One part voyeurism two parts balls-to-the-wall visual hunt, flea markets aka “vintage antique markets” are an all out sensory explosion," says Crystal. The sounds of haggling ring through the air commingling with the gasps and squeals of marketers who’ve finally found that one piece they’ve been hunting for. Crystal says the best props are not found in stores! Her adventures at the Flea which she calls a living, pulsing event to reliably find rustic, vintage, well worn props from retro Tupperware containers of all shapes and sizes to specialized ceramic plates. Here’s a little peak of some of her favorite grabs of the day. More to come as they make their way to the shoot table! Check out her blog at http://crystalcartierphoto
