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!

Bridges

Known mostly for watercolors, Bob Halliday is a staple in the Louisville art scene. He recently branched out and created a series of paintings about bridges in Louisville. The works are modern and architectural and remind me of Swedish design.  Each piece is unique and offers a different perspective on what many of us view as a mundane object. The detailing of the rust shown in the photos below adds just enough realism to the almost abstract “pop art” works. These are definitely a must-have if you’re looking to add some color to your walls.  See more work by Bob Halliday!

Pyrex Love

One of my favorite things to do is get on Etsy and search for all of the vintage pyrex they have for sale. I love the different designs and colors! I recently discovered a new website all about pyrex! Pyrex Love

This website lists all of the different kinds of pyrex, answers questions about cleaning and care, and gives you a history of pyrex too! It is a pyrex wonderland!
