Flea Market Finds

Hi guys! Its been a while since I last did a blog post, right? Well everything is going good for me, just been really busy working fulltime and doing my side business which is my online shop as well as flea marketing. I'm really happy that I got back into this because a few years ago I started and somehow just stopped...so it feels really awesome to have my hobby that brings me some extra cash as well as a sense of creative freedom! Thank you for everyone who has ever bought something from me, supported my flea markets, like my pics on instagram or has been a follower of this blog, it's all very special to me, so thank you.
 
I'm super excited to announce I will be at the Mercantile flea market Saturday Oct 1st!
 I had taken a couple months off to start collecting again and I have an amazing little spread for ya'll!
 
One of my favorite things to do once I collect merchandise to sell is have a little photo shoot to bring it all together and tell a story. The most recent round up of treasures seems to have a theme...lots of wicker, bold colors like fuchsia as well as textures and prints!  
 
A lot of people ask where I find my items that I sell! Well, I find my items all over the place from thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, consignment, and from my own collection of vintage apparel and d├ęcor. If I don't love it, I don't want it in my collection...I've become more picky over what I take into my collection as its a representation of me.
 
So now that you know a little about my process of how I pick items and have fun photographing them and selling them, take a look at what I have to bring to the next Mercantile Flea Market on Saturday October 1st!
 
 
Here is a little spread of what I will have for sale at the market, also most items are listen on my online shop for sale as well. Doggy not included!

Mercantile Market May 7th

Some of you may, or may not know that I have taken up a hobby of selling at Flea Markets! I have done two so far this year at the Mercantile Market in Downtown Fullerton, they're super fun and rewarding. I put lots of thought into what I'm doing because this is after all an expression of myself. There is a ton of behind the scenes work that goes into planning for these shows, I have to go hunting for pieces I know my customers will love and I try my best to listen to what you want and find it!

I also have an online store where I sell mostly apparel for baby, kids & adult so please check it out!


Here is my booth at the Mercantile Market this past May! This time around I brought my vintage clothing collection as well as second hand kids wear! Such a hit, if you love unique bright and fun clothing I have it! 
We sell succulents in vintage mugs and the're going for amazing prices! They make great gifts! Also so many people wanted to buy my display, its not for sale, but …

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day!

A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…
