Walking into Love Saves the Day in New Hope, PA is like walking back in time, not only to eras ranging from the late 1800s to early 1980s, but also into my bedroom when I was in fifth grade. What my father would call a pigsty, but really just a cluttered mess of clothes, toys, and memorabilia.

The two-story emporium of vintage items, mainly clothes, showcases merchandise draped from the ceiling, posted on the walls, and folded in trunks on the floor amongst antique furniture and arcade games. While the clutter may overwhelm some visitors, there is a unique sense of organization to co-owner Leslie Herson’s madness.

Guy Trebay recently wrote “Scavengers on the Urban Savannah” for The New York Times. The article is about the massive market that features 170 vendors. My favorite is former Lane Bryant retail associate’s, Glenn Marla, comments on plus size vintage.

The article has a lot of fun interactive components and the market looks awesome. Brooklyn Flea just opened this April. It is the largest flea market in New York City and is open every Sunday a block away from Dekalb Avenue’s resturant row.
