Amazing pics ! Must have been great !


Blogger Yoko said ... (3:26 PM) : 

I love the name "mottainai" flea market. Mottainai is a spectacularly descriptive Japanese word that unfortunately doesn't have an English counterpart. Loosely translated it means wasteful, but in reality it means so much more than that. These Japan photos make me so nostalgic (or natsukashii)!

Blogger Catalina said ... (4:27 PM) : 

such fascination with american culture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 PM) : 

Even more photos of this flea market to make me jealous!! I love all the "Americana" available, but I would love to see some "old" Japanese items for sale. Everyone looks so happy it a special event or something?


Blogger Yoli said ... (4:31 PM) : 

I need to be on a plane to Japan. It is all your doing.


Blogger Javier Sendín said ... (4:31 PM) : 

Wow, that market looks so amazing!

I hope you took the Coco-Cola tray...too good to leave!


Blogger Henri said ... (4:45 PM) : 

I really like the guy in the all in one.


Blogger caroline lee said ... (4:55 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:07 PM) : 

What kind of camera is she holding?


Anonymous Kristijonas said ... (5:19 PM) : 

Very colorful... otherwise, this woman looks atrocious.


Anonymous Caroline said ... (5:38 PM) : 

very nice optimistic colours.


Anonymous kagitsune said ... (5:45 PM) : 

Rei has a great style and an even greater smile. :D I love those blues!

And yes, Gingerbread house purse. Reminds me of Emily Temple Cute (another Japanese lolita brand). ^^


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:56 PM) : 

adoro l'idea di usare l NEVERFULL di LOUIS VUITTON come uno zaino!!!


Blogger Alginus said ... (6:16 PM) :

I can't believe you stumbled across vintage american memorabilia!

Hello Dasein!


Blogger Sunshinemom said ... (9:35 PM) : 

I like the lady in the pics. She looks like a pixie - naughty and cute!


Anonymous Christine said ... (10:38 PM) : 

She looks like a young Yoko Ono :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 PM) : 

Aw, Rei seems like the Japanese version of Amelie... too cute ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 PM) : 

I think you found your element, here!


Blogger J. said ... (12:27 AM) : 

I can't help but think the old man in the jean ensemble could be a cartoon character. His expression is so comical. And I love the house-purse in the fourth last photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 AM) : 

PS Rei's quirky, gamin face is absolutely gorgeous. Was she your escort/guide around the markets or is she a model?

Beautiful vivid colors and tone


Blogger kristina - no penny for them said ... (4:00 AM) :

Anonymous Cecylia said ... (4:24 AM) : 

Wish I was there!! So envious!


Blogger SuzieM said ... (6:21 AM) : 

love all these pictures. so special...


Anonymous Joanna Roman said ... (7:16 AM) : 

haaaa!!! Louis Vuitton bag worn as a backpack! That's great sence of distance towards THE BRAND!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:15 AM) : 

The flea market, or at least your photographic representation of it, presents a very Americana affair. Seeing how people appropriate, and re-interpret Americana (or any other nationalist period from any place) is always interesting. I think Tokyo is particularly adept at owning, and adding a unique Japanese twist / aesthetic to events (flea market), and fashion.



Anonymous Martijn Mendel said ... (10:20 AM) : 

hah the first photo is so cute!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 AM) : 

The belt she is holding up with the gingham check dress is great - good eye! I also like that she isn't dressed in that strange little girl style - there's something creepy to me about that affectation.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 AM) : 

These flea market pictures are quite wonderful except the one here in p.3 with the guy doing a peace sign. I can't put my finger on it, but he looked gross. Maybe it was the mustache.


Blogger Nyrha said ... (12:03 PM) : 

Very beautiful pictures!

And that converse shot is so lovely!


Blogger Natalia said ... (12:34 PM) : 

I wish I were there!!

Rei is my favorite subject of yours! She's got great style and energy.

Going to a flea market in Japan is a dream of mine, but I probably wouldn't fit into anything.


Anonymous Chuzai Living said ... (9:30 PM) : 

I love the name of the market "mottainai". It means wasteful, but the connotation of the word is positive and it means that you shouldn't throw out the item since it's still useful. Someone's waste can be someone else's gem. You have great photos. I commented on the other post and I accidentally clicked "publish" many times.... I'm sorry. It wasn't intentional.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:28 AM) : 

I *love* the girl in #4.


Anonymous Middleseason said ... (4:30 AM) : 

I love market. Great atmosphere!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 PM) : 

I love how the outfit of the girl in the 4th picture down seems to portray a character. I get a kind of antique-eclectic-country vibe here. So calm, so cute, so chic. Very unique but on her it just seems to work :)


Blogger Edgar said ... (7:21 PM) : 

I loved those picturesssss


Blogger Hilary said ... (9:22 PM) : 

Joanna Roman the very thing that caught my eye and made me chuckle. A Louis Vuitton tote bag worn as a backpack...clever and also so practical at a flea market , I'm sure! Love the photos of the day!


Blogger Yeji Jun said ... (12:04 AM) : 

omg. these pictures are just like art work from any galleries in Chelsea. nice job.


Blogger Just me and my bon genre! said ... (9:33 AM) : 

The elderly man in the blue overalls seriously killed someone... red stain marks all the way to the pocket.. i suspect that's where the murder weapon was placed..
murder she wrote, anyone?

love his look though, very comfy & blue..


Blogger dehl said ... (1:07 PM) : 

wowww... my stunning grandpa... ahahha....


Blogger Glamour-Och-Fläskpannkaka said ... (9:08 AM) :

the old man is beautifull


Blogger Orhedea said ... (11:07 AM) : 

the 1st photo is very interesting. each peace of clothing on the girl looks like something a grandma could wear, but when put together in an outfit along with house on her neck it looks...unique, interesting, chic!


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:08 PM) : 

I love the hippie-ish couple!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 AM) :

What an absolutely fabulous series of photos!


Blogger LimtdEdition said ... (12:55 PM) : 

I thought it was very unique how she carried her LV tote as a backpack! =)


Blogger Zbarsky said ... (5:41 AM) :
