another thrift day in Brooklyn

it was a bright and sunny 75 degree Sunday.
It was the perfect day for a thrifting adventure in Williamsburg Brooklyn.
As soon as I hopped off the L train at Bedford I ran directly into a few sidewalk sellers and got the most amazing vintage paisely dress for $15. Damn..I love Brooklyn.
I spent 5 hours hitting vintage shops on 7th Street and walked down to the water for the Brooklyn Flea Market and ended my trip with a browse through Beacons Closet before returning to the city.
 Cross Roads has a really great sellection of dresses and shoes!
 If you want vintage Artists and Fleas is where you need to be. It is chalk full of vintage dresses. I spent about an hour in here alone trying on floral dresses and jumpers one after the other.
The prices arent very friendly though. Most vendors price everything about 15-25 dollars over what I'd pay but you can always negotiate.
the floral sweet heart vintage dress.... she didnt fit :-(
I ended up buying 2 pair of sunglasses and a vintage dress.
I really had to hold back because I saw so many awesome things. Check out my last two trips to the Brooklyn Flea Market videos HERE and HERE.
