The Brooklyn Flea

A few weeks ago, I finally headed to the Brooklyn Flea ......it had been on my "to do" list for ages so glad to scratch this off the list....this was my view from the bus heading to Brooklyn  
It was a very hot day when we arrived......in the morning......I must also say if you go in the summer, wear closed shoes as those are all pebbles on that floor and I had many getting in my sandals while walking.... 
look at these vintage cameras!! how cool !! this is one of the best flea's and started around 2008..... 
loved this for the dapper guys out there!! their website says they have about 125+ vendors but I thought it was smaller than what I was expecting.....this was the Sunday flea as they also have one on Saturday  
I loved this neat hanging lamp ....the colors were great and the design very interesting......You can purchase some really unique items here, no doubt !!  
just about anything you can think of vintage would be here as well as handmade jewelry and food items  
okay, these doughnuts were amazing! I can't even begin to explain but they were so light and fluffy...like eating nothing but air .....the food will be it's own separate post......... 
this reminded me of my mom's jewelry box...I hated the fact they were mostly clip and those clip earrings are quite the painful but oh so pretty !!  
this painting was really neat.....didn't ask the price but would love to hang in my home  
How cute is this guy?? Overall I enjoyed the experience, would like to go back when not as hot or in the winter when it is indoors so I can take the time to look more slowly. 
With views like this, we were not complaining too much.....it was nice to sit and relax and just enjoy a Sunday in Brooklyn, New York.

Have you ever had Fresh Made doughnuts? They were amazing...I felt a bit guilty eating them as my friend is a healthy eater but I had to. Wait till you see the rest of the food! Amazing stuff people are creating out there...just amazing !!
