Flea Market Inspired Vibe…
A day at the Pike Place Market isn’t complete without a visit to Watson Kennedy. An antique store, nestled within the Inn at the Market’s courtyard. Here you will find an astonishing range of memoirs collected by owner Ted Watson on his sojourns to France and England. Closer to home, there are articles from New York, San Francisco and New Orleans too. You can pamper yourself with bath products and aroma candles from here.
Flea market inspired vibe…just the coolest.
Oooh and Aaaah…for the antiques and vintage products from music sheets to playing cards….
A love for French and English combined…
Such a beautiful display of gift giving ideas…
It was so fun to browse, okay I might of done a little more than browse…smile.
The store was so very hip and eclectic style, who couldn’t love it here?
So if you are ever in the need of a gift for the person who has everything…give Watson and Kennedy a try.
Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:
Don’t be afraid to bump up your ISO when necessary.
I had to bump it up to 200 – 400 ISO in these images.
Photographers are so leery of noise…but if you have the shutter speed set accordingly, you will still get a great image.
A noisy photo is better than a blurry one.
Does the vintage nostalgia look appeal to YOU?
Remembering our men and women who died while serving in the armed forces for our country today and very thankful for them.
Have a great day everyone!!
I honestly love shooting with a higher ISo quite often. The photos are softer.
want to thank you for dropping over and leaving that sweet comment, laurie! ♥ had to visit this post and tell you that i love the ‘vintage nostalgia’ look! such wondeful images to use it on, too! really love the old cards. oh, i so enjoy browsing antique stores, and the ‘hip’ and ‘eclectic’ shops here in indy! i’m just glad they’re still around! thanks for this ‘tip of the day’, too … i do tend to have trouble with ‘noise’, and hope i’ll finally get a handle on how to reduce it completely, but as you said, a noisy image is better than a blurry one! hope you have a wonderful week! 🙂
I absolutely love browsing these types of venues. What fun!
Inspiring photos. Makes me want to grab my camera.
Vintage .. oh don’t Laurie … I’ll need to rush out to a flea market before you say Jack Robinson 😉
Cool photos. oh now I have to try out different iso settings …
Love me some vintage too. And that’s a great tip about ISO. Now that I have a full frame camera, I do bump it up and find little noise. And I can get rid of the dreaded blur!
I love the tones and the nostalgic feel of these, definitely! Great photos.
I think I would love this store – very lovely images!
I just love your shoTs!
What a cool place, I especially love the first photo, what did you come home with?
well I wanted everything…but I did show some restraint. my favorite thing I came home with is a new book to put on the guest bedroom nightstand.
Great photos! Love the look on the photo of the playing cards!
These are awesome, Laurie! Love the vintage treatment.
Ted has an interesting place!
Great vintage cards and the photographs of them.
I love browsing at flea markets.
I visited the old Pike Street Market in the mid sixties (I was about 16). I saw a pair of used shoes offered for a quarter in a storefront window near the market, and the whole place was a collection of little shops and tables piled high with hippie-made arts and crafts, etc. It was awesome then as I’m sure it is awesome now, in a gentrified way, of course.
Now wouldn’t that be a fun place to spend some time?!
I love places like this
Love these shots – especially the first one!
I like that your first photo contains peace and wish and hope; such lovely sentiments for Memorial Day.
I definitely love vintage things! I love a anything sweetly classic!
Vintage is my favorite!
terrific shots! I like the stones!
I too love vintage – and i like the way you processed in sepia and white. So clear and precise too!
Oh that looks like my kinda store…love all those vintage treasures.
I would love to go browsing there.
Great place!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
These are great shots! Quite inspiring actually…
I love antique stores and flea markets. Great finds and I love the way you’ve composed these shots.
Oh yes & Vintage loves me 😀 Cute place, what couldn’t you resist? Any treasure go home with you?
It would be definitely hard to go into a store like this and NOT purchase something! I would have a field day!
It’s beautiful! I especially like the photo with the playing cards. All sorts of vintage things appelas to me. (well, not all, but many)
Sometime such a day gives a new form of inspiration, which obviously you found. Yes, these work well in vintage.
Looks like a wonderful store. And yes I love the vintage effect!
Love the feel in these! Great shots!
Very nice. Seems like a great place to browse around. I am wondering the store does not mind you taking pictures?
No they didn’t mind at all. He was one of the nicest people I have ever met.
Yes! I love vintage. And, thank you for the types I have sooooo much to learn.
