I Saved the Best for Last

In my last picture heavy post, I omitted one of the places we visited while in Brooklyn. We went to the new indoor location of the Brooklyn Flea. As usual, it was overwhelming and I saw so many interesting things.


I love all the wooden letters.

And the metal ones.

The keys were intriguing, but pricey.

This booth was awesome, but again, I didn't purchase anything.

Then, as we were leaving, I saw this:

A gorgeous Dale of Norway cardigan in beautiful condition. I took a couple of photos, then asked the man how much it would cost, and when he said $45, I couldn't get my cash to him fast enough.

I wore this beauty the rest of the trip and I swear, I almost didn't need my coat anymore! When I priced similar sweaters on the Internet, they were priced between $350 to $450!! I'll show you the details next time, but meanwhile, just know I'm in love with this sweater. What a fabulous birthday gift to myself!



  1. Major score on the sweater. Nice job.

    I, too, would have poked around plenty in the MCM kitcheny booth. Loved those animal glasses, but I would have left them there. It's like you want to have another whole house to redecorate with all the cool stuff you find.

    1. Exactly! My husband complains about all the vintage bowls we have and he's right, we do have too many. I was just going through some bookshelves and trying to pare it down a bit, but no luck. I have been lots better about getting rid of fiction I read, but knitting and craft books are my kryptonite.

  2. What an amazing place to visit, love the sweater.

  3. Beautiful sweater. Love the Scandinavian colors.
