Brooklyn Flea Market

Brooklyn Flea Market from Monroe Steele on Vimeo.

So I along with a few members of the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group went to the Brooklyn Flea market Sunday. It was my first time going and it was pretty freaking awesome. I am a thrift maniac so being surrounded by so much vintage and second hand items gave me an instant headache. Well maybe the hot son beaming down on me and my dehydrated body was what actually gave me the headache but that neither here or there. The weather was perfect once the sun toned itself down behind a cloud and the breeze off the east river floated salted air around the flea.

I took home some great buys. A ring, necklace, belts and two purses! I’m actually surprised I didn’t buy any clothes. Probably because I was too busy buying food. The vendors were AMAZING. I had two of these and even corn (which I had to wipe off my lipstick to eat) lol.

My Buys
 Vintage Horse Closure Belt $10 Fashion STEELE!
 This belt was definitely one of my favorite buys…I’ve already rocked it since.
I think it was a STEELE at $25
 Skull Ring…the cool thing about this ring is the head spins and comes off with a little compartment inside!

 Got this amazing necklace for $20 which was a STEELE! But I can’t say the same for the vintage bag. I dropped some serious dough on this but I just had to have it.
Lastly I got this cute little vintage bag for $10 fashion STEELE!
The fashion scene at the Brooklyn Flea was lovely to people watch.

Overall I had an awesometastic time at the Brooklyn Flea…sure I’m broke now but good thing I get paid again on Friday!

What do you think of my purchases????
