A beautiful Saturday spent in Dallas at the second annual Christmas Dallas Flea. Lots of great things and met some more local Etsians. Always a joy!
I snagged a couple of prints(fox and mushroom) from Red Tile Studio and drooled over more prints like the be-spectacled bear at Pamela Michelle.
Some other favorite artists were ~f is for frank with their tooth and sea sponge jewelry
~The House of MacGregor millinery with beautiful hats of burlap and straw
~Signifying Notwith quirky Printed tees, paper goods and medals, their blog is delightful as well if you have a taste for the comic macabre!
and last but not least a great vintage display where I found lots more of these mid-century beaded ornaments from Peace Traveler vintage. I can't wait to get a tree tomorrow and start a little Holiday decor, Have a great weekend!
