I’ve been checking out local flea markets to get a sense of how this whole thing works from a seller’s perspective, which is totally foreign to me. I still have stuff from flea markets I bought when I was in my teens but have never been a seller. All that will change on December 15, 2013, when Dustin and I will have our own stall at the Long Beach Antique Market, a combined AGO/non-secateur pop-up shop. Dustin wants to change his garden, so expect lots of his concrete orbs and buddha heads, plus new crete work. And plants, of course. Meanwhile, the flea market research is getting expensive, because I can’t stop bringing home more stuff, which is why I needed to sell at flea markets in the first place. I found these pots at the Downtown Flea, which meets every fourth Sunday, from a vendor whose card I’ve since lost, a very nice invertebrate biologist who apparently has an amazing garden that he’s promised I can visit. (I bought only one, the green with the rosette design.) I’m hoping he might stumble onto this post and leave his name and address.
This Sunday, November 10, 2013, I’ll be checking out one of the biggest in Los Angeles, if not the country, the Rose Bowl Flea Market, and hoping to draw upon previously untapped reserves of self-control.
I just recently heard about the LB flea market from a friend. I’ll see if I can make it by. The holiday period always presents challenges…
Oh Denise, How I’d love to attend your December 15th flea market debut! Between you and Dustin, I bet there’ll be an amazing array of lust worthy objects!
Oh the torture, to imagine what treasures will be available at your booth and not be able to be there!
Any event creating a gathering of more than about 10 people terrifies me. How do you bear that? Sounds like a lot of cool stuff, tho.
@Kris, I’m hoping the holiday also presents shoppers!
@Peter & Loree, I’d like nothing better than to see you guys there.
@Hoov, you did fine in SF — better than me in fact!
I love that green pot, and you put the perfect plant in it. Hope you found some good stuff this time around at the flea market too.
