Brooklyn Flea Market

I spent an unusually chilly Sunday (complete with gale force winds) at an indoor Flea Market in Brooklyn's One Hanson Building, which used to be a bank at one time.  It was a beautiful setting for vintage finds, and a nice time with my best friend.  Check it out if you're in the area!

Looks a little dangerous to the old pocketbook (at least for me anyways). I love useless old junk (it's just so pretty!)

OH what fun! And such a neat building. Did you buy anything?? :--) xo Sandy

Diana, oh how like you I am!!!

Sandy, I came close, but ended up walking away. I might be back, though!

I love the pink typwriter & the clocks! Marie should have that pink typwriter!

sMacThoughts said...

yes, it was gorgeous, Beth! My friend bought a few of the clocks. They were spectacular with loud 'antique' sounding ticking.

How wonderfully nostalgic. I would have certainly enjoyed walking through just for the feeling of being there.

sMacThoughts said...

We have some of the best flea markets, Bill! And for me, yes, just to even go and look at everything is just as fun for me!

I wish we had flea markets like this in Seattle!

sMacThoughts said...

You don't Tara?? I'd think Seattle would have some awesome ones!

Oh how I love places like this! Ever been to the Brimfield shows? Over 2000 dealers lining 1 1/4 miles along Route 20 in Massachusetts. May, June and September, usually the second week each of those months.

sMacThoughts said...

OH no, Beverly, but I think I must try that out!!!!!

jim bradshaw said...

Oh man, those clocks!!! I wish I had been there. I need to add to my clock collection. Your photos of this event are great, Susan.

sMacThoughts said...

OH Jim, I wanted them all... and the sound of them all ticking.... I loved it!
