to go antique shopping in the Mission District. What could be better than pizza from Delfina’s followed by mid-century home furnishings? Oh yeah, following it up with a burrito from El Farolito. Mmm, I miss San Francisco already…
Sometimes I get overzealous with my camera and photograph things that I completely forget about. Here are photographs that I took (all but the last one, obviously) while at the Brimfield Antique Fair in September.
After being back in New York for almost an entire month, I finally made it out to the Brooklyn Flea Market. While sipping fresh pineapple juice, I spent Saturday afternoon looking for some small storage solutions for my new apartment.
At the end of the day I headed home with:
1 box/ottomon/end table (I have yet to figure out how I am going to use it)
1 old crate (this will be great for storing things I don’t want seen)
1 amazingly perfect Dahlia from FlowerSchool
I can’t wait until next weekend when I can go scavenge some more…
This Saturday, I went to one of my favorite places – the Brooklyn Flea market. This is the first time I’ve been since it moved indoors for the winter. Although I miss perusing the vendors outdoors, the atrium of the old Williamsburg Savings bank is beautiful, and indoor heating is a definite plus this time of year.
I love old cameras. I only know how to use a digital, but I have fantasies about being able to use one of these and taking photos that look like the beginning of the Wonder Years. I also think I had that phone growing up during the pre ‘boxey cordless phone with answering machine’ days.
This is one of my more interesting finds. I’m not sure if they were for exercise or short men.
In spite of all of the amazing treasures like these, my favorite part of the Brooklyn Flea is the food. Unfortunately, I was too busy stuffing myself with spinach papusas to remember to take a photo, but you can click here if you want a little something to whet your appetite.
