Vintage finds: The Williamsburg Flea!

IMG_8914It was a beautiful day in Brooklyn and I finally had a sunday off to do whatever I wanted so I dragged my boyfriend out of bed to finally visit the Williamsburg flea. I have heard many great things about the Brooklyn Flea’s and cannot believe I haven’t been to one till now. Better late than never because It was absolutely perfect and such a great way to recharge my soul because NY really doesn’t have the best vintage shops. In my opinion most vintage shops here are way too expensive and don’t really carry the great styles I see elsewhere. I can’t blame them, the rent here is so expensive, they have no choice but to price their vintage at higher price points. Anyway, If you can imagine, I was in pure heaven at the WillyB Flea, the prices were just right and the vintage and antiques were great. I met some great vintage dealers and purchased some really cool things. I am already itching to go back! I get lots of messages from many of you asking about my favorite vintage stores in NYC, my response from now on will be “Just go to the Brooklyn Flea’s”. Now I just have to check out the Fort Greene and Long Island flea to see what great vintage I will find. I plan to make trips to the flea markets at least once or twice a month because my soul loves it and needs it! Check out all of the interesting things I saw and purchased at the WillyB flea inside!IMG_8961 I’m ready!IMG_8913The first vendor we visited had a bunch of cool post cards, pictures, books, and vintage specs! I purchased a few post cards and some of his vintage eyewear.IMG_8917My boyfriend picked up this awesome vintage post card set and I tried to steal it from him!

I fell in love with the 70’s but retro design of these and had to have them. I also really liked the vendors of this booth. Bruce & Elizabeth were so sweet and I can’t wait to visit them again for some more specs.IMG_8954 At another booth I found this really cool vintage bamboo knit purse. I am so in love with it!IMG_8957 On the way out of the Brooklyn Flea, I stumbled across my greatest vintage find of the day-this “Esquire Cleaners” Bowling shirt!
