Despite the overcast, drizzly weather, it managed to stay dry just in time for a visit to one of my favorite flea markets this weekend.  I couldn't have asked for a better Sunday; the combination of no rain, antique shopping, and brunch made it close to perfect. Not knowing what to expect since this particular flea market can be hit or miss, I was pleasantly surprised by both the strong vendor turnout and the large amount of buyers who seemed to be purchasing in droves. In my experience, the wet weather discourages both buyers and sellers, but not this time.  To  top if off, I spotted quite a few stylish shoppers in the crowd, and was reminded that I should start shooting street style again.

While shopping, I spotted some unique pieces, including a very Fall 2011 Prada-esque paneled shift dress from the 1960s, a $350 replica of Napoleon's very ornate pistol, a vintage British Airways carry on, and a memorable sweater with dogs embroidered on the front (seen in the last photo).  Unfortunately, my two favorite jewelry vendors weren't present, so no African beaded necklaces or 2 for $5 friendship bracelets for me.  Fortunately, my favorite kimono vendor brought her best wares, and after trying on a few crochet cardigans and fringe kimonos, I took one home. It's similar to the one I wore in a previous personal style post, and I can't wait to wear it with flared jeans or over a maxi dress.
