n honor of the fledgling spring season, I am happy to feature this wonderful, miniature mallard duck figurine. Made by Royal Doulton, this sweet fellow (he’s a male – the females are brown) is about the size of a quarter. I saw it on the table of Michael Rabinowitz at the East 67th Street Flea Market when I visited recently.Read more →

I saw Kimberlin Brown Jewelry at the St. Anthony’s Market on Houston Street when I first started writing my guidebook. I fell in love with Kimberlin’s botanical designs, especially her boxwood sprig pin with moonstone dew drops from her Midnight Forest Collection. Her work is inspired by plants, flowers, and ocean life. Kimberlin’s pieces are absolutely lovely and unique, perfect for a a resort vacation, a day in the city, or an evening at the theater.Read more →
Nothing says “hot summer in the city” better than comfy, sexy cut-off shorts. These Daisy Dukes are from The Indie Style Society and Meghann Early at Artists & Fleas. Meghan takes previously loved jeans, cuts them into shorts and then shreds them strategically. She dyes them in fun colors, like these lime green ones, and washes them twice to fix the color. She adds cool detailing, like rows of studs. I understand that Meghanm can also make custom hip hotpants from your own favorite jeans! So go this weekend and make the most of the rest of summertime!
And here are this weekend’s Market Picks!Read more →
