What a WONDERFUL time we had at our 1st of MANY Fancy Flea Markets...
thank you all for coming out!
This is my mom, June - "the master junker, crafter, original up-cycler (before it was cool) and woman on the hunt for an antique" (on the right holding a basket) visiting with our friend, Carol.
This is my dad, Ron...he is the master body shop dude. He has rebuilt cars and painted them...restoring hem to beautiful cars as long as I can remember. Make no mistake... he is also a junker...he can find a "find" anywhere. My dad just told me about his fabulous estate sale find today...amazing find!
My parents will be married 40 YEARS this July...THAT, my friends is an accomplishment!
They have built a successful towing and body shop business, raised myself and my sister...
and would do anything for anybody. I have been BEYOND BLESSED with FABULOUS parents!
That is my sister, Jill...on the left..."Jillybean!" It is kind of funny to call her "Jillybean" today when she is almost 29, married and a respected Labor & Delivery nurse. Jillybean still fits!
This sweet little sales girl is my Natalie....our oldest girl of two...she is just the sweetest!
My dad built her this sweet little cart to sell juices, brownies and our Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars!
That entrepreneurial spirit is in her blood!!
If she can just keep her little sister Lauren, out of the profits!
There's "Momo!" That is what my girls call my mom..."Momo."
Thanks Momo for opening up your shop for a FABULOUS 1st Fancy Flea Market!!!
Aren't these trunks cool? That chandelier is one of my mom's fun finds!
My mom painted this chair with a mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...and covered it in a beautiful fabric.
(That is my dad's boat in the background.) Oh, we have a story about the FIRST time he took us all out in after he finished it. We all teased him that we were going to SINK!!! We lived...
This is one of my dad's pallet creations...he makes potting benches, wine racks, decorative boxes,
chalkboards...you name it, he can make it!
I LOVE this hutch that my sister redid...almost brought it home with me!
More of our goods...my dad's tractor seat on a milk can. This snuck out of here before I even saw it...or it would have come home with me FOR SURE! Special order for dad!
Oh...that sneaky Lauren! Little sister trying to swipe a PB & J bar again!
That is my sister's husband, Tomas next to Natalie. We call him "Uncle Mas."
There is my mom, June on the left with my little one Lauren. Our dear family friend, Johnnie with her grandson Cash is on the right. Johnnie has two sons, Cameron and Casey who I grew up with!
And Lauren strikes again! Look at those brownies my sister made...mmmmmm!
Lovin' this desk my sister painted...oh, and that pair of vintage lamps are so cool!
That is my turquoise funky chair on right.
This sweet farmhouse pedestal set was purchase by a sweet, young girl. This young lady is in law school and is waiting to move into her first home! She said it was just what she was looking for...
I LOVE stories like that!
We had such a WONDERFUL day...full of fun, family and friends - new and old! My mom, dad, sister and I will DEFINITELY be doing this again in the fall for sure! We are thinking about an October date...I will keep you posted for sure!
I hope you all have a great week...I am off to prepare for Flair on the Farm in Salinas this Saturday!
Love & Junk~
