On Saturday, we came to see the Brooklyn Flea at the Piazza at Schimdts in Northern Liberties, but we were a day early. Dur! Instead, there was a free 104.5 concert going on. It was a sea of 20-something guys in the obligatory tight, cuffed cut-off shorts and tight plaid shirts and girls in high waisted shorts with messy buns their heads. Not exactly our scene, but we weren't going to let that ruin our afternoon.
We did a little thrifting at a vintage store in the piazza. My son was quite happy with the trading cards he found and my daughter was head-over-heels with her 1980s unicorn cloisonee pin.
Despite our botched plans, we took a walk along North 2nd Street and the kids admired the street art. I liked that they made perfect backgrounds for portraits of them.
Dos Segundos? Yes, sir! We'll have to go back for that one though. Since it was a late lunch/early dinner, we had the scrambled tofu (amazing!) and the arugala and pumpkin seed salad (so good!). They also have the most amazing green salsa. I could drink it by the glass!
This is Duke from Duke and Winston. Isn't he adorable? He lazily reclined, motionless, with his tongue sticking popped out of his cute mushy mouth the whole time we were in the store.
Of course, we had to stop by Art Star while we were in the neighborhood.
And we promised the kids that if they were good, they could get ice cream, so we stopped by Little Baby's at Garden Variety. The non-dairy coconut was very creamy and very sweet. A great ending to a surprisingly good day.
