There were stands and stands of EVERYTHING! Hubby called it "Craigslist in real life". Jewelry, place sets, rugs, shoes (something about athlete's foot won't let me buy shoes at a flea market IMO), art, and comic books. Not many baby/toddler friendly pieces although someone mentioned there are more of a baby selection at the Sunday market. But the gems of market for ME-THE BAGS!!! The clutches, the shoulder bags, the carry ons (that I wanted but just knew I didn't need :-() we amazing. You can definitely tell the difference in quality in the older bags and the ones made today. So with that I went on a hunt for my new "it" bag and ladies and gents, Chunks stretched out of the stroller at this one stand we weren't paying attention to and then I found it! ::church angels sing::
I call her Rem, the cognac colour on the trim reminds me of the cognac Remy Martin (drunk-ish but that's what I think lol). The leather is in it's simplest form, not pulled and stretched so the grain is pronounced and sweet. Originally sold for over $350, I scored Rem for $65!!! OMG!!! The sweet lady who owned the stand KNEW her Dooneys, she had one herself, she even put a penny in it for good luck. So from your mouth the God's ears sweetheart! I love a good find and an even better price tag. I think this may just turn out to be my everyday bag since it can take a little beating.
One more reason to fall back in love with my borough!
