Flea Market: Hells Kitchen

Superior OOTD Boxed water is better Card Catalog Ornate Mirror

This past Sunday I stopped by the Hells Kitchen Flea Market during a little Sunday Funday in the city. Unfortunately, due to what I’m assuming is the seasonal lull, there was much left to be desired. It’s just too cold for most vendors to be out there so it’s probably best to check it out during the summer. There’s a bunch more pics I’ve got in store from the day but more on that later. In the meantime, there are always interesting things to take pictures of at a flea market. I think it’s often the coolest backdrop being surrounded by the quirky, random, and antique.

Destination Flea: Aloha Stadium Swap Meet

A must-have when traveling is to hit up the local flea market of whatever city/town I’m in. Imagine my delight when I learned of the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet. It turned out to be more of a tourist haven for souvenirs than an indie or vintage hotspot, but it was fun regardless. Not to mention, I found some gems for quite the bargain. Floral everything, fresh coconut juice, and watching tikis being carved were the highlights of this flea market trip.

P.S. Snuck in a couple of shots from the luau we went to. Just because.

One of the few signage at the swap meet was on this garbage can. It was quite charming. I like the font.

The Meadowlands Flea Market

It was a scorching 88 degrees in Jersey on Saturday and despite the heat I had a sudden hankering to go to a flea market. I’m on this mission to find vintage necklaces that I can take apart to make a whole “new” piece (more on that later). While I didn’t find any necklaces for my project, I did snag a vintage ring for $1.00 and got to see a few cool things that took me back. Waaaay back.

Caviar Noir Trunk Show Pics

Forgive me for the lazy blog, I’m trying to fight off the impending doom of seasonal sickness. Here are some pics from the Caviar Noir Trunk Show last Friday. More pictures definitely should have been taken and now that I look at them, I really need to start bringing my real camera with me and/or switch to the iPhone 5! Oh and if you didn’t make it to the trunk show, you can always shop Caviar Noir’s line at Sewbie.com : )
