Little Flea Scene, September 5: Full House, er, Parking Lot

It was a splendid day at Little Flea - the best one yet. The perfect weather made everything possible (a far cry from the calamity of two weeks ago). Our kickass vendors, who were present in record numbers and filling the lot to capacity, used every inch of space at their disposal to show off a truly impressive flea selection. From early on, swarms of new and old visitors descended upon us, quickly setting the market abuzz like never before. And though we didn't have buskers this time around, the relentless chatter and laughter mixed brilliantly to produce a very pleasant, human kind of music. It was also a great day for picture taking, as you would imagine. Here a few (or a lot, depending on your tolerance) that captured Little Flea at its best.

Antiques and collectibles at Connie's space.
Katy's spot chuck-full of cool things - too many to list here.
A new addition: a bookstall! Very popular, which means people are still into reading actual books despite the digital menace. Talking about things under threat, Little Flea and Equita would like to encourage everyone to get involved in the campaign to save Pittsburgh libraries, especially those which are currently facing closings due to budget cuts. OK, PSA done - on to more pictures.
Two artists -- one a shopper, the other a vendor (Penny), and both good friends -- having fun.
Tina's spot is officially an attraction. Seriously.A visitor takes a break from shopping. It's good to be at Little Flea.
Another new addition: vinyl records, courtesy of Chris, who is apparently lost in a book here. And below we have some folks checking out Lynne's collection of household goods.These pictures say it all, don't you think? Don't miss next Saturday. Stop by and help us make it another great day.
