hell's kitchen flea market


thrifted chambray shirt and boots. urban outfitters beaded shorts. forever 21 gold bracelet. vintage bell bracelet, glasses and bow-tie. 

Isn't that white bench beautiful!? Oh my goodness if I had the funds to purchase that, it would be mine in a heartbeat! I had the chance to go to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market today with a friend and it was quite the treasure hunt! There were so many great items that any vintage/thrifter lover and blogger would swoon over! I know I sure wanted to buy multiple things but I'm a broke college student. However, I was able to purchase a vintage necklace and haggle it down to $30 from $70! Ok $30 is still expensive but I did my best for a first-time bargainer! You guys will see it eventually! This flea market is a must stop by if you're ever in NYC! It's open every weekend!

Looks like a pretty good flea market! I'd love to have a poke around.
I think you did well with the bargaining. That's less than half price of what was originally offered! Nice!

La Professionnelle said...

omg you were the first boy to comment on my blag! <3 u!!

Anyway, you have such an unconventional NY look--more LA, which is great for an aspiring stylist in NY (vs. LA). Plus you somehow make NY look as thrift-fun as Paris. great looks!!
