Street Fairs


I have been going to street fairs for as long as I can remember…FOREVER. As an Upper East Sider, I could walk out of my front door and just happen upon one.

AND…fancy pizza! So cute. Mmmmm.Photo Credit: Michelle Williams

NOW, this stand I love! Such a great idea. Teas and spices galore! You can get fresh herbs, even crystallized ginger in whatever quantity you want! We—well, my husband, Franklin—bought savory.

Look how gorgeous…I mean really, look at those gorgeous colors. This one below isn’t even color corrected. Simply stunning.  Street Fair

And what better than a fedora to go along with it? HA. Well, these straw fedoras are far more appropriate for the weather that they were being sold in. If I hadn’t bought my cute hat at a street vendor, I would have been all over this!Photo Credit: Michelle Williams

Ugh, and how fun…ORIGINAL GRAPHIC TEES! Love that. In this same vein, there were original artwork tents—which sadly, but for obvious reasons I was asked not to photograph :(.Photo Credit: Michelle Williams

This last one made me feel like I was back in Italy. Leather purses being sold in a tent…yes, I was telaported back to Florence.
