Dekalb MarketPosted: 07/21/2012
B and I rode our bikes over to Dekalb Market today. The weather has cooled a bit and I’m getting used to riding my single-speed (no more jello legs). I know I need to stop comparing NY to SF, but the Dekalb market is a larger version of the Proxy Project in Hayes Valley. It’s pretty cool and I love the design sensibilities of a “mall” out of old shipping containers. Salvaged materials, an urban farm, artisanal foods, an Etsy pop-up with a vintage tool shop and you’ve got yourself a thriving hipster mecca. We overheard some dude with an epic beard lamenting the presence of a jump-house and screaming kids–> “there should be an adults only hour or something if they’re going to make this cool”. Like B says, at least they’re in a cage. I really wanted to buy a bike basket/Bambi holder from this shop (seriously cute stuff), but alas, the weight limit is 12lbs. Bambi is a fatty.
I have been on the search for a great pair of denim shorts for a while. Granted, I need another pair of shorts like I need a hole in my head, but I want a good fit with a high waist to offset my freakish long torso/short appendages proportions. These fit the bill, and they’re not ridiculously expensive. Normally BDG stuff is made for stick-like teenage girls and aren’t made to fit my birthing hips. Surprisingly enough though, these do.
