Every time I am on a trip, I shall attempt to pinpoint at least one flea market to patronize. Chelsea boasts a wealth of vintage stores, and is also home to one of my favorite New York antique markets, to which the husband kindly accompanied me when we were on the East Coast. I appreciate that many flea markets on the East Coast are held in garages, unlike on the West Coast, whose markets are oft held outdoors. We uttered sighs of relief to hop from the train to the garage, as the skies poured and the winds howled that afternoon. The Mister and I both hunted for treasures, and scored a couple of vintage lovelies for our little home. It's a shame we can't consider adopting bulkier items while we're out-of-town, since they won't fit in our carry-ons. The husband, however, would deem that a blessing.

  9. I love those printing letters. And I love markets. But the trick for me is to find a good reason to buy something. And I never can so I always come away empty handed, but it's still fun to poke around.
