We Grew A Few Feet!

As wonderful as it might be to grow an extra hand, that's not exactly what we're talking about. But we are talking "feet"!

Spring is a season of growth, and we've grown as well! We're excited to announce we've just added an additional 1500 square feet of new adjoining space at our current location! Come check it out on Saturday (10am-4pm) and Sunday (10am to 3pm) during our regular March opening ( March 7, 8, 9 & 10th: Thursday 6 PM - 9 PM, Friday  9 AM - 4 PM, Saturday  9 AM - 4 PM & Sunday  10 AM - 4 PM)  when we'll host an indoor "Parking Lot Sale". For our parking lot sale we will be taking mostly cash and checks (some vendors do have credit card capability). You'll find lots of furniture, home decor, Parisian gift ideas and so much more!

We're still in the same location at 535 Leisure Street, but we now have this additional warehouse space for renting out space to vendors, and to hold creative classes!  

 So far we've got classes on:

Time For Inspiration!

We love it when our customers inspire us! We got this note from 
Jackie Irby, who came to shop at Paris Flea Market during our 
January opening, and just had to share what she wrote!
Hi Ladies!
First I must tell you how much fun my daughter and 
I have visiting your store each and every month. 
We're usually in the store at least an hour or more,
and drag ourselves back to the car and load up. Each
and every one of you are friendly and very helpful.  
On Jan 9, I had a mission - to find a pair of black 
shutters and unusual clock items to hang on the shutters,
whose theme is "time".  Well, I scored big time and 
scooped up anything that would go with that subject matter.
It was fun, frustrating, exhilarating and exciting to
work on (the project). I'm going to paint on the top 
(on the wall) "When was the last time you did something 
for the first time?". I am going be very anxious to hear
your feedback. I get inspiration  and energy when I go 
to your store, and it entices me to start another project.
Of course you will be seeing my daughter and I again next
time - and perhaps a car with a bigger trunk!
Thank you for a great team of ladies who make shopping
so much fun. Counting the days til you open again.
Jackie Irby  
Well, Jackie, we think you, your idea and your project are all 
FABULOUS! Thanks from the bottom of our collective hearts
for sharing  it and your excitement with us! We're SO grateful
for our customers who support us in doing what we love to do
month after month!  
We hope to see you in Livermore, CA again at our next opening:
February 7 - 10th, 2013

2012 Rewind & a Shopping Spree Winner!

2012 is just a few days from being gone forever (can you believe it?) so let's take a step back to where it all began. 

2012 will be the year we remember as when we got our first shipment of Cece Caldwell's Paint!

It was the year of a Ladies Shopping Trip to France!

It was a year full of showing our wares (and our smiling faces!) at Antique Fairs throughout Northern California,

and our first ever Parking Lot Sale at the store!

It was a year of flowers in the Spring,

sand, seashells and beach-y colors in the summer,


 and an Autumn full of fun and elegance!


Wrapping it all up with a season of hope for the New Year, we celebrated a Christmas filled with gifts of glitter and glitz.

And the winner of our annual Christmas tree and $100 shopping spree was:
Breanna Tucker!

Here's to a very Happy New Year! We hope to see you soon!

January 3, 4, 5 & 6th
Deal with the dealers-one day only: Sunday, Jan. 6th!
Half off all Christmas/Holiday items on all four days!
February 7, 8, 9 & 10th
March 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11th
April 4, 5, 6 & 7th
May 2, 3, 4 & 5th
June 6, 7, 8 & 9th

 Watch for more dates still to come!

Little Alters All Around

Do you believe in the spirit of the holidays?


 The spirit that warms the soul?

 The spirit that allows you to bestow kindness upon all that cross your path?

 The spirit that observes, acknowledges and knows the joy in wonder?

We've got spirit up to the rafters this month, in every corner of the store!

Come and find your spirit this month at Paris Flea Market December 6, 7, 8 & 9th. Just for coming in, you'll be entered into a raffle for a decorated table-top tree with a $100 gift certificate attached!

 Hope to see you soon!

Chalk It Up to Before & After

If you've been to Paris Flea Market in Livermore, you've already seen the gorgeous furniture we have painted with our CeCe Caldwell's Chalk & Clay Paints, which we sell at the store.

 But how would you like to see how they all looked before they were ready for their "close-ups"? Now you can! 

There's a new blog that's dedicated to showing you the condition in which these pieces were found, and how the transformation took place from a questionable start to beautiful finish!

"A Painted Past"  features a new piece every week. The last post shared a wonderful dresser and story sent in by one of our customers who used the paint for the first time! Share your before and after story about CeCe Caldwell Paints at and A Painted Past just might feature you too! 

See more treasures at our sister store, Room With A Past in Walnut Creek, CA November 15, 16, 17 & 18th.
