In the movies, the hero never runs pell-mell through a flea market.
It’s always a bazaar. Some foreign and dusty bartertown chockablock with coiled rope baskets, chiffon saris and steamer trunks.
Bringing that exotic bric-a-brac to you online: Project Bly, just launched.
Named after a turn-of-the-century journalist who famously traveled the globe with little more than a pencil, paper and cold cream, Project Bly sells treasures found in bustling metropolises around the globe.
Their first port-of-call: Mumbai, with its lattice frames, vintage Bollywood posters, brass measuring cups and more.
They also produce gorgeous original prints taken at each city of port.
Coming later this month: a collection from La Paz, including intricately carved wooden colonial stirrups (“estribos”), embossed vintage leather saddles, silver alloy/pewter cups, vintage textiles and striped rugs.
