Flea Off Market

The Flea Off Market is a once-a-month outdoor bazaar that will take place in the heart of Louisville, off Market on Shelby Street. There will be dozens of vendors each month offering a wide variety of tantalizing wares. There will be books, records, bicycles, kittens, antiques, cool old junk, used tools, fine arts and crafts, fresh-cut-flowers, esoterica, live music, and entertainments for all ages (bring the kids!) The Flea Off Market will also have food trucks selling toothsome delights and plenty of refreshing alcoholic beverages.

So come on down to The Flea Off Market! It will happen the second Saturday of every month, along Shelby Street and in the lot next to Salvo Collective, 216 South Shelby Street (between Market and Nanny Goat Strut Alley).

The next market will be tomorrow, December 10th from 12:00-5:00 PM. Fly Away Fox will be there selling all kinds of vintage stuff! Here’s a sampling of our vintage inventory to give you a taste of what to expect tomorrow!


Most of you may associate the word chevron with the Chevron Oil and Gas Company. However, it was originally used in military and heraldry design.  It’s popular among mid-century design and is great for adding a bold statement to any room. This zig zag pattern may seem funky but it can look sophisticated. Just use white or black in place of a second color and you have a clean design look! I recently purchased a chevron rug from and I love it! I now want chevron all over my house!

Check out this free Chevron pattern from Design Sponge.  Here are some other great chevron items that I found!

If you love it as much as I do you can purchase chevron fabric here.
