As my apartment FINALLY comes together, I’ve been on the hunt for unique pieces to put in out home. Rather than feature modern pieces, much of my home decor is an amalgamation of vintage items and handmade tokens from friends or craft shows. There is something so special about having an artisan’s touch on a product you own. Those pieces carry heart, dedication and hours spent to become a statement piece on your mantle or bookshelf. There is just an energy evoked from handmade goods that no store-bought, mass produced product could ever emulate.
I was SO thrilled to be approached by Flea Style to share details on their festival happening Nov. 19. Lemon Glaze was a vendor who I was recently introduced to and the shop owner Carmen is as sweet as ever. I fell in love with her sweet ceramics that featured cute bird motifs and Texas vibes.
Here are just a few of my favorite piece that Carmen has created:
I can’t wait to swing by Flea Style to see the incredible vendors and spend probabbbbbly more than I should. To give you the full picture, Flea Style is an event hosted twice a year with two huge indoor marketplaces in Dallas and Houston. The events houses 120+ artisans and small businesses that sling a highly curated array of items from art, furniture and paper goods to clothing, jewelry and dog gear. Vendors are carefully hand-selected by the Flea Style team and must hawk vintage, handmade or one-of-a-kind items.
Not only is the event a treasure trove, but it offers live music, food, adult beverages and activities from photo booths to giveaways.
If you do stop by the festival at Silver Street Studios, make sure to find details here about tickets and the location.
