Vintage Metallic Red Leather Jacket
Normally, we would be in the height of flea market season right about now where one could score such things as this vintage red leather jacket.
This week would have been the Brimfield Flea Market Spring 2020 show and the main event that kicks off the flea market season for me and thousands of others. As with all events, it’s canceled. The July show is still on the calendar but we’ll see what happens.
I’ve been wearing this bright red, metallic jacket that I bought at Brimfield Flea last year from Bombshelly Vintage. I’ve forced myself to make a little bit of an effort getting dressed for the weekly grocery run as of late. The pop of red lifts my mood.
This jacket is from Wilsons Leather which is still around but for me, Wilsons Leather is forever reminiscent of my days hanging out at the mall with my friends in the ’80s sucking down Orange Julius’ and eating pretzels with squeezy cheese. Good times.
I can’t wait until we can all get back to participating in events like flea markets and trunk shows. In the meantime, I’ll just have to muse over past finds.
