Fitz and the Tantrums

A wonderful thing happened as I was driving to my vacation getaway last week, I actually turned on the radio and heard a song that made me stop and listen.  It is very rare for me to listen to the radio but I got a  bit nostalgic as I was heading south in the direction of my college town of Indiana University.  I turned the dial to 92.3 Bloominton and was immediately transported back to my college days:)  This group is called Fitz and the Tantrums, the song is "Moneygrabber".  The song, although new, sounds familiar with a Motown feel yet fresh all the same, I can't stop listening to it.  As soon as I was back to civilization and able to connect to a computer I downloaded their music and was not disappointed by one song on their cd.  They are a cool group, if you have time check them out on Live at Daryl's House.   At the very least check out this song, it will be a nice tune to take you into the weekend!

Have a fabulous weekend!

The Getaway

As mentioned in our last post, we disappeared for a few weeks and took some much needed time off after our last flea market.  We had been working hard preparing for our last event while at the same time working our full time jobs, Dusty a guitar teacher for Six String University and I as a Human Resource manager.  We were quite frankly exhausted, and needed to slow down and chill.  During this month we were able to accomplish a few personal goals.  Dusty wrote a short screenplay, which is awesome and is currently looking to collaborate with an animator, please call if you have such talents:)  I, however, didn't accomplish such impressive endeavors. Instead, I ran off to the woods and hugged a tree.  Ahhhhhhhhh... silence, to finally hear nothing was, amazing.  I know I will surprise a few of you by the fact that I went alone and I have to admit, my first night in a remote house in the woods I too was surprised I was able to get past the fear of Freddy Krueger knocking at my door.   In the end I conquered my fears, cooked myself some amazing meals, listened to some great music and soaked in a jacuzzi under the stars.  Below are just a few photos that I thought I would share.

This amazing house is called "Robyn's Nest"

Charcoal flame equals yummy eats:)

This should be our Syd and Harper mobile

Perfect compliment to my fantastic burger

It's amazing how getting away from it all allows one to gain perspective, think clearly and dream.  The time away was productive and we are now ready to continue our journey.  Thanks for checking in!

We are back!!!!

Ok, we are back! We never actually went away, we just took a much needed month off to relax, have some fun and rejuvenate. In the month of June we made a decision to move out of our space at the antique mall and take our items out on the road to meet all of you. Our first show at Perk Up Cafe in Broad Ripple was very fun and successful. We were fortunate to meet up and collaborate with another business that is in the process of opening currently referred to as the "Corner Store" at the intersection of 75th and Westfield Blvd. in Broad Ripple. This past weekend we came out of hibernation and had a flea market at the store. Below are a few of the pictures taken from the event...

We love our new Brownie Cameras and bowling pin:)

The antique typewriter is a perfect decor piece...

Anyone need a lightbulb?

The "Corner Store" at 75th an Westfield Blvd... Like them on Facebook :)

Thanks to everyone who stopped by this weekend, it was so great seeing everyone again and meeting new friends!!
