I spoke with Hell's Kitchen Flea Market vendor "M Rock" this past [cold!] weekend at the market during a special photo shoot taking place there, and he remarked on how modern--that is, mid-20th-century and later...mainly the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, I assume--is very popular with his customers. About the once-typical antiques--mostly 19th-century stuff--he said that not only is such inventory just "not coming out of people's houses anymore [in order to be sold,]" but if it did, "nobody would want it anyway." Let's face it, as a general rule, young professionals and design-conscious renters (and owners) in New York City are not exactly pining to fill their pads with the Victoriana coveted by their grandmothers. Though this is just my subjective opinion, it seems to me that even Deco items (1920's and '30's mostly) aren't circulating as widely as they used to. Modernist is certainly the direction things are going.

Fantastic! And mostly from street finds and fleas. Amazing. The "green"/sustainability dimension that aspects of the design demonstrated are worth noting, too. When found and flea purchases are the sources for so much of the design, it's classic re-use &/or re-purposing of manufactured items--good for the Earth, good for the pocket book.
