If you’re a vintage lover / second hand shopper like me, you love any and all good flea markets. So on a Saturday, sans child, we decided to pop out to the Leslieville Flea on a whim. So glad that we did. The stalls there were delightful! But despite the beautiful colors etc., the first stop involved getting some iced coffee – in my own travel mug, with my own metal straw. *Can I get a holla for the environment!?* Armed with caffeine, I went into the vintage fray.

The location was at the Ashbridges Estate, and it’s such a pretty location that I of course took pictures. While setting up and getting shots, I heard a voice, a woman’s voice. She started saying, “Work it! Oh yeah!” And I look over and who should I see but a lovely friend out for a walk with her dog. So what else to do but tell her to “Get your butt over here and show me how it’s done!”

Chatting and catching up a bit was lovely¬† – she’s delightful, and then of course we continued shopping. Stopping by the Purabeada stall, naturally, was a dream! Their bracelets are amazing. As you can see, I’m wearing two, but I really won’t be satisfied until I collect a full armload. Get yourself some too at the next flea market on July 21st in the Distillery District. Check the Leslieville Flea site for more info and dates, and also follow Purabeada on Insta for their next location.

And yes, I did walk away with a little something – this vintage red silk blouse. Score!
