Oh Fleas, how I love thee...

It's Sunday morning and the alarm goes off at 4:30 am.  It's so warm under my blankets and so cold outside. I have to get up but I milk it for at least another 5-10 minutes.  Then, it's time to REALLY get out of bed and get ready to leave for the flea market.

Once I get to the market, it all comes back to me. I remember how much I love them. I love working them and shopping them. As long as the weather is cooperating, the day passes quickly as you display your treasures, laugh with friends, and reconnect with old acquaintances.

Displaying, laughing, and reconnecting were the way I spent both Flea days this month at Irvine and Rosebowl . Here is a glimpse at both market days...



New seaside pillows!

Easter egg hunt, anyone?

Lots of charms. Pick your favorite.


My friend Juanita came down from Ventura for the Irvine show. She had never been to Irvine. She stayed at my house overnight and we stayed up way to late laughing and gabbing. We spent all day Sunday laughing...and thinking back, it was mosly at each other (and at my neighbor, Art)!


I reconnected with my Mary E. at the Irvine show.  Mary used to buy tons of pillows from my former business partner and I when she worked for an interior design company that did model homes.  Now she sells t-shirts and accessories for the animal lover population. She wants me to do a line of charms for her business.  We're meeting for lunch to discuss!

Yes, this Sunday the alarm will go off telling me it's time to get up and get ready to leave for the Long Beach Vets Flea Market, (space G-228, white section).  I will not want to get up. But I will. And at the end of the day, I will so glad I did.

Please stop by and visit as I  display, laugh, and reconnect the day away.

Which dog is guilty?

My friend Lynda Wulf sent me this link this morning and I'm still laughing.

I promise it's worth the 30 seconds to watch!

Does anyone else see the irony in this video and Lynda's last name...hummmm.
 Another laugh....this is a real ad from a 1950's magazine.  

Wow, 2 postings in one week!  
Have a dog gone great day! See you at IVC on Sunday.
