I am posting some more details about a few of the jewelry items for sale at "the French Flea" this month, as well as some of Lori's bags. I have some out of state customers that are interested in more detailed photos, so per their requests I've decided to blog a bit about these items. You see, Lori is a vendor friend, that makes fabulous artisian items and one of those creations are a "Flea Bag" shoulder purse. They are very cool with the use of vintage buttons, and vintage chenille for the Fleur de leis and new burlap for the bags. They are priced at $29.00 each, plus tax. A great bag for a great price and each one-of-a-kind. See them below my jewelry. Lori was in a serious car accident this week on her way into the French Flea to bring in her designs, and I am hoping to generate some interest in her wonderful bags, to help her out, as she has a lot of unforseen expenses from this unfortunate accident. No it wasn't her fault, which is good, but very frustrating. She sustained facial bruising and hopefully not long sustaining injuries, but will recover with time. If you live in the area, please take the time to view her bags in person. She is very detailed and does a great job.
