Flea Market Floozy
Every Sunday the boyfriend and I head over to the local flea market for a few hours to see what we can find. I pretty much always come home with something, although the degree of awesome-ness varies from time to time.
It's been disgustingly hot and humid here lately, so we took a break from going for a couple of weeks. This Sunday was our first day back.
This is what I came home with:
A vintage luggage set in pristine never used condition. No, it's not Samsonite =( It's a knock off brand that's a bit lighter in weight. I love it though and it's bright color, it will be perfect for our trip to Florida in October.
I also got 3 shot glasses from the same seller. I just had to have the glasses for their kitsch factor seeing as 2 of them are covered with stereotypical images of "natives". They match a set of frosted Federal tumblers I stole from my Grandmother. I wish the seller had the full set. Th third glass has screeching black cats on it, so that was another must due to my love of all things spooky.
A close up of the glasses:
I also remembered to have Derek take a picture of my outfit that day:
This is another example of how I don't wear vintage on a daily basis,lol.
Tank top: Mandees
Glasses: Betsey Johnson
Sneakers: KISS by Vans
Necklace: The Sex Pistols Shop, UK. It's actually a copy of the gun necklace that Sid's GF Nancy Spungen used to wear all the time.
In totally un-related news.....we have been working with a new real estate agent for a few weeks. So far she's worlds better then the old agent we had. We are going to look at a few houses today, so I will keep you all posted.
