Lovely Stuff, Brooklyn Style

brooklyn-vintage-pop-cultureLast weekend's white-out pushed a few fine sellers' schedules back a bit. And they're here this weekend in all of their glory with the benefit of time to make and collect and be ready for some show and sell. Honeysuckle & Hearts is known to many vintage enthusiasts around Brooklyn for their pop-up presence at last year's DeKalb Market and at Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market. They're coming home with a treasure trove of awesome finds for dudes and the fairer set. Good picking for those who dig the hunt.

ArinMayaMade is Brooklyn-based designer ArinMaya's downright fascination with recycling and up-cycling textiles and textures and turning them into objects of envy and obsession.

If you like it, put a cap on it. Or a fedora, panama or porkpie. C'mon, this is Brooklyn in 2013 after all and Antoinette & Aurora are a modern-day haberdashery and millinery that gives throwback styles a contemporary twist. The most perfect of all accessories for your weekend galavanting, you know.

A5 is artist and designer Ayaka Hara's stop-you-in-your-tracks jewelry and home decor from dried flowers. It's a well-known form of expression but Ayaka's wearable art is not to be missed and it makes us long for Spring flowers...

Williamsburg vintage devotees may recognize Kate Amendala's Forever Tragic Vintage from her keen eye for women's wearable vintage clothing from the 1970s and 1980s, eras that are worthy of so much fine fashion critique. Thankfully, Kate's bringing the best of the best for the all-knowing Williamsburg set.

Plutocracy gave us a false start last Fall but designer Anitra Michelle is revving on all pistons and is bringing her ready-to-wear womenswear to WillyB on the heels of Fashion Week. Vroom!
