    I love the idea that you can buy things as a set or hunt for perfect pieces and make your own collection. Good luck at the flea!

    I agree. The Vintage Travel Flask Set is gorgeous.

    I’ve never thought much about having a specified bar “area” (or even cart) in my house, but now I’m hooked. These are SO BEAUTIFUL (especially the first image)! Also it’s a great excuse to buy all the basics for a mini bar….I’m into this idea. Flea market next weekend!
