Another day, another market

Sunday, September 2nd, 2007 | All Things

Visited the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, which was quite a bit more lively than the last time I was here in the dead of winter, despite the holiday weekend.

A sign at the entrance on Ninth Avenue advertised a $1 shuttle ride to the market’s affiliate location at The Garage on 25th Street, but no time for that trip this afternoon. I found a pair of cool, retro-looking chairs and some great, if pricey vintage jewelry, but ultimately left empty-handed. Maybe I’m just all flea-ed out.

The markets always something of a gamble, but in the past, I’ve found the selection here more interesting than at some of the other markets around the city… at least ever since the dealers who once occupied the series of parking lots from 24th to 26th Streets in Chelsea were shuffled out to make way for high-rise, high-priced condos. No rugelach in Hell’s Kitchen, though. But at least now I know where to go if I ever need a full suit of plate armor.

Check out the rest of the pics on flickr. This market even has its own blog: FleaSpeech.

I know you love that blog name. And what eerie doll torsos…

Do I? “FleaSpeech” sounds like a site that would be banned in China.
I was a bit creeped out as well. Looked like the aftermath of some horrific doll massacre.

Go for it ...
