The Graham and Co. held their second weekend of the Phoenicia Flea over Columbus Day weekend and it was the perfect fall weekend retreat. Just a short 3 hour bus ride from New York’s Port Authority, Phoenicia is a town on the cusp. A hipster getaway, thanks to the stylish and very instagramable Graham and Co hotel, the crowd at the Phoenicia Flea looked like a scene right out of Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg, albeit a bit quieter. The Flea was a highly curated group of artisans, designers, and creatives including brands like Escape Brooklyn, Straw and Gold, Owlkill Studio, Local Creative, Thorneater and more.

Break out your fall wardrobe and spread some festive spirit throughout the month of October.
Stories of Marie Antoinette and her royal excess are far more easily imagined after a visit to the palace of Versailles. From the chandelier decked hall of mirrors to the cloud topped canopied bed and the maze-like grounds, each corner of Versailles brings a new form of luxury and opulence.
There are very extreme views when it comes to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Visitors delight in the iconic structure’s first appearance and many pilgrimages to France are based around it. However, like many tourist attractions, not all of the local Parisians are as fond of the Tour Eiffel.
Paris holds different meanings for everyone, but when I picture Paris, I see moody skies, elegant streets full of balconied views, bistro after bistro, and a quartet of old musicians, playing mournfully beautiful music. These memories are all based off of my first visit to Paris, over six years ago, and with each return visit I still see the city that way. Gloomy, beautiful, sad, and perfect.
