Brooklyn Flea Market - Dan's Parent's House

Ok so here is the first of my New York treat spots....

On every Saturday and Sunday the Brooklyn Flea Market is on, Sundays it is at Williamsburg in the East river waterfront on the Sunday with a spectacular views of Manhattan. What a great place for a market....

Grab a People's pop or a delicious snack from Milk Truck and wander around this visual feast.

There are some great Vintage sellers, handmade craft and design, amazing food vendors and just general bits and bobs, which leads me to the main vendor I wanted to tell you about as it just stuck to me and I wanted to rifle through everything he had....

Dan's Parent's House  - An eclectic visual array of all sorts of things from bingo cards, tin letters, old star wars toys, letterpress blocks, dice, wooden things, papers, postcards, toys and collectibles. A proper rummage through is essential. I t must take him hours to set up such a stall, it was like a shop.... amazing. Just so many things to look at, I was like a kid in a sweet shop [ like I was a lot of the time in NY!]

I bought vintage Bingo cards, tiny glass bottles, and got a free popcorn bag... I wanted to buy so much more.....

Other things I bought from the flea were an amazing strawberry print tablecloth, vintage postcard of the Empire State building and a vintage dressmaking book. SUCH GOOD TREATS.

A must see in Williamsburg!

Hope you enjoy having a look, next time I will have to take a bigger case so I can buy those huge tine letters!!
