I spent a lovely Saturday perusing the Brooklyn Flea--if you live in NYC and haven’t been yet, you should try and get out to Fort Greene some summer Saturday because it’s so.much.fun. They have a really funky mix of goods, from vintage designer dresses and shoes to antique pieces for your home. Joe got an excellent vintage engraving of different exotic animals, complete with German names. One of the BEST parts about the Brooklyn Flea, though, is the FOOD. Oh man. I was thinking it would be a bunch of street food (you know, delicious but greasy), but I was pleasantly surprised. I got an Asian-inspired hot dog with Thai mango relish, cucumbers, peppers, etc. from AsiaDog, a raspberry ice pop from People’s Pops, and then split a Connecticut-style lobster roll (it’s served warm, with butter instead of mayo..mmm) from Red Hook Lobster Pound and a cannoli from Salvatore BKLYN with Joe. I could have eaten more. I already can’t wait to visit again soon!
And a bonus pic of me with my birthday bag! I’m in love with it. Seriously. It’s the perfect size and I love that I can change the shape.
How were your weekends?
