Today's spotlight is on Eddie Ross.
Im sure everyone who has a full google reader blog list is already fully aware of his genius. Clearly, he has many facets including being a fabulous designer,
skilled floral arranger, furniture restorer and stylish crafter but that is not why I am in awe. The skill that absolutely floors me everytime is his amazing way with a flea market!
Ive lived in New York my whole life. Ive been to these flea markets. Trust me, they are not the vintage treasure uptopia that Martha Stewart or HGTV would have you believe. They are 99.99% junk. So its no small feat that Eddie is able to walk into the chaos and walk out with score after score. Its more than a cool trick, its a talent that makes me addicted to his posts. Check out some of the goods:
Not only does he share what he found with his readers, he also gives some good tips on how to score a find yourself. Now if only I could translate some of his tips into flea market gold. Oh design gods, grant me the power of Eddie Ross the next time Im flea shopping. :)
My only question is: Where does he keep all of these great things?
