Flea Me!

The Dallas Flea is one month away, so it’s time to mark your calendars so nothing gets in the way of this shopping extravaganza!!



Come And Get It

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

4 Many of you have inquired about the items that were not sold at last week’s market, so I want you all to have a chance to purchase some of the things that were left over.  Some of my favorite things were not sold, so there’s still great treasures available!  Most of my large items were transferred to Random, located at 6465 Mockingbird Ln. #366 in Dallas.  This amazing Schwinn (I think it’s a 1061 model) is there just waiting for someone to bring it home and refurbish!  The frame is solid and just needs a couple of parts replaced.


Vintage 1961 Schwinn, $225, located at Random

The following items are available for cash and carry.  I live very close to downtown Dallas.  If you are interested in any of these items please contact me at to arrange for payment and pick-up.  Happy shopping!


Vintage house jack, $75.


2 Industrial metal chairs/stools, from a sewing factory, $65 each


4 Vintage L-square tools, $25 each…You could make a great frame with two of these!



Primitive FJ Townsend (late 1800′s) barb wire fence puller, $60


vintage funnel pendant light, wired and ready to hang, $60


Large gold and cream mid-century lamp and shade (shade is cracked in one place), $150


lamp detail…


Vintage Simplex clock with convex glass, removed from an operating room, it works!  $45


vintage wired light fixture, $65


2 vintage wooden mallets, $15 each

iron sectioned tray (for baking) – This would be great for storing jewelry! $20


3 vintage wire desk baskets (these are not stackable), $10 each

OK…we’ll start with these…I’ve got lots more!  Don’t forget to go see all of the goodies at Random!  All four of the Stash girls moved great items there and it’s all for sale!

If you need dimensions or additional information, please let me know!

Here’s a great post from Remodelista that will give you some inspiration on how to use vintage objects as art!


Snap To It

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

I’m a huge fan of using vintage clipboards to display collections.  Not long ago I found a journal at a flea market that an art teacher kept with miniature versions of her art projects that she taught in the classroom.  I think these pages would be the perfect collection to display on old clipboards.  I may be selling them as a complete set at Stash’s next sale at market (in June) since I don’t have enough wall space to display them in my home. (More info coming soon about that sale!)

Here’s a few examples of great art displays on clipboards…

Sometimes it’s hard to find old clipboards…I know, you can always find new ones,  but isn’t it more fun to find old ones for 25 cents at garage sales?…SO, I thought I would include a great DIY  that I think looks great!

diy chalkboard display


This clipboard actually doesn’t start with a clipboard at all!  It starts with a mini chalkboard which allows you to create a unique boarder around your art!  Here’s a quick video tutorial that anyone can do!  Even if you’re not the artsy-craftsy type…

I love following EZ from Creature Comforts blog, which is where these these DIY videos came from.  You’ll love following her too!

What’s your favorite way to display art collections?  Do you ever change out displays?  What’s your favorite way to do this?

Allow me to fill your weekend with spring markets!

Arts in Bloom McKinney Texas

First up… McKinney, TX brings their annual Arts in Bloom festival on Saturday, April 14th to their beautiful historic square. Over 150 artists will bring their works and line the streets!  While you’re there don’t miss my friends Kaci and Luann at Patina Green.  Kaci’s husband, Robert, will make a lunch for you at their in-store cafe that will have you asking for an extra serving to take home for dinner that night!  He’s an amazing chef!  Eating and shopping under the same roof!  What more can you ask for?

Another one of my favorite stores is Cotton Hearts.  I love Dorie, the owner, and every stitch of cool clothing that she brings in her uber cool clothing boutique!  She carries my favorite brands… Odd Molly,  Johnny Was and Farrah B jewelry…so I always get in trouble when I make it to McKinney to see her.  (That’s trouble in a good way!)  Don’t miss her vintage laundry baskets and shopping carts outside the shop door full of great deals!

After you spend your morning and early afternoon in McKinney, head over to the Bishop Arts District for more shopping!  The Urban Street Bazaar  that we all know and love is back…just as it began…a modern craft fair on the streets of the Bishop Arts District in North Oak Cliff!  This bazaar runs two days…Saturday and Sunday!

Don’t leave without stopping in to see Denise and Keith Manoy at Indigo 1745 for a little uptown fashion inspiration!  You’ll also be surrounded by several of the hottest restaurants in Dallas.  Take your pick!  You can’t go wrong!


Last, but CERTAINLY not least, is a very special market on Sunday that my Stash {vintage finds} girls and I are involved in over at Random at Hillside Village in Lakewood.  Owners, Mark and Shelly Hearne have planned a Fresh Picked Vintage Market.


