Hot Night at the North Shore Flea

 The North Shore Flea is a fun place to hang out. The atmosphere is great, and with a farmer's market and gourmet food vendors just steps away, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more pleasant way to spend a Wednesday evening. 
This past Wednesday Kathy, (Down Lilac Lane) and I teamed up for another visit to the market.  The two of us always manage to bring enough to fill several spaces and never seem to be set up on time. Just down the way from us on one side was Diane Landry.  Mary Ann was a couple of spaces away on the other side and brought this fab dress form.
 We made new friends when we met our neighbors Pete and Mo.  This fun duo has terrific stuff, including some killer architectural pieces.
 The evening was humid which probably kept the crowds down a bit.  The extreme weather has really provided a challenge to this young market.
Still, the crowd was a nice size this past Wednesday.
Thanks to everyone that stopped in to see us! We won't be able to be back at North Shore in the near future, but you should still head out there and shop if you get a chance!  (Our next show is the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market on August 14th.)
