The French Flea Market and Artisan Fair

Happy Monday!

The weekend was a big  grey blur !
The weather is so funky!
Rainy and downright dreary!

I try to think of this as a blessing though!
For I am up to my knees in paperwork as we prepare for

The Third Annual French Flea Market and Artisan Fair!

This year it will be held July 8 and 9....(a Friday and Saturday)

We hold the event rain or shine in the parking lot of Horton's of Tipton.
For the first time, we are have made space available to several vendors inside!
This will allow merchants who have amazing products that don't do well outdoors to participate at a different level!

Adding several new faces to our wonderful family of vendors and friends!

Returning once again is my dear friend...Rebecca Ersfeld

Many, many others will be returning and I will share more on that once they are confirmed.

As Creative Director for Horton's of Tipton, it is my job to organize this event!
I am currently putting the finishing touches on the information packets that will go out this week!
Since it is so vital to have the most amazing vendors...We have to hand select each one.

I am still going through emails and photographs on possible new merchants.
Speaking of which...because of the new spaces added...we still have a few spaces left.
Would you like to be a participant?
You still have a little bit of time...all you need to do is contact me:
