Discovery Green Flea : Coats

Discovery Green Flea is always a great time, but now that the weather is cooling down it makes it that much nicer!  But I have to say it’s not hard to enjoy your time outdoors when you are in one of the most beautiful places in the city, Discovery Green!

This ‘Flea’ makes #4 for the Discovery Green Fleaseries and it is really starting to grow, adding new shops each time. We are very excited to see the collection of vintage, recycled and handmade items expanding.
From the 7 Closets Vintage shop we were glad to see the vintage coats & jackets getting the love they deserve! It’s sometimes harder for us in the south to enjoy a great jacket but when the temperature starts to drop our instincts kick in and guide us on the search for the perfect outerwear. From peacoats to trench coats, vintage coats are one of the most exciting vintage pieces to shop. More often than not  coats were a larger investment for their previous owner and were treated with care leaving us, the vintage shopper, with a pieces that are in great condition.
Materials. Vintage coats are made of great textiles : wool, suede, cashmere, fur and amazing knits. Textiles you won’t normally get the chance to wear! Check out some of the vintage coats that got new homes at Discovery Green Flea this weekend which include an vintage toffee colored boho suede jacket, vintage English plaid Pendelton wool riding coat and a multi-colored rabbit fur coat with brass buttons.

We were so glad to meet so many amazing customers at this flea and were happy to get the chance visit with some of our returning customers. We hope you’ll all continue to come and visit us at the Discovery Green Flea. We also plan to add some additional shows to our schedule in 2012 so if you haven’t already, make sure to follow us on Facebook so you’ll know where we will be!
