[The 'keep it clean' soap from the Brooklyn Flea. The presence of wrestlers always indicate a bar that is special, and thus only $7.]





I have so much jazz to pin up here kids, so I'm just gonna spill it all, sans editing.....

1.I have been listening to Talk Talk's Laughing Stock from 1991 for the past few days. It is so perfect. LISTEN TO IT (especially if you like Genesis, the Phil Collins years).





2. Brooklyn Flea. Sure it was cold and windy but me an my mooks sold a bunch of soap and meant it! I also met a slew of great folks and found some treasures:


A.) In a world of boring tote bags - this from The Fair School is a beacon...


B.) These earrings made by Erica Weiner ... who has a blog which is really great ... which is where I found this amazing new perfumer out of brooklyn called D.S. & Durga...


C.) This 19th Century photo album....


D.) Reincarnated furniture by Nightwood. Their objects and furniture are all made from scavanged wood. Each unique piece has a raw and eerie quality about it. This is a flag-like wall hanging held by artist/partner Myriah Scruggs. Their website nightwoodny.com is coming soon....


E.) A pack of strawberry pincushions by the truly gifted Sian Keegan...


F.) Milton Carter, whose King Tut t-shirt has made me a better person, was also there. I told him how his "sphinx shirt" has changed my life. He told me it was King Tut, not a sphinx. (I just want to say here that I know the difference between King Tut and a sphinx, but that in that particular moment I was confused.)

Signing off to take a walk and practice some magic,

SR

Enjoyed meeting you at the Flea and loving my soaps. I'll be back for more soon! I just hope it's a bit warmer for the next one!
