At Any Given Moment

There's always something of interest happening during our sales. Let's take a peek, shall we?

In The Lobby
A New "FLEA-ETTE"'s First Visit

Objects In Mirror Are Smaller Than They Appear.
We were honored to learn that the December opening of Paris Flea Market was the first outing for petite little four-day-old McKenna (shown here IN PINK surrounded by her loving escorts). She was smaller than the shopping bag she took home!

The Midas Touch

She's Got It All Together Now
From her golden locks to the tip of her "new" sparkly gold shoes, customer Erin Kannel (with some help from Jean in our vintage clothing Chic Boutique upstairs) pulled together this ensemble which is sure to make her shine at all the holiday parties. Grandma was happy to be able to purchase this as Erin's Christmas gift!

In The Mirror
It's Not "Old Hat" To Love Vintage
Caught In The Act
We FLEAS love to shop too! We can't help but check out all the goodies we see our fellow FLEAS bring in to sell every month. Consignor Lisa W. checks out a brown, velvet beret with a rhinestone embellishment and dreams all of the places she could wear it!

In The Open Market Downstairs
The Eyes Have It

You Can Shop But You Can't Hide
Audrey Hepburn lovers only have to look up on this 16 foot wall to get a glimpse of their favorite eyes peering down on them as they stroll through the "Open Market" downstairs and toss coins into the fountain for luck!

Everywhere You Look!
Deals Are Not Hard To Find

Customers Look In Every Nook & Cranny
December was packed with one-of-a-kind steals and hands were flying to get them! They knew it was their last chance to be in "Paris" before Christmas and holiday gift-giving, so full advantage was taken! They also know that Room With A Past in Walnut Creek still has yet to host its December opening on the 16, 17, 18 & 19th so they had one more place to keep in mind for those important almost-last minute gifts!

In The Main Hall
Don't Forget The Fudge

Goodies In The "Candy Isle"
Consignor Sally I. stands ready to help near the checkout where we've lined up an assortment of professionally kitchen-baked yummies such as candy, fudge, honey and jams along with gorgeous artisan jewelry of silver, colorful resins, vintage bits & buttons, not to mention layers of paper items like vintage images on tags, journals and calenders.
