Robyn's Piece, The Revival of Vintage, Briarwood Flea Market and More!

I recently painted a china cabinet/pie safe piece for Robyn and she did a sweet post on it today, here is a link...

Here are a few pics I have at Serendipity.

I have been so busy lately I have not been blogging regularly but here is where you can find The French Flea:

Greystone Antiques (painted and distressed furniture and home decor)
Serendipity at Brook Highland Plaza (picture frames and gift items)
Spoonful of Sugar at PharmSouth Pharmacy at Mt. Laurel (picture frames and crosses)
For Home in Homewood (picture frames and crosses)
The Blu Building in Alabaster (picture frames, crosses, wall hangings)

I have had such a hard time finding furniture lately so my booth at Greystone looks pretty sparse but maybe some good estate sales will start popping up!

I had an email through Etsy yesterday asking me about being a vendor at an event in Atlanta that sounds wonderful. Here is some info from the website,

Smack dab in the center of Atlanta sits The Goat Farm Arts Center- Home to The Revival’s Vintage "Pop-Up" Marketplace. The market hosts national, regional, and local vintage sellers, designers, and experts congregating together to bring curated vintage wares and “do-it-yourself” skills to worshippers of all that is vintage.

Known for its artist studios and creative minds, the Goat Farm is the perfect location for the revival of vintage - it resides in a mid-Victorian industrial site with 12 acres of grounds and 12 turn of the century brick structures. Its non-traditional rustic auditoriums will hold 120+ vintage vendors, expert-taught seminars, live music, and vintage-inspired food that will make you say “Hallelujah!.”

I also got an email today on the 4th Annual Briarwood Flea Market. I did it last year and there was a great crowd so if you are interested in attending or being a vendor, here is some info:


members and non-members are invited to shop the Flea Market
where Sellers and Shoppers converge for two great days
of fun and bargain hunting!

Friday, July 27 (Noon – 6 p.m.)
Saturday, july 28 (8 am – 2 p.m.).

(Cash only, please. No bills over $50.)


The indoor/outdoor market, with over 80 vendors, will take
place in the church gym, lunchroom and surrounding outside areas.
Briarwood PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH is located at I-459 and Acton Rd.,
up the hill from McDonald’s. Once on campus, signs will direct you
to the Flea Market.
