Since Chelsea started college we’ve had a little tradition of spending a special day in the city at holiday time. Always included are a walk through Central Park and a look at the store windows along Fifth Avenue. But last year I wanted to do things a little differently. I wanted a marathon experience – […]

July 5th, 2013

You may recall last year a quick visit to the Renegade Craft Fair in Williamsburg. We tacked it onto a Brooklyn Flea run, and by the time we got there it was hot as blazes. We managed to take a decent look though, and made note to come back this year. Well, it was hot as […]

NYC Bake Sale, No Kid Hungry

May 2nd, 2013

I’ve got an invitation that you simply can’t refuse. The Brooklyn Flea. A fabulous cause. These cookies. And me! Yes, I will be “working” at the Flea this Saturday, doing a shift at the NYC Bake Sale, to benefit No Kid Hungry. This is a remarkable organization, which I wrote about last year when I […]

favor- “ette”: liddabit sweets

April 4th, 2012

Repeat after me: Bourbon. Coffee. Bacon. Caramel. Popcorn. While these are five most excellent ingredients all on their own, they also happen to come together in the amazing kitchen of Liddabit Sweets (in – what else? – their Bourbon-Coffee-Bacon Caramel Corn, of course).

brooklyn bound: smorgasburg

brooklyn bound: smorgasburg

August 10th, 2011

This is one of those times where I wish I could just transport you all to this place, rather than attempt to describe it in words: ……I mean, seriously??? I mentioned Smorgasburg (the name is a mash-up of “smorgasbord” and “Williamsburg”) in a recent post about Brooklyn Flea. Seems that one of the more unexpected (and […]

Where do I begin to describe one of my favorite shopping/eating/people watching destinations?? I suppose from the beginning…… In 2008 I read about a new flea market that was slated to open in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. I did a bit of a double take as Fort Greene is where my alma mater, Pratt Institute is […]
