Flea Market Style Magazine and Etsy

Found it!  The new Flea Market Style magazine finally surfaced in my local Walmart yesterday and it's another winner put together by Ki & her team.  
Permission  has been granted for me to give you a peek at the it is; intentionally distorted so that you can enjoy it fully when you get your copy of the magazine!  Find it at your local retailer or order it from the Flea Market Style blog...I promise you'll love it!

In the magazine, there is a shout-out to etsy sellers.  Did you know that there are well over a million vintage items listed on etsy right now? 

Browse the pages, get inspired and get busy.  My fellow etsy sellers offer many of the items featured in the magazine; I've put together a treasury of some of their offerings.

(By the way, do you know how to search on etsy?  Featured in one photo in FMS are bait buckets. Go to;  to the right of the etsy logo is a search box; it's a drop-down box that defaults to "handmade".  Click to the right of the word and select "vintage" from the box. Type in "bait bucket", to bring up all listings pertaining to vintage bait buckets.  That's how I found this beauty listed by SquidWhaleDesigns.)
A big thanks to Elizabeth for permission to use this photo. She and her friend Sarah own SquidWhaleDesigns.  Sarah has another fun etsy shop -  Mouse Trap Vintage...check it out!


  1. Thanks for featuring SquidWhale's minnow bucket here! It's Sarah of Mouse Trap Vtg.! :)

  2. Jan, I tell my friends who love vintage about Etsy all the time. It seems many who are not so computer tuned do not know of I spread the word. ♥O

  3. Thanks so much for telling me that it's now in our local stores...I'm off to get my copy! I'm looking for donations for giveaways at my blog...I'm celebrating my one year birthday for my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS PARTY...if you know anybody that might like to do this...please send them my way...thanks:)

  6. Hi Jan! I nabbed my FMS at the local grocery store a week ago and loved every single page in it! I'm now subscribing to it. ♥ I'm a total addict of Etsy, too! I can spend an entire day on there surfing around gathering crafting ideas and of course.....buying way too many things! lol!
