It is my pleasure to announce that the fourth semi-annual Top Shelf Flea Market was a great time and a great success. Consensus is, among vendors and patrons alike, that a good time was had by all. To say I feel gratified by the level of response we received is an understatement. "Humbled" is closer to the truth. As usual, I was far too busy to take many usable photos. The following will have to suffice.
Bobby from Boston as usual gives a lesson in how it's done. "We wanted a little more of a Motown 60s vibe with this years booth." Says owner Bobby Garnett. Note the white shoes and Chelsea boots. There was also an entire size run of deadstock permanent press stove pipe slacks with top pockets. A bit on the trim side for me, but perfect for the 24 year old set, who happened to be there in droves. In fact, one of the more gratifying aspects of the event was the sheer number of eager young people interested in all this old fuddy duddy stuff. Hope yet for the future, I guess.
As always, credit for the success of this event lies mainly with the vendors and visitors. I may work hard to pull this thing together, but it wouldn't mean a thing without the rest of you. Thanks.
p.s. the online Shop will be up and running again by the end of the week. Tons of new goodies on the way.
