Some New Pieces - Pick Your Paint Color!

I'm posting a few pictures of items in the shop today - as you can see, a couple of pieces of furniture are works in progress so if you see anything you are interested in, please let me know and you can choose how you wanted it painted! (The chest is by Stanley Furniture and priced at $85.00, the french provencial nightstand is $32.00 and the other french provencial table with silver tray on top is missing the top so you would need to have glass, marble or wood cut to fit but it's only $19.00.)

Dia's House

Today I'm posting some pictures from the house of Dia David. She came into the shop this week looking for some frenchy, shabby chic items for her home and sent some pics of the accessories after she displayed them in her beautiful home. For sending in the pics, she will receive $10.00 in in-store credit! I also found out that she is a personal trainer and I have talked to her about having a "Get Fit at the Flea" class in the back of my shop so if it works out, details will follow!

Here is a pic of a buffet in the shop today. I think it is promised to a customer but if not I will list it with a price. (It still needs another coat of paint and distressing but I think it's going to be very cute.) Several customers have been looking for buffets so I will try to keep finding some to put in shop...

Ava's Room

I have really enjoyed working with families this summer to help furnish some college apartments and rooms. One very sweet mom and daughter are Beth and Ava. They have bought many pieces for Ava's apartment at Auburn and here are some adorable pics of her bedroom. Mom Beth said that everything in the pics is from The French Flea except for the bed so thank ya'll so much! For sending in the pictures, they will receive $10.00 in-store credit!
