New Addition: Seltzer Bottle {and Manhattan Flea Markets}

28/06/2011 § 2 Comments

This weekend I was in the mood to do a bit of flea marketing, but didn’t quite feel like leaving Manhattan to do it, especially since it was Pride weekend and pedestrian/transit traffic was more than bit disorganized as a result.  Alternatively, I hit up two markets that were close to home and scooped up this pretty blue seltzer bottle after a bit of haggling. I’ve been wanting one for awhile, and now I’m guessing that this is to be the first of more than a few. I think they’ll look very pretty lined up on a shelf where the sunlight can hit them…

If you’d like one of your own, you can find an ebay search for “vintage seltzer bottles” here.

Some of my favorite flea markets in the City:

  • GreenFlea Market
    Located on Columbus Avenue between West 76th and 77th Streets on the Upper West Side.
    Open Sundays, 10am to 530pm
    Notes: Especially good for costume jewelry.  There is a good farmer’s market just across the street as well.
  • Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market
    Located on West 39th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues in Hell’s Kitchen
    Open every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm
    Notes: Lots of clothing.
  • Chelsea Antiques Garage
    Located at 112 West 25th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues, in a parking garage.
    Open every Saturday & Sunday from 9am to 5pm
    Notes: A few years back I was put onto this flea market by Jamie over at The Standard Edition.  Of the three markets listed here, it’s definitely the best and has the most varied and interesting selection of items.  If you only have time for one market, I’d choose this one and spend a good few hours poking around its two floors.
