Today was the day I FINALLY met Bunny from Bunny's Victory!!!
About a week ago we made plans through Facebook to meet up and go thrifting in Brooklyn. So we decided to go to Brooklyn Flea and while there visit some nearby vintage/thrift stores.
So at 7:30 this morning I woke up, did my hair and makeup (I had a tremendous migraine the night before so did not get a chance to set my hair. Ended up with an updo) and put on my newest ebay score and headed to Williamsburg, Brooklyn!
We met at the entrance of the outdoor flea market and I was immediately greeted by a fabulously dressed Bunny and her SUPER cute family. I met her hubby and her adorable little girl and the absolutely cutest little boys I've ever seen... Can you tell I was smitten by her little family!
Excuse the jacket and cardigan! It was 40 degrees when we got to the flea market!!
We walked around Brooklyn Flea for a while and saw some really cute things.
Neither one of us saw too much that tickled our 1940's/1950's vintage fancy. BUT I did score 2 handkerchiefs and THESE!!!!!!!!!
These are my new pride and joy. Sitting right there on a vendors table were a set of Franciscan "Starburst" cups and saucers... for $20! Now I just have to find somewhere to display them.
From there we went to Buffalo Exchange!
They had some awesome stuff but nothing in my size. Bunny almost talked me into a 1960ish dress but I decided against it because of the color. It was...you guessed it...pink! HAHA! I promised Honey I would lay off the pink dresses for a while so I decided against it!
After Buffalo Exchange we went to Monk's. I actually liked this store even though I didn't buy anything. The atmosphere was great and things were organized well. I think that if I keep going I'll find something that I like. I'm going to try to check back there a couple times a month. THIS store I liked!! So not a total loss. Possible future buys are better than no buys at all!
A pic with Bunny's cutie pie!!! I'm sooo in love!!
After a lot of walking around we had brunch in a nearby restaurant. It was great to get to sit down with Bunny and her family and get to know them a little more. I truly enjoyed myself!
We visited one more vintage store before we parted. Malin Vintage. Although BEAUTIFUL, it was WAAAYYY out of our price range. Bunny found a fabulous 1950s (at least I think it was 50s. I can't really remember now...) day dress for...drumroll please... $189.00... Yes, you read correctly... 189 big ones!!!
This is when we parted ways. The little ones were getting a little tired from the busy day and I had to get home to go to the supermarket and get a nap!!!!
I can't express how much I enjoyed my day visit with Bunny! She is definitely a stand up gal!! She is sooo much fun, very open and giving and HILARIOUS! I wish you could all get a chance to meet her just once.
We've already made tentative plans to do some more thrifting and go to the Brooklyn Children's Museum! Next time I'm bringing Honey! I'm sure they'll get along like gangbusters!!!
OH!! I almost forgot!! I wanted to show off my dress without the sweater! By the time I arrived back at my brownstone it was a little warmer. I LOVE this dress. It was actually much warmer to wear than I thought it would be. Not sure I could get away with wearing it past spring. So pretty and PINK!
Here's hoping your day was as great as mine!!!
