the dallas flea

I had heard of the Dallas Flea, but never actually had a chance to attend - until this weekend. And it was such a treat. I went to UT and lived in Austin for four years, so when I stumble upon a young, artsy scene in Dallas, it literally warms my heart. The Dallas Flea is not at all to the scale of Canton or McKinney Trade Days, but this experience is less overwhelming and more personable (and it's indoors!). Some of my favorite vendors included Blue Eye Brown Eye, a letterpress printer in Fort Worth; Austin-based textile artist Leah Duncan; and unique jewelry designer f is for frank. And not to mention, barbeque favorite Off the Bone was there serving pulled chicken sliders and ribs in a cup, and Ruthie's Rolling Cafe made an appearance serving gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches (yum!!).

  1. I sold at the most recent Dallas Flea (April) and I just featured Your tassel garland in one of my treasuries! I saw that you lived in Little Elm (which is where my brother lives) and decided to check out your blog! LOVE your Etsy shop!!
