BEST OF FLEA MARKET MAGAZINE

In this post from last year, I mentioned that some of my collectibles were being photographed for Best of Flea Market Style magazine. It seems so long ago but the issue is now on newsstands!


You can find photos and write-ups of my collections on pages 45, 82, 122 and 123. I recently found out more of them will be published in a flea market book that is in the works! I was so tickled that they photographed my collection of wooden peg dolls (below) but was not fond that they wanted me to be in the shot as well.


My colorful vintage English and Dutch candy tins were one of the first collections to catch their eye when they came to the house. I love their fanciful forms and charming decoration. When I spotted a two tiered chippy blue stand several years ago, I knew it was the perfect stage for these delightful containers. The magazine staff didn't have to readjust anything for this shot. Usually, they like to move a lot of things around to achieve the perfect shot.


I also have an article in the magazine. It's about a New York woman's cozy cottage filled with treasured heirlooms and timeworn finds.



I'm slow at getting the word about this issue, so I hope it's still on newsstands. If so, I hope you can check it out!
