on the hunt @ brooklyn flea market and new york gift fair

Emily loves to shop, and I love NY, so we can't stop ourselves from spending a sunny afternoon pointing, poking, and trawling through, not only the flea market, but also the new york home tradeshow.  Called "antiquing" 30 years ago, we found some great vintage trends at Brooklyn Flea that would add style, pop and personality to any room.   

Curiously, at the trade show, we noticed "new" vintage inspired designs that could have been straight out of the flea markets and vintage shops.   Vintage is hot, as it should be, and we're thankful that good designs of the past never go out of fashion.  One man's trash is another man's treasure, and yet another's new purchase, as you can see.

You know those conversations that begin with "when I win the lottery"? Well, I would own a vintage home shop where I wouldn't be concerned about making a living or collecting junk in my already filled apartment (because of course I would have a huge warehouse where I could store an unlimited amount of antique goods and fix things up as I so desire- my own Home Depot, if you will. Also I will need a truck for traveling the country. And did I mention everything will be free? For the good of your homes!)

In the meantime, we'll just continue to enjoy it as a hobby. And if you see something you like, let us know and we'll source it for you! (Just shoot us an email. Rehabitatdesign@gmail.com)
