new york street fairs - yay or nay?

June 04, 2013

I hate to haggle. 

The first time I remember learning what haggling was I was 11 and in France at a boardwalk fair. I had a language barrier, a conversion rate and 5th grade math working against me. Needless to say, I didn't get a deal. In fact, I probably got ripped off. 

Street fairs are a bargainer's dream. They put prices up knowing they can be talked down and still make a profit. I must have had my haggle A game on this weekend, because I talked my way into getting this purse for $10.

So I say YAY! to any place you can get a knock off Rebecca Minkoff for $10.

As for the other great things I didn't have the courage to bargain for at New York street fairs? 

Real butterflies turned into art. 
New addition to a gallery wall anyone?

Patterned rugs that look similar to expensive ones at Anthropologie.

Bracelets and necklaces galore. 

What do you think - "yay" or "nay" to street fairs and haggling?


  1. ALWAYS in for a bargain! Nice steal on your purse!

  2. Such amazing photos and what a great find! Well done on the purse, hopefully it holds up!

    The Classy Cubicle

  3. WOW! that looks AMAZING! i would yay it big time!
