Happy New Year everybody! We just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has come to
visit us over the past year and we also wanted to share some information with you about
National Hobby Month! As you probably know, what is one man's trash is another man's
treasure and we just wanted to touch on this as we show you a brand new DIY project that we
have been working on. We found this old picture at one of our booths and we just knew that it
had tons of potential, so what did we do? We cleaned it, put a coat of paint on it, sanded the
edges to give it a distressed look and to bring it all together we used black chalkboard paint
over the picture part to create a chalkboard. By the end, we had a stunning organizational
wall hanging and let's be honest, this would work well in any home. Perfect for keeping track
of your family’s appointments, inspiration quotes, your to-do list or even your grocery list.Read More »

Fall is here and there are certainly signs of it here at Jamie’s Flea Market.
I love strolling through the market on a nice autumn day. Seeing the vendors transition from summer to fall is always exciting as their booths change with the season. For some vendors this means adding fall scented candles and fall décor. For others, it means transitioning their fruit stands from Strawberries to Apples, Pumpkins and Gourds. One thing is for sure, I love the shedding of the beautiful colored leaves from the deciduous trees.Read More »