We’ve unloaded a fresh crop of the season’s freshest vintage picks and they’re yours for the pickin’ from 2 to 5pm this Sunday afternoon!

Random Stash

Monday, February 20th, 2012

About a month ago, three good friends and I collaborated to show vintage finds and handmade goods at Dallas Market Center.  We were amazed at the positive response we received and how well our  individual finds came together to show so well!

We all wished that we had room in our homes for this amazing industrial table…

Stash is now a collaboration of Gloria Burson (A Modern Glo), Lisa Johnson (Cut and Paste), Dana Pugh (Tattered Style) and me!

One of the connections we made at market was with the wonderful owners of Random, Mark and Shelly Hearne.  Random is located in Hillside Village in Lakewood and filled with unique finds that you won’t see at other gift shops in Dallas. That’s why it was an easy answer when Mark and Shelly asked us to explore the opportunity to style their windows and display our finds in their store!

Gloria and Lisa did a “bang up” job on the windows while I was working and Dana was decorating her oldest child’s new pad in Austin!  Stop by soon to check out the unique find at Random!

While you’re there, stop by their neighbors, one of my favorite upscale consignment stores, Ditto Boutique!  You’ll find Chanel, Prada, Marc Jacobs and more!

I have some exciting news to share!  I will be participating in the latest temporary venue at Dallas Market Center this weekend with three of my most creative friends…Dana Pugh (Tattered Style), Gloria Burson (A Modern Glo) and Lisa Johnson (Cut and Paste).  This creative temp show is called Vintage Home FINDS and you don’t want to miss what we have in store for you!

We will be showing under the name of my vintage line’s name, Stash {vintage finds} and you’ll find us in the North Hall, along with other vintage dealers and Trailer Cakes in their vintage airstream!  We hope to provide interesting industrial pieces perfect for you to use as display in your store, as well as art to resale.  We’ll be available to help you come up with one-of-a-kind display and styling to give your space a facelift for the new year!   If a personal consultation is what you need, just ask, and we can arrange a visit to your retail space.

To make FINDS even more fun, all buyers are invited to participate in the “On The Road To FINDS Giveaway”!  Participants can pick up FINDS “Road Maps” at information booths, Red Rooms and registrations areas to start on their journey though the Temp Show. To qualify, buyers must visit three different FINDS locations (one must be FINDS in Market Hall) and drop their completed forms at a FINDS information booth for a chance to win great prizes. Highlights of prizes include: a Stella Scooter; Kindle Fire Full Color 7” Multi-touch Display with Wi-Fi; Bose QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones; Garmin 4.3” Portable GPS Navigator with lifetime map & traffic updates; Flip Video Camera; Sofia Cashmere Travel Set; Gift Certificate towards a luxury luggage set; Agloves, mobile device friendly gloves; and a “Build Your Own Road trip” including rental car, gas, restaurant gift certificates, and hotel expenses.

We can’t wait to share our finds with you!  Please share this exciting information with your friends that have a retail store and may be coming to market this weekend!  (Talk them into bringing you with them!)

We have your shopping bags ready to be packed with ‘Stash’!

Some of our favorite friends will be part of FINDS too!  Bud Royer is bringing his pies, candles and latest hit, Royers recipe card box!  Would this collection of over 100 of the cafe’s recipes make a nice addition to your inventory?

Our friends from Dwell With Dignity will camp out right next door to us!  They’ll have a space full of donated goods that will be professionally styled much like we saw at last year’s Thrift Studio!

Will we see you there?


Mix It Up

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Match-matchy is not for me…that’s why I’m putting these Bygones Flatware Bundles, from BHLDN, on my wish list!  They’re beautifully mismatched vintage silver-plated utensils gathered from flea markets and estate sales across the country.  These imperfect sets are perfection to me!

Each bundle, set of 10 pieces, $68

I also love mixing up my china.  I have a hard time passing up a pretty vintage plate at a garage sale or thrift store.  If you lack the time to search for these treasures, you can rely on Greenhouse Design Studio to pick the perfect unmatched set for you!

This sustainable company even offers a gift registry!  Brilliant!  Find all of Greenhouse Design Studio’s mismatched goods here.

Star Light, Star Bright

These vintage inspired star light fixtures are as close as you’ll get to the real deal!

christmas holiday star light

Michael West, owner of West Vintage Trading Company, ages the metal used in these fixtures and God ages the wood…He calls this look “farm punk”…and I love it!

christmas star vintage inspired light

What in the world would I do with these, you ask?  I would hang them on my fence in my backyard, close to my deck…perfect for a Texas bbq!

Michael will even put your own custom spin on your star by painting the star or staining the wood to your specifications.  Aren’t they fun?

Would you paint your star a color?  Where would you put your shining star?
