Cleaning Up at the Brooklyn Flea

Nov 23rd, 2008 | Categories: Americana, New York City | by Michael Williams

I did some damage this morning at the Brooklyn Flea. There were about half as many vendors this week compared to the week prior (I’m guessing because of the cold weather), but I still managed to walk away with three (count ‘em!) bullet pencils, a Sears denim chore coat from the 1970s and four magazines from the 1960s. Goes to show, when it is on, it’s on!

    I’d be curious to know if any of the images from the LIFE mags you picked up are available online now through the must-discussed LIFE image archive available on Google Image Search.

    That’s a great coat. In case you aren’t aware, A Continuous Lean was mentioned in an article about popularity of American heritage brands. The article appeared in the Image section of today’s Los Angeles Times.

    The LIFE from September 3rd 1965 with the Astronauts is awesome. I have that one too! The one from June 18th 1965 also has some great space photos
