Oh, the thrill of the search, the promise of surprise....These photos capture, that, Scott. Now I want to dress in all shades of blue today.

Ooh, I love the gondolier stripes!


Blogger Lorena said ... (8:51 PM) : 

That guy needs a mustache trim but his rings are awesome. These people all look very fun and free-spirited, their looks remind me of a 90s take on hippie-style.

I am really loving these flea market shots. One of the most inspiring and captivating posts I've seen in a while... kind of a relief from all the put-together New Yorkers I see everywhere around me.


Blogger Nadine2point0 said ... (10:11 PM) : 

I'm curious to know why all of the flea market vintage-style clothing is very 'western'...the hats, the plaid, the denim....
BTW I love that guys rings!


Blogger HAG said ... (10:13 PM) : 

Don't you just love how the japanese women can hold up a pair of pants around their neck and know if it will fit someone in their family? LOL It's like they have mental measure tape around their neck and they know each person in their family how far past that they need to go.


Blogger Marie El. said ... (10:36 PM) : 

I was in one of these fleamarkets recently here in Tokyo. I must say it was one of the most interesting things to do. These photos demonstrate perfectly how it is. Fun, laid-back and stylish!


Blogger H. J. said ... (10:57 PM) : 

when i look at the pictures, my (heart's) home town looks like a completely different planet. it scares me...


Anonymous ronel said ... (11:03 PM) :

Blogger Unknown said ... (11:09 PM) :

Your pictures are known for capturing style, but I think you do a wonderful job of taking portraits of people. Life and personality just pop out of your pictures! I love your pictures from other countries!

These must be THE best posts you ever did Scott ! I just love the atmosphere at fleamarkets. The vibrance - the YAY feeling when you find that little treasure nobody saw before you !
You've captured this extremely well !

i love all of your photos !

Love the Tokyo pics, such fun people seem to have getting dressed over there.

I was just looking at the pics from The Uniform Project which have a similar playful spirit I think. Have you heard of the project? A girl has raised about 60,000 so far for schools in India after pledging to wear the same dress for a year. BUT the twist is she uses awesome accessories and clothing combos to turn the simple grey dress into a million (well I guess 365 to be precise) looks.

There's a cool video that flashes through all the looks at if you're interested. Now I'm off to play with my little grey dress!


Anonymous Nickie Frye said ... (9:52 AM) : 

These are incredible photos. You are a genius! I'm just learning to use a real (non-point-and-shoot) camera & I am blown away by your work.

Love the guy with the rings, btw.


Blogger tim said ... (10:51 AM) : 

I like the color/look of the flea mkt photos. A little different than usual, but fitting.


Blogger Little Lovables said ... (11:16 AM) : 

love her day dress. such a vibrant flea market full of characters


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 AM) : 

This is Rei from Comme des Garcons right? I mean, that's fantastic that's she's shopping at a flea market. I recently read how she's done with black as a colour because it isn't that new anymore, and I can see from her outfits that she is into vintage now.


Blogger saradowle said ... (12:13 PM) : 

I've never known about this side of Japan, but your photos are a fantastic insight! Makes me want to visit right away!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:56 PM) : 

I've really enjoyed all your photos from Japan. Thanks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:24 PM) : 

rei kawakubo is 57 years old now, still looking quite, but not quite that young.
the girl in the photos is rei shito, she´s doing the blog style from tokyo.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Those were some interesting pictures! I also like how you captured the fashion aspect by showing us all the different ways they dress. One thing I noticed was that not too many people overseas wear suits or tuxedos unless it is a special occasion. At, they are offering a 10% discount if you use the discount code "bestdeals" when checking out. All kinds of apparel for great prices!

Were you in China? Y....


Anonymous Snappy said ... (7:43 AM) : 

The flea market pictures are fabulous. The colours, the styles on everyone...Especially liking the picture of the guy with the blue hat and turquoise ring. Very snappy!

Blogger by Sutton said ... (1:44 PM) : 

i love the turquoise rings! the navajo jewelry has been spotted all over japan, and in your prior photo of the man in shades of all white. i love them!!


Blogger Tony said ... (3:06 PM) : 

The very last picture is great with the red, white, blue, brown, black, and green. The pairing of the blue and white seem very classic to me. With the handkerchief in the back right pocket with the red and black print contrasts very well with the solids of the shirt and pants. It is also able to match the print of the backpack while still be a very strong contrasting element.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:22 PM) : 

O.K., enough with this fabulous flea market I can't go to! The people all look so sunny and happy and I'd love to dig thru all that stuff. So please.........


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:14 PM) : 

I love the guy in the 2d picture. He seems so unique and so proud of it, which is reflected through his clothing choice. The colors play together and the expression plays it up! :)

Anonymous pianosa said ... (11:26 AM) :
