One of my favorite things about New York City is the abundance of street vendors and flea markets. Not only are they awesome to find unique pieces, but they also inspire creativity and motivation to create my own DIYs.
I linked pictures to vendor’s sites where I could. Also, check out Artists and Fleas and Brooklyn Flea to see more vendor sites. I remember years ago I saw Erica Weiner at a flea market in Williamsburg and now she seems to be quite successful, so not only are they great for shoppers, they’re great for designers looking for exposure.
