The Fancy Flea

 The Fancy Flea was the place to be this past Saturday.  Voted one of the 10 best Flea Markets in the country,  Saturday's show quite possibly moved that number up a bit with such a great turn out of fabulous vendors representing some of Florida's outstanding shops as well as some very creative people. that made this Flea Market a wonderful show.
The first picture represents the Girls of Summer House. (Found on FB)
Summer House Marketplace is located in Tampa. (Found on FB)
From fabulous shell mirrors to wonderful vintage furniture, this shop is a favorite in Tampa.
It's a perfect day trip with so many great shops, and restaurants in the area, but bring a truck, or more than likely you will need to return to pick up  something fabulous!
 Another great vendor at the Flea was Chic to Antique.
This booth was packed all day long with happy shoppers finding just the right little something, something.
 Shelly Price of Sweet Pea Home was there.  Shelley is well known from Florida to Texas for her wonderful vintage finds as she has been setting up for years at Marburger Farms in Texas, for the great Flea Market week held there twice a year.  She is currently set up in a new shop called Adjectives in Altamonte Springs,  FL.
 The Fancy Flea is held two times a year, April and November.  The streets are filled with happy shoppers.
 It's a smorgasbord of painted furniture so bring the truck!
It was a wonderland of lace and boots and bling,
and some of the cutest ideas for garland I have ever seen.
 Doors and windows and planters, oh my....bring the truck!
 Where Shabby is Chic and Chic can be Shabby and some girls are Chic and Shabby.

 Kimberly Ryan of Paris Rags was there.
Her booth is filled with eye candy and romantic fashions that will make any girly girl swoon.
 Even her tent top is a work of art.  And speaking of works of art.  This lady paints the most beautiful roses!  As well as being known for her romantic style clothing designs she is a talented artist.   Find her on Etsy too!



 House of Envy was there, another over the top shop located in St. Cloud, Florida.


 This amazing tent was slammed with people.  They are Tossed and Found.  Bling...bling!  Bits and bobs of bliss!

 Lori from Robyn Story Designs in Tampa sharing the wonders of Chalk Paint.   Robyn Story is our go to girl for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint which is by the way a fabulous product.  Robyn's store is fabulous and a must stop shop for any of you out of towners.   She also has wonderful how to classes.   Check her out!    Bring a truck!
 Here are a couple of chalk paint finished products by a Summer House Girl!
 Janice, Shabby Shells had some amazing mirrors. ( One of the Girls of Summer House.)  Michelle, another Girl was set up around the corner but by the time I got there she was almost sold out.
Amazing!  But that says something about those Girls!
 Just a little info on the Fancy Flea.
Get your calendar out and mark the number to call to find out when the next one is in November!
People will be coming from everywhere!
Bring a truck!
 Debbie Mangual, owner of Vintage Soul in St. Cloud was there.  She had a beautiful people filled tent!
Currently gracing the pages of Romantic Homes Magazine, Debbie's touch on a space is magical!  Come to my house Debbie,  please come to my house!!





 The Rusty Gate..located in Clermont FL in Tres Chic Boutique.

 It's such a wonderful thing, to meet such talented people. Each vendor inspired by another vendor.  Can you just feel the creative juices flowing?   Wonder what Shelley bought?   Guess you will just have to visit her space at Adjectives or ask Lori from Robyn Story Designs.

 So if pictures like this make your heart skip a beat,  then you will find your bliss at the Fancy Flea.
However, this experience can only be enjoyed to the fullest if you arrive in an empty truck because you will certainly have it filled up when you leave.
So here are a couple of  Fancy Flee tips.
DON'T MISS THE NEXT ONE
 AND BRING A TRUCK!!!!!

Oh I just wish I would be able to visit one of those fleas one day. But I guess it would be impossible for me to go home again with all the things I'd bought, lol.
Have a nice day.
