This Sunday, to mark the final weekend of my east coast vacation, my Brooklyn bestie Sara and I hit up the Brooklyn Flea, which is currently taking up residence at the beautiful and historic One Hanson in Fort Greene. It was once a bank but now functions as a rentable event hall.
There were about as many taxidermied heads and antlers as there were mustaches at last month's SF Renegade Craft Fair.
Sara and I loved all these animal target prints, creepy though their undertones may be. This vendor had so many amazing prints; too bad I've pretty much wallpapered the apartment with prints as it is.
I bought a lovely necklace from Baubles and Thorn, by designer Elma Blint. Photo to come, but suffice to say it was very much along the lines of the rest of her pieces; simple and understated in an eye-catching way.
I also snagged a piece from Brooklyn-based Loyalty and Blood. I didn't see the one I bought on their website, so I'll have to photo that one too! There was another necklace that I wanted but didn't buy and am now pining for, though... and it WAS on the site.
I think I might have to go for it after the fact.
Between my two scores and Sara's 2 necklaces and amazing vintage coat, we made out like bandits. I especially loved her Jessica De Carlo necklace (excuse the sad, sad blurriness)...doesn't it remind you of the one For Me, For You's Kate's bf got her?
Brooklyn Flea was awesome, but I'm actually kind of glad to be heading across the country for awhile- that place could get dangerous! It's a good thing they didn't have the heat on in the giant, concrete-floored building, or we might never have left.
