Over 6 months ago, I was pouring over the summer issue of Flea Market style magazine. Or maybe I was on their blog. Either way, I was soaking in all the great ideas when I came across an invite for readers to contact the magazine about a favorite city for shopping, of course, in flea market flair. I was busy prepping for the March Wildhare Flea Market, but couldn't ignore the thought of how exciting it would be to have the flea market, where I'm a vendor, listed in Flea Market style magazine, so write I did!
Flash forward to this past week. School started for my kiddo, which is always bittersweet; the end of summer, a little more painting time (aka; earlier bedtime), a little less hang-out time in the evenings, and yet another reminder of how fast he is growing! Kiddo soccer practice and out of town game, DIY at our home in demo stages, a garage full of projects awaiting re-gracing, a Lively Grace associated project on the horizon, and my fulfilling full time job.
If you follow me on facebook, you saw a picture of just that. I made it thru the first 6 or 7 pages as the soccer team warmed up, such a little treat!
Wednesday afternoon, I received a text from Linda, owner of Wildhare Flea Market "reading Flea Market-wow-you go girl!" and a thanks about mentioning her flea market. The encouragement was great, but I wasn't sure what had spurred it, even though Linda is just fun like that. On the way home, I was trying to clarify while stopping for a quick errand, but pictures were not loading very quickly on my phone, so I couldn't see what Linda said she was posting about. I made a beeline for the magazine the minute I crashed thru the door (just me, not the car).
And there it was! My name, blog, and a few lines quoted in Flea Market Style magazine!
"I'm in a magazine" I hollered to my boys (kiddo and husband) who were still wondering if it was me that had just entered the house, or a flash of lightning! Safe to say, I was thrilled! Facebook-updated, family-called, neighbors-flashed (whoa- just the magazine!).
A big thank you to my friends and followers for joining me in my giddiness! Some may think I was a little over the top in my response, but I think if it makes you happy- ENJOY! And truly, if you have not been to the events or businesses I listed, you are missing out on some great shopping and people in Pocatello! Did you spy the vintage ring in the photo? That was a Christmas gift from my sweet parents, purchased at Vain & Vintage! Her Alibi helped me secure a set of lockers, check the whole story and photos here . Pick up a copy of Flea Market Style Magazine, as always, it is full of fantastic ideas, photos, and creative people.Support a local business, pay them a visit, and don't forget to mark your calendar now for the Wildhare Flea Market, September 28, 29, and 30th!
Now, just like 6 months ago... I better get back to painting, cleaning, pricing, and picking for the upcoming Flea Market-Wildhare style, in Pocatello! I look forward to seeing you there!
