The weekend is almost here already, so it can only mean one thing - it's time once again for the Little Flea to do its thing at Goeller's parking lot. Only in its third edition, yet it's beginning to feel like Saturdays wouldn't be the same without the Little Flea in our dear neighborhood. Well, at least we'd like to think so.
Last week was a lot of fun, the scorching weather notwithstanding. Shoppers were milling about undeterred, while vendors, after a few hours under the sun, were figuring the best way to avoid getting baked by the scalding pavement. Lets just say that close friendships were made with those who came equipped with umbrellas and tents.
New vendors joined the gang, adding more color to the already eclectic-yet-carefully-curated mix of stuff that is the Little Flea. People like Lawrenceville resident and expert crafter Jessica Manack, from Miss Chief, who brought along her handmade collection of cards, journals, buttons, and magnets (see photo above).
With that being said, we'd like to extend an invitation to all our readers to come join the Little Flea -- as a shopper and, why not, as a vendor. In any case, remember to save your Saturdays for good old local shopping -- preferably in Lawrenceville. It's good for the community, the local economy, and, of course, it's good for you.
