 It's hard for me to believe, but I am entering my 7th season at the Brooklyn Flea. I have been there since the beginning of this now established institution of Brooklyn hipsterdom, artisanal foods, quirky design and sartorial flair. As I prepare my wares for the reopening of the original Ft. Greene flea this Saturday, I am taking a little stroll down memory lane and digging out some photos, shown below, of my very first day at the Flea.

There was definitely a more feminine (framed hankies), shabby chic (chenille bed spreads and vintage chippy mirrors) kind of feel to my flea booth back in April of 2008. Over the years I have shed some of these inclinations and veered toward a more historical Americana aesthetic. I was already amassing old school maps and charts back in 2008, but it had yet to blossom into a full-fledged obsession. Stay tuned this spring for some truly great new additions to my classroom inventory- I just unearthed two huge lots of wonderful maps.

Just for fun (or self-indulgence) I thought I would share some photos of interiors that inspired me back in 2008.

For a bit of contrast, there were some absolutely gorgeous and inspiring interiors in the New York Times just this week that felt as if I could have dreamed them up….or designed them myself.
