thank goodness

A rumor is now reality.  For months now I have been hearing all sorts of rumors that Matthew Mead and Ki Nassauer were teaming up to produce a new magazine.  In the editorial world we have seen a lot of magazines disappear so the news that this duo were merging their creative minds made me giddy.  Not to mention I would love to contribute in any way possible (portfolio on its way soon Ki & Matthew).  Flea Market Style will be a newsstand magazine and hopefully if it is successful it will turn into a subscription based publication.  The blog should be up by the end of August and the magazine will be released early spring of 2010.  YEAH!

confessions of a shopaholic

I have for years talked myself into purchases (projects) thinking I would have time to get to them or I could make something with them. My sewing days seem to be behind me, and forget reupholstering things myself. Did you say that would look good painted or turned into a mirror.... Can you see where I am going with this post? I love to shop. I find some really cool treasures and yes I am attracted to the "potential" in many objects. For that reason the basement (2,000 sq. ft.) in the store is full of the aforementioned objects. Oh, and I can't forget my obsession with props either (many of which will be available for the first time). And there is the random orphan from the sales floor too. So it is with great pleasure that I invite each and every one of you to attend my first BASEMENT SALE in the hopes that you will relieve me of some of these treasures. * I hope the thought of it conjures up a Filene's Basement sale-like frenzy. See you next Friday and Saturday! Feel free to call the shop if you have any questions.

JULY 17 & 18
10:00 to 6:00

* special note: they are not all projects, a lot of the items are perfectly fit for use immediately
