While we're on the subject of events in Seattle that should not be missed... I always try to make one of the twice a year Punk Rock Flea Markets. The one in the summer is my favorite because even the outdoor portion is packed to the brim with vendors. There is a whole lot of great vintage shopping, handmade wares and delicious homemade treats both savory and sweet to gather up. And everything there... cheap! Even the cost of admission is a whopping $1.
Just like Folklife there is a lot of great eye candy for a great outfit photo obsessed person like myself. Sima was kind enough to let me hassle her while she relaxed in the sun outside the market.
When I got home I threw all of my Flea market finds on the bed and got to trying them all on. This year was very fruitful. A mint condition wool Pendleton jacket and full length striped skirt, two beautiful silk blouses in bright colors, a romper, a lace cardigan, a fabulous ruffley floral full length dress that can't wait to be belted and two very old (I'm guessing 1950's) button up shirts. Phew! I love coming home with that much loot. My go to spot at PRFM is Adria Garcia's booth. She is the owner of Capitol Hill vintage boutique/treasure gallery Indian Summer. She has the best eye! Her station at the the flea market is a dream come true. Lucky for you readers, her shop is year round. Go check it out.
