The Brooklyn Flea Market

I’m in Connecticut now but I haven’t finished my NYC posts so more about Connecticut later.

On our way to the Brooklyn Flea market, Jean and I  stopped for a photo at the same spot as last year.

Jean and me

There’s always interesting backdrops.

Last year Jean spotted Bill Murray buying a carpet at the flea market and I had a picture taken with him. He’s a funny guy and very friendly. This year we focused on finding little treasures and I bought a necklace that I wanted to buy last year.

All that walking and shopping made us hungry so we left the flea market …

Jean and me

and enjoyed lunch at a vegan diner CHAMPS

Check out Jean’s post about Brooklyn for a great perspective with a surprise ending!

Have a wonderful week!


I’m linking up with all the fashionistas at Patti’s

    So many worthy comments already echoing my thoughts so I won’t go on and on being repetitious .I am so glad that you can find vegan foods. I keep trying, without much success, so I simply minimize my consumption of animal foods.

    Hi lovely Carmen! It looks like a wonderful time you and Jean had. I would love to go to thrift stores or flea market but cant stand long, so will vicariosly enjoy your story Funny that you got some great shots in front of some really neat murals, I just came back from my Charleston vacation and have shots from some artisit there with a mural. I hope you are enjoying your Connecticut vacation, as I was on vacation the 20-25th. I am doing a 3 part post on my beach vacation to Charleston SC, so when you get a chance and want to stop by, I would love to share my trip as well. Neat about Bill Murray, he seems like he would be down to earth. I love love , the white jacket on you and your adorable taupe flower purse You look wonderful. Love jean’s dress , especially with the tatoos! Enjoy your trip!

    My darling girls … you guys should be so proud of your genes! Lovely youze guyz, but genes don’t always supply the great taste you both display so consistently! So happy you got to rock the Big Apple as a team. Excellent!

      It’s easy to find great backdrops in NYC, the tricky part is waiting for people to pass by. I sat by a statue of Jackie Gleason and there was just no way to snap a photo without someone in it.

      Have a great day!

      ❤ carmen


  6. Great backdrops, but the real works of art is you and your daughter. 😉
    Can’t wait to see your palazzo pants!

      Awww thank you Joni! Coming from an artist, that’s quite a compliment! You know I admire you very much!

      I can’t wait to wear my palazzo pants. I’ve had them almost a month and still haven’t worn them. Does that ever happen to you? Sometimes I wear things home right from the store!

      Fashion is a form of art! 🙂

    Carmen in white with capris, the best combination, or at least, my favorite combination. Opening this post, a few words come to my mind, beauty, elegance, happiness, balance, Audrey … All of them help me to describe the wonderful scene that means seeing a happy mother with her daughter. A daughter with which it shares many things. You stay in NYC is a beautiful holiday, where fun meets with happiness, a perfect pairing. Your happy face clearly shows.
    As I said before, I love to see you dressed in white, you already know. And I love to see you wearing your capris. The shirt is cute and capris are the hallmark of the queen. The top, red and white, and ballerinas, animal print are the perfect complement to the outfit, I really like. Everything matches perfectly, even that small purse that I like.
    Vegan meals round the post, and demonstrate, once again, that your blog is special, art, health, beauty, landscape, smile …

      Thank you dear JM! I am fortunate indeed to share this fashion hobby with Jean and enjoy an awesome holiday in NYC! My mind is still spinning with activities and all the sights and sounds and tastes of such a fantastic time in a city I love (but only to visit)!

      I’m glad you like my white outfit, it is the same shirt I wore the first time you commented on white and included me in one of your fashion reviews with all the ladies in white. This Elisa Cavaletti shirt is worth every penny, because I wear it often and it has had many appearances in my blog. The capris are new (only cost $10) and this is their debut on my blog ha ha!!

      If you ever get to NYC, I will be happy to share a list of vegan restaurants; you will not be disappointed.

      Your Queen of Capri 😉
