As much as I love thrifting and all, I don’t make it to flea markets very often. So when I made it to the Treasure Island Flea it was very exciting for me.
I spent the sunny afternoon strolling around with the baby and husband. I liked it that this flea market wasn’t overly crowded, especially when I was pushing a stroller. Though when it gets crowded, my stroller is also my weapon. :)
I had the yummiest thai pork tacos and spicy shrimp tacos from Le Truc. The flavors were so spot-on! Le Truc is a school bus turned into a food truck, and you can either dine inside the bus or outside. Kinda cool, right? They’re usually around town in SF so if you haven’t tried, follow their twitter.
The mark-ups at this flea market were kind of pricey, in my opinion. So a good bargaining skill is a must. I ended up buying a vintage bust form (below) from the 1960’s. The vendor originally priced it at $250, and I bargained it down to $100. I probably still overpaid.
I don’t know exactly what it was that caught my eye, but I just really liked it. I don’t make clothes or sew, so maybe I’ll do some styling with it and have some fun? It’s kind of like dressing up a life size barbie.
Speaking of markets and fairs, there’s a Renegade Craft Fair happening in San Francisco this weekend at Fort Mason. I went to the last one during the X’mas season and it was crazy! There were lots of people & vendors, but despite the crowd I still managed to find some cool posters, a darling necklace, and some really cute baby stuff. So if you’re into unique and crafty designs, this is the fair not to be missed.
I thought I also show you the outfit I wore with the really cute Lulu’s vest I got from the SwapLulus party. It was the perfect layering piece that added color and texture, and the flea was a great place to flaunt it!
