Spring Flea & Fair!

 You guys! The Spring Flea and Fair is NEXT WEEK!! I feel a whole ball of emotions ranging from the I’m-10-and-I’m-on-my-way-to-Disneyland excited to the I’m-15-and-its-my-freshman-year-of-highschool nervous.  I mostly feel prepared….except for when I don’t! Ha! Can anyone else who has been a first time seller relate?? As our projects come to a close (hopefully sooner rather than later…;) ), I wanted to share some more details on the when/where/what of the fair in case you are interested in joining us for a lovely day filled with shopping and inspiration!

Meet Whitney


 Whitney was also raised in Williamsburg, Iowa, but now lives in Iowa City with her husband Pete and their silver lab Reagan. She has a keen eye and the creative design ability to put together a beautiful, cohesive and practical space. She personally combines boho, vintage, and industrial pieces to create her own terrific style! Check out this shot of her lovely home:

Meet Julia


 (Well, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably already met me on some level 😉 ) But in case you haven’t…I am a Montana native who moved to Iowa 6 years ago and has now lived in Kalona, IA for almost exactly 1 year. My husband Jon and I have talked about selling at one of these types of events for over a year, so I can hardly believe it is finally happening! We have been working hard to bring our best to you next weekend!

Here are some quick shots of just a few of the items we will be selling:

Can’t wait to see you there! And thank you for all of your support and encouragement through this whole process…I have received so many kind and thoughtful comments and notes that have boosted my spirits and helped muster my determination. Thank you, friends!! I couldn’t do it without you.
