1. Patterned Blue Indigo Pillow: I don’t know one person who doesn’t like indigo, especially when its handmade, picked out at the Rose Bowl and held hostage at my house for a year before I let it turn into this pillow.

2. Antique Brass Bowl: She’s little and old, but she has a lot to offer still.

3. Grape Still Life Aquatint: This is what we like to call ‘Kitchen art’ for obvious reasons. I was tempted to keep this for me since I have a more traditional style kitchen coming up, but I figured i’d try to sell if first. It’s super pretty in person and special.

4. Penguin Bottle Opener: I don’t remember if this is vintage or new (I think its vintage, but sometimes with this kind of stuff I forget). But its so cute for a bar.

5. Top Banana: Duh. Its going to sell the second that I press publish. For your boss for Christmas/Hannukuh?

6. Orange & Blue Planter: Could be a planter or coin dish, key dish, or part of your larger pottery collection. The terracotta/blue combo is so pretty.

7. Tiger Plate: I LOVE this and such a great gift for someone who likes midcentury Bennington-style pottery.

8. Pink Marbles: I have used these in so many shoots you’d be shocked. They look like silly pink marbles but they really come in handle to help fill that adorable little vessel or plate on a side table.

9. Green Ceramic Relief Vessel: Sold. So fast. I love this footed planter or vase. These are the things you spot out of the corner of your eye and you bee-line for at the flea market.

10. German Sewing Scissors: For all you german seamstresses out there. Also translates well on english clothing.

11. Wicker Turtle Planter: For all of you who love that playful California mod look – or eclectic english garden look. For all you borderline weirdos, basically – of which I am one.

12. Brass Heart Box: – Such a great little gift for someone who likes simple, pretty sweet brass goodness.

1. Sunrise Original Art: For you somber, neutral types. I love this seascape.

2. Patchwork Wood Bookends: These are kookie, I know, but there is something totally weird and special about these things.

3. Danish Figural Vase: I have such a thing for these types of things. You can’t have too many of these in your house, but a few of them definitely creates a conversation.

4. Danish Blue Glass Bowl: So thin, big and beautiful. Great for salads but also just pretty on the dining table with fruit.

5. Pink Marbled Serving Plate: These are so beautiful and I can’t believe i’m selling them. They have hints of gold in them and they aren’t printed, they are the real deal (even the back is marbled).

6. Brass Armadillo: For those of you who’s brass animal collection was missing the armadillo.

7. Small Woven Macrame: It’s perfect for a bathroom, entrance, or above a nightstand.

8. Paisley Napkin Set: For all you Vera napkin fans, these vintage ladies are in perfect condition.

9. Meadows Landscape Painting: Another landscape because I can’t not.

10. Green Embroidered Pillow: I got this pillow at an estate sale of the most eccentric production designer with the best taste ever. These poppy mid-century pillows are so wild and beautifully made.

11. Asymmetrical Table Lamp: Perfect for a little bookshelf – sculptural and functional.

12. Artisanal Wood Clipboard: Why don’t we clipboard things more???!!

1.  Blue Hanging Planter: Vintage and sure, one could also call it an ashtray, but technically it’s a planter.

2. Dansk Double-Handled Low Dish: You know I love a handled dish.

3. Female Nutcracker: It’s a conversation piece for sure, but why not break open some nuts with that lady?

4. Blue Enamel Bowl: I’ve made so many salads in this bowl. So many. Now you can, too.

5. Painted Eggs on Wood Stands: I’m obsessed with these and if I didn’t have kids I would own these in a second. Handpainted, so weird and unique and perfect for a collectors shelf.

6. Wheat Field Landscape: Pretty little painting for a pretty little nook.

7. Pink Chip n’ Dip: So pretty and handy for your holiday parties?

8. Skeleton Keys: Something else I’ve had for ages and have loved styling with.

9. Blue & White Studio Vase: I will regret not keeping this guy. I LOVE IT.

10. Urchin Vase: Yea, it’s amazing. I just bought it and i’m only not keeping frankly because I wanted some dope pieces on flea to show off my skills. You are welcome, you lucky buyer.

