Flea Market Finds

Sunday's flea market did not turn up the brass buttons I was searching for, however, I did not walk away empty handed. Every time I go to the flea market I head straight for the same spot - a clothing stand run by Brittney, one of the designers behind the line Fremont. Some how she has always managed to compile a collection of the most amazing vintage dresses. I had limited myself to only looking for fall/winter pieces (otherwise, I'm just tempted by everything). I really lucked out because tucked in between lots of cute little sundresses, I found these two...



The first is a wool mini dress with pleats and brass buttons down the front (OK, so I did buy some brass buttons after all). I'm always a sucker for these kinds of details on a dress. It's also fully lined and has pockets. Pockets!


Next I found this 70's mini dress with a paisley print (looks like it used to be long but has been altered). I love the fall colors and long sleeves. I can't wait to wear this one with tights and boots.

Hi! I love the Fairfax flea market and I too have my usual favorite vendors. I'm trying to figure out which vendor you're talking about. Is Brittney a really petite, super cute Vietnamese girl? I've seen a vendor like this with super cute vintage dresses that have been altered ( i suspect to fit a super petite, super cute Vietnamese girl). I love your blot, btw! I just found it.

Hi Monelle - thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying the blog. Well, I thought I was being pretty vague about the flea market stand - I can't give away all my shopping secrets you know. But sounds like you've totally busted me.

Hi Susie G! I'm looking for big ( about 1 inch diameter) brass buttons to put on a pea coat. I need about 10 or 12 of them. They don't all have to be the exact same. Thanks for the offer!
