Last night my sis Becka and I headed out for a crazy night out on the town. Well kind of, we went to the Preview Show for Porter Flea. This was my first time and I was beyond stoked.
We got there as the doors were opening (I’m always on time when I know I get a childfree night out, thanks hubs). And much to our surprise parking was a breeze and the line was short.
After having our ID’s checked, because to most its probably unclear on whether or not we are 21 (thanks Rodan+Fields) we headed inside and were kindly greeted by cans of Jackalope beer and an adorable bag from Jenis to carry our loot. What do I love more than shopping for homemade goods? Shopping with booze for homemade goods. Winning. And we are off….
There were some amazingly adorable booths set up. All kinds of goods like kids clothing, jewelry, art, flowers, leather goods, furniture, shoes. You name it and they had it! At times I felt like i was walking through a Parisian Market (or what one would who has never been to Paris would think a Parisian Market would look like). Check out these paper flowers by Amaranthus
I forgot to mention they had amazing local vendors with food and beautiful tables capes! We started out with a cookie each from Littlest Love Bakery. I tried to split one but Becka wasn’t having it. Looking back Becka was right for once. I didnt want to share that little slice of heaven it was the perfect blend of sweet and salty. Also If I ever throw myself a birthday party this is the theme. Think lots of gold, pineapples, palm leaves, pink, and black and white. Invites to go out soon.
After we grabbed our cookie we headed outside for food trucks. I am an avid follower of all things food truck. Looking for a good time? Find where the food trucks hang and good time is guaranteed.
Outside there were even more adorable vendors like Amelia’s Flower Truck in fun airstreams and old trucks.
I didn’t even get a picture of our amazing burger or the name of the truck. Blood sugar was plummeting and we were hangry. But it was the best.
Check out the goodies i scored! #ihaveathinkforblackandwhite It’s a problem and I can’t stop. #cantstopwontstop
- This Loves That adorable cross body bag or clutch and a tassle key chain. So in love with those prices too.
- The Magpie Co had adorable kids clothing and will now be my new go to. Check out those bloomers, do they come in my size? Because these leg rolls would look adorbs in them.
- Love & Lion temporary tats. Even more fun in person. So I left with donuts because who doesn’t want a donut tattoo. Hopefully I love it on so much I take it to the tattoo parlor to let them trace it for my first tattoo. Sorry mom.
So what are your plans for the rest of the day? Id hurry and get to Porter Flea before you miss all the good stuff. There is def something for everyone there.
