Gypsy Nation: 70 North 7th Street (bet Kent Wythe). 2 blocks from Bedford Avenue.
On the weekend I visited Gypsy Nation Vintage, a stall at the Artists & Flea market in Williamsburg Brooklyn. I’ve been before, but this time I returned to take pictures (and erm…try on more pieces).
The Navajo/gypsy feel of everything is (to me) brilliant. I didn’t want to leave and I think the two owners, Jacqueline and Martha noticed (but they were so nice). Thank God they don’t mind having a good old natter. I imagined sitting cross legged on the floor, swapping thrift/vintage find stories and discussing the merits of high street/designer vs vintage but thought that might be pushing it (maybe next time).
Jacqueline (has a custom leather label called Queen of Hearts) and makes clothes and accessories including leather fringe bags, hip grazing leather fringe necklaces and lariats (she told me she was finishing up custom skinny leather trousers with detailing down the side of each leg).

ps. Yes, I did get something. Can you guess what it was?
