What's on your porch?

One of the fun things about blogging is going to be able to show you the inventory coming with me to the next couple of shows.  Dustin, my son and business partner, likes to make your shopping experience a pleasurable one by creating vignettes, which we then try to recreate at the shows.  We start before each show and set up a "store" on my porch and add as we buy.  We move things around and photograph each time new things are added to see what they look like.  What we try to do is to come up with themes and then buy around each theme to make it fun..the thrill of the hunt! 
Our next show will be at the Rose Bowl on September 12, 2010 - again in space J-30!   Come by and see us!  If you are looking for something special or see something in a photo, don't hesitate to let us know.  This is just a sneak peak of our "porch store" as of today.
We are working on getting our website up and running, but in the meantime if you like something, email us and we can arrange to have it at a show or deliver it.   Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge.

Thank you!

Hi everyone - welcome to my blog!  I'm so excited to start blogging and sharing with all of you.  I would like to start out with a HUGE thank you to all of you that have given me the courage and inspiration to do this!  

I have been involved with flea markets and antiques, since I was 15 years old.  Getting up early and going to the market on the weekend is my passion!!  I have decided to sell what I love and that is French, architectural, and garden items - I've currently shown at the Rose Bowl and Santa Monica Flea Markets and have had great receptions at both venues.  Over the next few weeks I will be posting some of the items that I sell, including those that I will be taking to the flea markets, as well as pictures of items that I have already sold (hopefully pictures taken where they now live!). I love showing the whole composition, so if you see something interesting, please don't hesitate to leave me a message. If you find something that you might like, we can arrange a delivery, or I can bring it to the next show!  Thanks for checking out my blog....Kathee
