My typical Saturday morning and early afternoon usually looks like this (abridged):
Wake up. Make coffee. Make breakfast. Read. Get dressed. Drop off laundry. Go to Brooklyn Flea. Browse all vendors. Head to BK Flea food court. Eat 2 pulled pork sliders from Asia Dog. Eat 1 chocolate with cocoa nibs donut from Dough. Browse (ok, buy) books at BookCourt or Greenlight Books. Get a Stumptown cappuccino from Cafe Peddler. Pick up laundry, now washed and folded for me, on the way home.
Have I mentioned that I absolutely adore living in Brooklyn?
I don’t always get to do this routine (traveling is the main thing that interferes), but it is my very favorite way to spend my Saturdays. Saturday nights are always different, but the day is a perfect routine of my favorite places and things to do.
I usually buy 1 vintage thing at the Flea each week. This week it was a small blue vintage pyrex casserole dish that I found for $10:
It looks perfect for stashing leftovers in the fridge, doesn’t it?
As far as the food at the Flea goes, this is a Dough donut:
It tastes like heaven would taste, if heaven were a donut.
And that’s what Saturday afternoons are like. I figure I’ll start posting photos of vintage things I buy (sometimes from the Flea, sometimes from Etsy) because finding something old that still has use and value is so much fun, and I love giving things a new appreciative home.
