Its All About: Sisterhood

My sister and I live together, yet we don’t get to spend much time together. She’s a dancer, and I, an actress; so between training, work, and separate social lives our time together is limited.  In any event, we schedule time to spend together and this was one of those weekends. We walked from our place in Bedford-Stuyvesant to downtown Brooklyn, around the Ft. Greene area and this is what we saw and did along the way…

Our first stop was to Bedford Galleries for some decorating inspiration. A few years ago my mother and I stopped inside and I picked up a pair of over-sized, mustard colored, velvet lampshades for $20. Billz (my sister) and I are in the mood to redecorate our place, and we saw so much stuff. Bedford Galleries is always filled with crystal bowls, glassware and dish sets, chandeliers, lamps and great furniture. I just love vintage and thrift stores. They’re filled with one of a kind items and tons of inspiration. Plus,  you can haggle. And over the years I’ve gotten pretty good at it. Everything’s negotiable!

We kept trekking and ran into a flea market on Fulton St. This older gent was selling some cute sunglasses…Billz modeling a pair.
