Flea Market at Eastern Market



My new bling earrings. 
The letterpress letters.  So cute!

I love flea markets.  Can I tell you that?  Good.  Because it's true.  When I was visiting Washington DC I had the pleasure to visit the Eastern Market Flea Market.  They are only open on Saturday and Sundays but on the weekdays they have a farmers market with fruits and veggies.  

I bought a couple things from the market.  I stopped by a few vintage booths (and yes there will be more in the shop this weekend, look out world!).  I also stopped at this lovely wooden print letter booth.  Oh how I love these little things to decorate with.  I got a couple letters: a large "S" for my last name.  And then a "c" and an "R" for the hubs and me.  Then the letter "5", because it's a favorite number.  Random, but that's me.

Oh.my.gosh. LOVE, with a capital L, Eastern Market. Practically perfect in every way. Please tell me you went inside and had one of the cookies from the bakery area. SO good. Some of my favorite jewelry is from there!

The letterpresses are great finds. Crate & Barrel has an amazing coffee table made up of a bunch of them. Want it so bad.

I'm SUPER new to the whole thrifting thing. I'm afraid a flea market would be overwhelming ;)

But, I look forward to the day that I can navigate and score the way you did!
love the letters AND those earrings are gorgeous.
