Francesco Biasia Handbag Sale

Francesco Biasia Handbag Sale

I bought my first Francesco Biasia handbag in Rome before they were available in New York.  Back then, I didn't know what I had.  I just knew that it was a chic Italian-made handbag of exquisite leather.  When I travel abroad, I try to look for interesting unique things that can't be found here.  Of course, when I learned about this week's Francesco Biasia sale, I h[...]

Brooklyn Flea is back...

A sure sign that spring has sprung... On this perfect Saturday after such a long winter, Brownstoner's Brooklyn flea in Ft. Greene returned this season.  With the 70-degree weather, I didn't need a jacket to browse the wares of more than 150 vendors selling outside Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School.  This huge flea market - one that could be Brooklyn's largest - [...]

Vintage Worthy: Dumbo Winter Pop-up Market

  I finally made it to Dumbo's pop-up flea market.  A gorgeous day.  The stuff for sale did not disappoint.  Lots of vintage. One vendor was selling French bakelite for $30 each.  Not bad.  I had my eye on the bracelets and a lovely straw handbag ($55) perfect for the warm months ahead.  No purchases this time - just wanted to scope out the place.  Planning to[...]

Marc Jacobs Winter Handbag Sale

Marc Jacobs Winter Handbag Sale

  Marc Jacob's winter handbag sale at his Mercer Street store in Soho was unbelievably mobbed.  I had a feeling that the line would be long, but I never imagined how long.  I stood out in the cold with dozens and dozens of women for nearly three hours.  I had to pop out of line a couple of times and go to the Angelica movie theater up the block to warm up.  My friend[...]
