Tax-Free Sales Weekend in Newnan

One of the benefits of being a Georgian is that we have a tax-free sales weekend right before kids go back to school. Mainstreet Newnan is participating in an extended tax-free sale.. everything is 7% off. So come on down this weekend and scoop up some great new items. Saturday is Market Day downtown as well. Hope to see you.

Back to Reality

School is about to start for some of us Georgians.. yes we officially will start back August 7th. Summer is over.. back to reality. To help get you back into keeping house and keeping your sanity, a few new products are being introduced at The Flea.
coming at the end of this week will be our line of Eco-Friendly home products like Laundry Detergent, Fabric Softener, Dryer Sheets, Linen Spray, Hand Lotion and Hand Soap. All in the amazing scents of Lavender, Verbena, and White Lilac.
Whimsical Magnets will get you motivated in the morning.
New 1/2 aprons and appliqued tea towels are in. Sorry for my awful pictures.. lesson learned never to take pictures at night! Also new to The Flea is the very unique mixed media jewelry from artist Lisa Souers. She and I participated in the Curious Sofa Art Show a few months ago and we became friends. Her keys and numbers series can be customized for you.

Why was the book in the hospital?

It broke it's spine! This was the joke my 7 yr. old told me after eating his popsicle (the jokes are on the stick). I got a good laugh then remembered that I wanted to show you all what we found the other day. Boxes and boxes of old lawyers books. We have them upstairs for sale for $1.00 each!! What can you do with them you ask......
Artist Sue Blackwell makes gorgeous sculptures with them.
Etsy entrepreneur "Rhymes with Magic" sell them in her etsy shop.

You can cover them and stick them in your library.
or you can take off the covers and use the insides to make some gorgeous displays.

See you at the Flea!

Inevitably someone will come into my store and ask about the seashells. Yes we have several different varieties for sale.. in Newnan!! I just love them. I always say you can take the girl out of Florida but you can't take the Florida out of the girl. So cruising through my bog roll recently I found this posting from This is Glamorous. I love the seashell chandeliers. We once covered a lamp with shells and it was gorgeous. In fact I have 2 more sitting on my pantry floor begging for me to shell them up.
And when I am ready to shell them up, I will look at Christa's South Seashell company for a little inspiration. I did just buy 3 busts at the antique shop for displays. Maybe I can shell them up when I am done with them.... hmmm.
My final bit of inspiration comes from the lovely mermaid looking necklace I found online. I can't remember now where it was but it showcased wire and unusual objects. Yes indeed it does.
Happy Shelling!
