BK Flea Top Five 7/18/09

The sky was blue, the shine was shinning and the BK Flea Vendors were out in full force. My adventures at the flea started off a different today, instead of the typical pupusas that my friend and I usually get, we opted for a tasty grilled cheese with pickles, for $5. Yum, yum! If you ever find your self at the flea, you must try. After we ate we started out on our journey through the flea. The assortment was much better this week compared to last. I came across many new vendors, as well as a few favorites. Its always hard to narrow down my selection to only five, but I think it makes that five that are chosen, more special. Below are my picks for the week.


BK Flea Top 5!

Lovely Fabric Covered Notebooks
I had a very nice chat with Astra, who designs and makes the above notebook covers. She described her inspiration as always having a love for fabric notebooks, but hated that fact that you could only use them once. These covers can easily slip off and be added to a new notebook and also include both front and back pockets. Whats not to love?!

Vintage Powder Blue Highchair
I (heart) this highchair. The perfect alternative to the modern plastic version.

Vintage Hand Stitched Custom Cowboy Boots
I love the butterfly detail on this lovely boots, custom made size US 4.

Vintage Beaded Slip Dress
Seriously if I had some extra money to spare, this dress would be on display in my closet, no questions asked. Sigh.....

Handmade Feather Hat
Absolutely love this!!! Again, if I could just some how get my hands on an unlimited cash supply, this too would be mine. I know its rather strange looking, but I love it. Its one of those things you have to try on to appreciate. Not everyone could pull it off, but for those who can... this hat is fierce! I plan to attempt to make one myself in the coming weekends. I will keep you posted.

Until next time...
