Flea Off Market Louisville, Ky.


 I've written about my Flea Off Market experiences here and here. If you're a reader of my blog, you probably know how much I live for flea markets, ethnic markets, and everything quirky and vintage. I have such an eclectic taste, its hard to just pin point it to just one thing. I *love* colorful vibrant things (think Mexican/Indian type textiles, although I really don't decorate with it.). I also love looking through vintage pieces (Old Avon and quirky bottles), but I still have yet to figure out how to display it without looking cluttered in my home. I'll have to invite Martha Stewart out to lunch one day :P Still, it doesn't deter me from purchasing items that I find unique, useful, or have some sort of history to it. 

After running some errands, I took a stroll through the market. It was such a beautiful, *gorgeous* day out, the weather couldn't have been better. It felt great getting out of the home (is it just me, or does it feel like this winter just dragged on forever?).

As soon as I entered the market, I could hear live music, and saw tons of people shopping and eating.


 As much as I wanted to eat first (foodie problems..), I decided to make my rounds through the aisles to do a little shopping. I was so into my shopping, that I completely spaced out and didn't take many pictures (oops.). *But* I did come across this little booth (The Almond Creamery), that had some adorable milk bottles that caught my attention. She had such a cute set up! Once I realized it was Almond Milk, I'll be honest, I was a little skeptical. I've tried store bought almond milk before, and absolutely hated it. It tasted flat, nothing like milk (which I love!), and couldn't bring myself to finish the container. I read through the labels she had, and saw "Lavender" flavored. The foodie in me kicked in, and I had to taste it... I'm so glad I did, because it was delicious. It was Lavender with Turmeric (which surprisingly went very well together), it tasted sweet, floral, with just a hint of spice. You can definitely taste the Turmeric, but it was a great harmony in mouth. I craved it the next morning, and was very sad when I finished the last drop.

I wish I would've taken a picture of the booth (they had an awesome collection of gemstones, both loose and with fittings), but I did purchase a very pretty Moon Stone Pendant for only $10.00. I paired this with a silver necklace that I purchased, at another flea market I visited in Owensboro for my brother's wedding. I love it!


 I stopped at "Pho Sho" for their Banh Xeo. This. Stuff. Was. Delicious. I have never had Vietnamese food that was as flavorful as this. The chef did an amazing job with the spices and flavors, I need to figure out if they have a food truck somewhere!


I'm so hungry writing this post, I hope they are at the next Flea Off Market (and by that time maybe I'll give myself a little cheat day haha.)

Have you been to the Flea Off Market Before?
