Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market nyc

 

 

On 39th street off 9th avenue………..a weird and rather ugly spot for a Flea Market……..a bunch of very weird vendors and their booths.  LOOKING FOR A BARGAIN…..not here.  Lots of over-priced junk.  Too many fake African masks……..

Antique………vintage…………..wierd……..junk and garbage.  Tired barbies…….beheaded dolls……..and the vendors DO NOT HAGGLE.  This flea market is just no fun.  Spend your time in New York anywhere but here.

The Early Morning SUNRISE………..in my apartment

Every morning I arise just as the sun is doing the same.  The apartment GLOWS.……I sit there with a cup of tea and the New York Times………..and bask in the glow.

I  fell in love with the “pincushion” flower when I visited my dear friend Simmie in Pretoria.  Now I have them year round in my living room.

These little guys are from the POTTERY BARN…………not a gallery in Chelsea.

40 FACES that looked me in the face!

Well………maybe I looked them in the face.  I snapped about 100 this week but chose these for my blog.  More will follow.

Most of these were shot at the 25th street GARAGE flea market.  Others here and there on the streets of New York.

FLITTING ABOUT AT THE FLEA

My week-end guests……… three lovely ladies from……… Detroit stuffed their suitcases with  “treasures and trash” from the GARAGE FLEA MARKET on West 25th street early on Saturday morning.  We had fun!  Vintage clothes, jewelry, art and assorted chotchkies…..and one African tribal mask.

THE LORD OF THE FLEAS………Les Puces

Un Chapeau…with chicken feathers.

The Flea Markets of Paris are fabulous.  But “La Garage” on West 25th street can be just as much fun.  The dealers get there at the crack of dawn…….don’t bother.  There are plenty of “treasures” to go around.

Wanted to take her home………..Donald said “NOT” !

I thought she would look great as a dinner guest out on the terrace.