11. Blue Studio Pitcher: It’s so kookie, fun, and adorable.

12. Brass Football: So cute in a kids room, despite the fact that Charlie may not be allowed to play that oh-so-fun sport (I’m mostly just hoping to divert his attention to virtually any other sport despite the fact that both of us come from HUGE football families).

13. Stoneware Bowl: I love this pretty little dish. It has been in so many shoots in my house and I truly don’t know why I would sell it. It’s simple and special – my two favorite things together.

14. Midcentury Teapot: An estate sale find that would look amazing in our new kitchen.

15. Turquoise Napkin Rings: How cute are these? I don’t think I’ve ever used napkin rings in my life except for styling a shoot, but these are motivating me a bit.

Lots more coming soon, folks. Right now we have a batch every two weeks and maybe the first week of December we’ll amp it up and release 100 pieces. Stay tuned and happy Saturday!

  1. I don’t know if i should write this on this post or the other one, but I read both of them and wanted to share.

    I think where some conservatives come from and what my own family has directly experienced is that there are people in this country who work hard and deserve to be compensated. But it seems as if there are some people in this country who are either born here or come here thinking they can live off of the good of someone else and not work for something themselves. Please understand I don’t say this to be mean. I’ve wrestled with this with some of my own family members. Instead of going out and getting a job, which they are COMPLETELY capable of doing, they have said its boring to get a job and they would rather have fun and live off of welfare. It just seems as if sometimes those who are working hard for their money are punished and forced to give to those who do not care.

    Yet I understand there are others who are working tirelessly and need a break. I think the problem is that many people were tired of this. The way the government is set up with Obama and from what Hillary said of her policies its hard to decipher between the two. There are people in this world who need our help and need our care, and then we have a lot of entitled millenials who need to learn how to work and not be rewarded for laziness.

    Because of that A LOT of people wanted CHANGE!

    And although the media has highlighted many of Trump’s failings, he has done so much to help people who are truly in need and that is rarely shown. PLUS, a lot of hard working people are TIRED. The people who seem to need help aren’t getting it, and the ones who are living off of the good of others seem to get too much of it.

    I voted for Trump. And not because he was the only option. But because I wanted to. I was proud to. I’m 28 years old. I live in Los Angeles. And I went and cast my vote PROUDLY. I do not say this to offend others or to gloat, but because i feel like some people have been scared to say that they were proud to vote for him for fear of what some liberals are saying to and about what kind of people they must be.

    I just want to show that there are people, regular ones, like me who were proud to do it.

    I think for the most part… we all care about people and want to help people. We just see very different ways of doing it.

    Trump seemed to really be sick of the BS that our government has been a part of and has been taking part in for YEARS. He has given a lot to veterans and to families in need, and I have to say that my husband served for four years and the things and policies Obama had in place were hard on veterans. It affected many of his soldiers and it affected our family. There seemed to be little respect also. Its not just that my husband didn’t get paid as much, there were a large group of soldiers who truly were fearful because they felt their lives were more in danger by things Obama had made decisions about and things Hillary talked about. There seemed to be more care, respect, from Trump towards Veterans. And the things he said resonated with a lot of my husband’s soldiers.

    Now I”m sure there are many soldiers who felt differently, just sharing our own experience, because that is all that I have to share.

    And you’re right, I feel our government does waste A LOT of money, and Trump seemed to feel that way as well. Thats why we wanted to vote for him in that aspect as well.

    HIllary had a very long time to make changes and the changes she did make did not make huge impacts it seems, and some of them harmed men in service. But truthfully the large majority of Americans who were so desperate for change, felt as though if she would have created that it would have already happened in some fashion. But truly it would have been more of same old same ol.

