Flea Market Frenzy

One thing that always makes my weekends complete is a trip to the Antiques Garage and the outdoor Chelsea flea market, both located on 25th street within a two block proximity.This antique mile is any vintage enthusiast's dream! The mission of rooting through trash to score treasure is exhilarating, and all the unique pieces are truly inspiring to me as a designer. Nothing makes me happier than routinely waking up every Saturday or Sunday and heading off to the flea markets with high hopes of finding my next treasure, be it jewelry, clothing, or household knick knacks. Recently, my focus has been hoarding all the antique turquoise medicine bottles from the 1860's that I could get my hands on for the wedding! Now that I've completed that task, I'm free to aimlessly peruse for my own pleasure again and purchasing whatever catches my eye. Yesterday, my lucky find was a little 14k gold airplane charm with a spinning propeller, which makes the perfect addition to my travel inspired gold charm necklace. Very JetSet Coco!


  1. I wanna go! Although I have the attention span of a fly, so I prob wouldn't be able to put that much effort into seeking out bottles that you have done! :)

  2. Hahaha I know! I bought 50 bottles over several weekends of hoarding, and I eventually had to cut myself off! We definitely need to go thrifting next time we're together.. I'll have to check out those Miami flea markets ASAP :)
