I have two days left in Brooklyn before I have to pack up and head back to school in Southern California. At this point, I'm basically crying myself to sleep every night- I'm going to miss the city so much.
My best find of the summer has definitely been Artists and Fleas. Saturday and Sunday, artists bring their jewelry, clothes and accessories to an warehouse on 6th Street between Bedford Ave and Berry.
I went on Saturday for my last time and bought the best thing yet. I bought an electric blue, jaguar printed jumpsuit from the Hot Trash Vintage booth. It is incredible- photos to come.
If you are in New York now, or on your next trip you really should go. http://artistsandfleas.com/
Below, a picture of a Turkish metal belt from the 40's. I wanted it to be mine, but alas I had already spent my paycheck on Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
