Good morning. How was your weekend? Good, I hope! I started my holiday shopping, pulled out and decorated our Christmas tree (pictures soon)… gosh, I forgot how much I love the holidays! The city is really pretty, it’s worth going outside even though it’s in 30 degrees… aw
I stopped by Kings County General Store (I’ll be showing this Sunday, Dec 12th!) and Brooklyn Flea yesterday and found lots of types besides other things. I lost few images on my iPhone (she’s been acting crazy lately) but here are some that survived and wanted to be shared!
Let’s do this week!!
We went to the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene on Saturday morning to pick up our new dining table (oh my god, we love it! Pictures coming soon) and also found lots of awesome stuff! I learned something: go there in the morning and grab it if you really want it! There were tons of great stuff, but while I was eyeing things and making the rounds, some of them were gone. and I was so sad about missing them… :(
Took some pictures, too, enjoy the flea!
Lots of Mason Jars:
Love these clocks — the colors are great.
Lots of frames:
This letter R was so special:
These little friends were so cute I wanted to take all of them home…
Cathrineholm milk pots and bowl:
How cute is this pattern?
Big Letter K:
I hope you all had a nice long weekend :)
I first saw Nice Package booth at last Saturday’s Brooklyn Flea and I thought it was the cutest package shop ever! I had to stop by and looked at all the cute little packaging materials and decorations, I wanted to buy every single thing just to have them.
They told me that their online store would open this week… and so I checked… yay, it is open! You can see what I’m talking about from their website as well as their online shop.
I bought this baker’s twine in red:
Cute cupcake toppers:
Garland shop front — it was so lovely:
Festive Garland (picture is from their shop):
Baker’s Twine + Mini Clothespins:
More great cute stuff here…
Speaking of packages… I have been printing letterpress gift bags for the holidays… here is a little sneak peek… you will see more very soon — stay tuned!! :)
Wishing you all a Happy Friday and a weekend… I’ll be in Boston and NH for our friend’s wedding activities! :)
Continue reporting from last Saturday’s Brooklyn Flea… it was the launch day for the Flea Design Co-op! It is curated by Lena Corwin, featuring top Brooklyn artists in design, painting and printing, ceramics, letterpress, and more — it was worth checking out!
The limited-edition poster designed by Wayne Pate:
One of the tables… MAPTOTE – Wayne Pate….
Wayne Pate posters and mini prints — the mini prints were letterpressed! I had to grab some… I love his work.
Lovely Moontree Letterpress:
Wren Handmade (so cute!):
There were more from Lotta Jansdotter, Marcie McGoldrick, Sesame Letterpress, and of course Lena Corwin, but I couldn’t take all the pictures, I was busy shopping around :) (and lots of people were there, too so.)
The design co-op is at Fort Greene every Saturday now on (through they close for the winter time) so if you have a chance, stop by! :)
