How fabulous is Kate Payne, author of the Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking, a blog and now a book? Yesterday the thoroughly modern housemistress invited us to the Brooklyn Flea in Williamsburg (gorgeous, btw), handed us $25 and told us to buy the grooviest home item we could find. The only catch: four other bloggers would be doing the same, and our merch would be judged against theirs in an online contest on Kate’s blog. The purchases have been logged and photographed, Kate’s blog post is up, and it’s a tight race. These other gals found some good stuff. But we’re in this here Broketucky Derby to win it, people. We’re not going to ask for your vote. We’re going to BEG for it. For the love of G-d, PLEASE pick number 3. Vote in the comments. Thank you.

Of course, how do you know where to go, aside from anywhere that isn’t the Lower East Side, Williamsburg or […]
