New York City Flea Markets

Last weekend I went to New York City to visit Dawn and meet up with Jes, her mom and her friend Judy (I plan to post about the entire trip on my blog in the next couple of days). We had been planning to hit some flea markets for months and we were NOT disappointed. We went to an outdoor flea market first where I spent probably an hour going though these letterpress letters (I have an antique letterpress that I have yet to use, I am a bit intimidated but it, I admit!) and ended up walking away with some great letters and hopefully will get some time to play with them on my press.

We spent the good part of the morning picking though all sorts of treasures, but not until later in the day when we were at a different flea market in Chelsea that I stumbled upon my favorite find of the day. An old photograph book FILLED with well over a hundred photographs, mostly of children standing and posing for the camera, from the early 1900's. I normally never buy photos in a book since a lot of them in a book are usually not always what I want. I would rather buy them individually and get photos that I know I can use in a collage or piece of work. But the majority of this album is not only usable but wonderful! I plan on using some soon and then coming back and sharing with you what I created.

I also found a lot of other great paper items (some Victorian trade cards, other old photographs, etc) and also a lot of other treasures (see below) that I can not wait to play with!! If you ever head to New York City, let me know so I can give you the information on some of the flea markets to hit!
