SOURCING VINTAGE & FLEAS AROUND AMERICA


Most of what I've posted for Thrifty Thursday's has been about vintage & thrift stores local to me here in South Florida. But the blogosphere reaches beyond this location, so maybe these could be of help to you in your areas.

MISTER FREEDOM

Vintage sourcing isn't just necessarily for vintage furnishings. A good deal of designers get their inspirations for new apparel lines or color palettes by exploring vintage shops. You can too - by getting inspired by the fabric textures, layering, and color combinations as well as store layout, design and presentations. Although these posted here are more for Men's Apparel, they are still inspirational none-the-less! I found these through my husbands issues of DETAILS magazine and it's interesting to see their perspective on finding vintage in the US.

Some fleas to rummage through also are: The Rose Bowl Flea Market - Pasadena, California
and The Brooklyn Flea - Brooklyn, New York. Along with these fleas to checkout is a trend taking place called "pop up flea", where vendors come together in various locations like New York, San Fransisco, and even London. Read more at popupflea.com and at durablegoodsconcern.com.

So in your summer travels around the U.S.,
be sure to check these spots out and put them to the test!

Happy Thrifty Thursday!
