back in the day (hip hop mix) plus new york scenes

Here’s a little hip hop playlist we put together for you. It’s mostly old school and I highly recommend having room to dance when you give it a spin.

The photos were shot at a flea market I stumbled on last month in New York.


I met some amazing characters there. The psychic art dealer turned tour guide and his antique dealing friend captivated me with their conversation about Paris in the ’20s, ouija boards, hiking in the Himalayan mountains, and black & white photography.

I hope they’re both there on my next visit.


Plus I found ice cream scoops and cast iron skillets I regret not buying


and found a typewriter like the broken one stored in our basement.


The sun is finally out so I’m off to stomp in the leaves and pick up some apples. Hope you find time do the same.

      Thanks Megan, glad you like it! I’m not sure why it won’t play. I’ll have to do some troubleshooting but in the mean time, if you go to the 8 tracks site, it should work…