    I think the problem that arises with immigrants is that its completely imperative we care for any human being. However, we also must care for our country and citizens and many immigrants were HURTING our citizens and coming in illegal and not being prosecuted for crimes because of that. Many people who voted for trump weren’t voting AGAINST immigrants, but voting FOR our citizens and their safety. Could Trump have commented better?? YES!! But I think a lot of people living IN this country have been scared for their lives because of the crime and because of people who were here not following the rules at the expense of those of us who are. We must care for immigrants, but not at the expense of our own people.

    I also wanted to comment on him inciting violence. Its ironic to me that liberals are making a big deal about that, when Hillary Clinton PAID people to incite violence at his rallies. I just can’t understand why one side is not talking about how there is proof she has PAID people to incite violence. Its bewildering to me how you can talk about the words of one and then not speak about how she paid hundreds of people to INCITE violence. I just cannot comprehend. Neither is right. But its also wrong to turn a blind eye to one side.

    Another thing I cannot understand is that Hillary Clinton ridiculed, shame, and belittle the women that her husband sexually offended. She blamed them. She destroyed their lives in so many ways. And it seems hypocritical an biased to speak about Donald’s words about women without recognizing her words about women as well. I think many who voted for Trump feel this way, honestly. If we were just voting based on that then both candidates would be guilty. So it had to come to bigger things… and policies were much bigger in many ways.

    I think those who voted for Trump (or at least myself) were concerned about the BILLIONS of dollars that Americans paid in taxes that went into funding her family members houses…. paying other countries… funding her own foundation…. some that got “lost” is a huge concern. When you’re working hard for your money and you realize your money went to fund Hillary Clinton’s brother’s house.. .its not how you really want our entire country’s money to be spent. And it worries you. If she did that with the money she was in charge of then, what would she do with our country’s money? It was a HUGE concern!

    As far as planned parenthood and ABORTION. I think you’re RIGHT. Its SO MUCH more about education and about resources than it is about pro life or pro choice. However, all of the MILLIONS of dollars that America is paying for planned parenthood hasn’t seemed to do as much good as one would like to see. My friends have tried to get help from Planned Parenthood and they had to pay more than they paid out of pocket at the drug store for things. I’m not saying this case for everyone, and I would love to hear how it has benefited people! But I think that we need a really good way of helping women get good access to birth control and so far I haven’t seen that Planned Parenthood has accomplished that. I think many have had a similar experience and maybe thats why you see so many against it as you do. Just trying to give understanding.

    As MANY conservatives have said… it would be AMAZING to see a woman as President!!!! Donald Trump’s campaign manager was the first female campaign manager. I have NO concerns that a woman couldn’t run this country WELL. Its that she wasn’t the woman we felt had integrity enough to do so. I don’t think just ANY woman is qualified and that we should just vote solely based on gender. Nor do i think we should not vote solely based on gender. And truthfully I don’t feel as though most have.

    But I just wanted to chime in and say that yes i voted for trump and it wasn’t because there was no better option. It was because we wanted to and felt confident about our decision. Does that mean we are not empathetic with those who are very fearful and very upset? Absolutely not. I have not even told any of my friends that we are happy with the outcome because of that. But I did want to share form someone who is proud of her vote, since you asked for understanding, and not just from someone who didn’t have any options.

    I think we can all agree that we all wanted change!

    And I think this is a HUGE wake up call either way that WE MUST BE THE CHANGE WE WISH TO SEE. We cannot rely on the government to make the change. We need to get to work, not be lazy, and make changes in this world.

    For that I am grateful for this election and I pray that each of us can do our part to love others and be a change in this country!

    Thank you for allowing me to share!

    1. I find this long comment offensive and out of place on a design blog. I appreciate the question you posed after the election but I’m ready to read comments about what you have posted today and not some summary of Fox News.

