New York has many vintage markets. Given most are only visitable on the weekends, I had my weekends fully planned with vintage markets, such as the Williamsburg Flea Market and Smorgasburg. Additionally I had Hells Kitchen Market on the to do list!
The Thing with New York is, if you’re heading to the one you see so many other things. We stepped out to Times Square when going to Hells Kitchen, not very convenient considering we had never been there too. And yes , when we walked up the stairs I saw a Sephora where I got my favorite foundation, just afther that we spotted a Billabong store, a Manga store and so on when going our way to the flea market. We finally got there just 1.5 hours before the closing time at Hells Kitchen, but most vendors were already cleaning up their tables. Bummer of course, but also very logical, January in New York can be very cold. Nevertheless, I have tasted the atmosphere of the market, the neighborhood and the stuff. What a great little market amongst the skyscrapers, one that you really need to remember if you go that way girls! So that you get as a gift from me.
I’m gonna go pack my bag for my bootcamp in London next week, see you soon!
