This has been a busy week at Paris Flea Market Livermore, California! We celebrated Susan’s birthday, I taught a class on how to use Pinterest to drive traffic to our shop, and our big grand opening for the new part of the store, the French Quarter, will be February 5-8. I’ll be working in the French Quarter on Thursday evening. I’m hoping to get there a little early to take some pictures of the new part so come back next week (or follow Our Shop board on Pinterest).
There’s a lot of love going on in the shop already. Here’s a few handmade hearts on my shelf. They’re sitting on a jewelry box I painted with CeCe Caldwell’s Thomasville Teal, one of my all-time favorite paint colors!
This next photo is a little dark but I tried to show you one of the ways I add some height into my little space. I try to stack cake plates and pillar candle sticks. They’re all for sale, too, so sometimes my space looks completely different on Sunday than it did Thursday night!
This is a wooden divided wine crate that I’ve used before at the Treasure Island Flea. I tacked some jute string along the front and hang my earrings from it. You can see it much better in a photo on this blog entry from the May flea market.
These key rings are a new item this month. Jordann wanted a key ring with a tassel and I couldn’t buy just one so now I have a BUNCH! They’re all one of a kind so not in the Etsy shop… but the tractor key ring is! It has a hand-stamped tag that says “MY OTHER CAR IS A TRACTOR“. I have a tutorial to show how I made this display, too. Hopefully it will be up in a few weeks.
So here’s my whole shelf… what do you think? I think I need something on the wall behind it!
Please feel free to pin any of my images you like. And follow my Flea Market Design Pinterest board.
