Hibernating URN

So waking up to a blanket of white snow was most magnificent. Oh the joys of winter! One of our favorite finds this last season was this retro URN. With a fresh spray of apple green paint, it became a vision at Christmas, filled with pine cones and wrapped in lights. Today adorned in snow, it patiently awaits its springtime fate. So as we delight in the anticipation of spring, so does our urn. Stay tuned for its re-newed-purpose. Have a fabulous winter day and stay warm with a favorite of ours "Starbucks salted caramel cocoa".

A Shout Out From a Customer...

Last fall, we had a really great customer that posted on her blog about our Flea Market. She has a great eye for detail and provided some pictures of some of the items that we featured at the sale she attended. (Since we are still in the process of developing this blog, we plan to post some photos of past sales as well.)
Thanks for the post and support Leanne. We hope to see you at our upcoming sales!

Who We Are and What We Do...

Our Upscale Flea Markets are always chock full of vintage finds, antiques, painted furniture, home decor, handmade items, homemade treats and lots of other fun stuff for sale at fantastic, bargain seeker prices!! And, as an added bonus, we are doing our part by promoting re-cycling, up-cycling and re-purposing of items that might otherwise end up in the landfills.

With 6 sales under our belt so far, each one more successful than the last, we are looking with great anticipation to the 2011 Flea season commencing in late April/early May. Warning: We are committed to bring you things that will cause you to get a bit giddy and exclaim (as has been done at past sales), “THAT IS TO DIE FOR!!” Disclaimer: of course we take that as the utmost compliment and don’t take the declaration in the literal sense.

Best of all, we had so much fun hosting the sales, renewing old friendships and forging new ones.

This blog is evolving and will be a way to keep our loyal customers and those that are not-yet-customers-but-will-soon-be customers up to date on the comings and goings of our Upscale Flea Market and share ideas with each other. We invite you to come back often to see what we have been up to and what we have planned.

In the meantime, make it a great day!
