Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year Wish

My Happy New Year wish for you
Is for your best year yet,
A year where life is peaceful,
And what you want, you get.

A year in which you cherish
The past year’s memories,
And live your life each new day,
Full of bright expectancies.

I wish for you a holiday
With happiness galore;
And when it’s done, I wish you
Happy New Year, and many more.

By Joanna Fuchs

Have a Happy New year!!!

Merry Christmas to all…

2010 candlelight

From our home to yours…we hope you had a Merry Christmas.  Ours was spent with family and friends, in my hometown of Anaheim (CA!).  Where ever your holidays were spent, may they have been everything you hoped for.

Peace on Earth!


Merry Christmas Eve!

Spending time with family in friends in Orange County! A few of the festive things we saw on our shopping trip in Old Towne Orange. Always colorful outside Victoria Co:

FABULOUS vintage finds!

It looked a lot like Christmas!!!

The December opening of the Paris Flea Market opening was to.die.for.  Spectacular from top to bottom.  It was glitz and glam, sparkles and snowflakes, a winter wonderland indeed!  A few of the highlights…

Stationery, tags, cards and gifts by Mementos (there was hardly anything left in this cabinet at the end of the sale!)


GORGEOUS handcrafted journals, altered bottles, velvet hearts, and much more from the very talented Sharon:


Vintage Christmas from Julie, the ‘Queen of Rustica’:


And the always lovely room of special finds from DebiO, the QUEEN of beautiful things!!


Much of what you see isn’t there anymore because it went home with happy customers!  That gives us fleas a feel-good feeling, one because we LOVE to sell our wares, but also because we REALLY LOVE to SHOP!  And the more we sell, the more we get to SHOP!

We’ll be open after the first of the year with more amazing home d├ęcor, beautiful things to keep or give and, as always, lots of one of a kind items.

Happy holidays!

Happy Ho-Ho-Holiday Boutique!

The last of the holiday shows for the season was at my sons school.  We made up a lot of fun boutique-y type crafts, sold lots, and gave a % of the sales to the Hadsters 5th grade class for their overnight camp later in the year.  His little candy grab-bags were a hit, sold at $1 each and all the $ will go to camp too.

Lots of cute things, popcorn treats ‘Have a POPPY Christmas!’, gift card holders, Christmas Countdown’ Calenders (with a chalkboard insert so you can change the day – quite clever!)…


‘Ho-Ho-Holiday Hot Cocoa to Go’ cups, candy cane holders, and of course LOTS of vintage image tags and greeting cards.  Something for everyone! 


We had a great time, saw lots of friends from school, and were able to make a nice donation to the Camp fund! 

One last shop opening for the year, Room With a Past is open NEXT weekend, stop by their Website for more info on what will be an amazing opening! 

Happy Ho Ho Holidays!