    2. I also would like to say that at 28 years old you have not experience the true meaning of working hard, supporting a family and suffering. My sister has adopted three kids out of the foster care system and has one biological child. Her family has struggled to make ends meet because her husband is a self employed electrician as well as a veteran. When I say struggled I mean, that they were on state insurance before Obamacare and sometimes had to rely on their church for food pantry. He works HARD. Seven days a week HARD. 16 hour days hard. Without the mortgage law, they would have lost their house TWICE. These are the people that NEED these programs that are working hard but one slow week at work could mean they slip on bills, can’t get enough groceries to feed a family of 6. Get behind and can’t catch up. And before you say, why didn’t you help them? They were to proud to share before the election brought the topic up. My sister voted for Hillary because she feels like without Obamacare, WIC program, State mandated health insurance for children, the mortgage reform law they wouldn’t have made it. Her husband voted for Trump because he felt if a republican was in office his small business would be doing better and he wouldn’t have needed to rely on those programs. We will see who is right. My firm belief is that government taking away programs that benefit women (WIC and planned parenthood) children (mandated state health insurance) and families (mortgage loan reform) and giving a slight tax break isn’t going to help them, its going to hurt. Sorry I just had to pipe in because being 28 and only having to take care of yourself and saying that people are taking advantage of welfare set me on fire.

      1. I think she was saying that there are people that abuse the welfare system while there are others that truly need the help.

    3. I’ve been thinking for the past two days not about Trump, but about the people who voted for him (I did not). The discussion on this blog and others has given me a lot of food for thought (and I am sure we’ll get back to design eventually).
      These people who have honestly been ridiculed and pushed to the back burner for years are in fact HALF our population, Look at the lopsided distribution of wealth, we can all see that and agree about that! I really feel for these people and I wish they had someone better than Trump to represent them. And who am I? Maybe I’m “elite” in terms of education (and I detest the word “elite”), but my credit is “bleh”, I haven’t had health insurance for almost 10 years, AND I work at a top university. Something is wrong, isn’t it? My salary and lifestyle when I lived abroad was so much better than it is in my own country. And no, as long as I am healthy and able to work I will never accept government assistance. There are other people that need it much more than I do.
      I’ve tried for the past several days not to think about the mud-slinging and name-calling and literally TRUMPED UP fake news and the accusations leveled at candidates. Instead I’ve been thinking about my neighbors, those people who lived right down the road from me. We need to support and seek to understand each other.

      1. Susie,

        agreed… making it about the people and not the candidate and rhetoric. People are layered and diverse and so are their beliefs and needs. I have witnessed it in my very own family. I am sure we all have.

        Emily, I am sorry I took your lovely Flea post in another direction. It is lovely and so are your collaborations with artists. Your hard work and beautiful talent should be celebrated here.

    4. After reading the other post about why people voted for Trump (note: I didn’t), I felt hopeful. Like that maybe it wouldn’t be that bad, or at least as bad as I thought, to have Trump as president. In reading this comment, my fears are restoked. As the child of an immigrant (yes, a legal one), I’m particularly disturbed by the part of this post that says immigrants are damaging to this country and are hurting U.S. citzens. Guess what? My father, the immigrant, is a U.S. citizen, and has been since the 1980s. So, when you say immigrants are hurting citizens, is he hurting himself? I also took umbrage at the implication that Milennials are lazy and/or disproportionately using government programs. These types of generalizations are hurtful to an entire generation of people, many of whom are working just as hard as you. I really wish I could lasso my optimism from the previous post and hold it again. Currently, I’m back to quivering in fear.

    5. It’s kind of shocking how wrong you are about so many things you’ve said, yet you say them with such conviction.

      One thing about this election and politics in general right now that really has me sad, confused and angered – is how facts are no longer objective. We believe what we’ve been told, and when they’re lies, and can be disputed easily with proof, people still say it’s not true, it’s biased, it’s wrong. Facts aren’t beliefs, I don’t have to believe a fact for it to be true. It’s objectively true. Whether I agree or believe it. Your post is full of so many untruths Danielle, and yet I am almost positive that if I were to show facts disputing them, the original poster would choose not to believe them. Where do we go from here?

      On another note (because this was not the blog post to talk politics in the first place) I love almost everything you are selling on the flea, Emily. I wish I could fill my house with all of it!

  2. thanks for you… ver good post… i like that
