This Saturday at the Little Flea Cultural Corner

Awesome line-up this Saturday!

12 p.m. - The New Tourists
Rather than hang back and observe from a distance, The New Tourists approach their forays into the musical universe with enthusiasm, respect, humility and gratitude. With Brian on guitar and banjo, Jeanne on mandolin, Jenny on ukulele and Gary on guitar, The New Tourists mix traditional string band and folk sounds with updated arrangements and social and ecological conscience. Their music is the travelogue of their journey, always changing, full of wonder, and played with fully engaged minds, hands, voices and hearts.

This Saturday at Little Flea: Featured Vendors

Perfect warm flea market weather awaits us tomorrow, and, as we do every week, we got an awesome gang of vendors bringing you the right stuff. (Plus, starting at noon, top-notch local talent will be on hand to provide the sweetest soundtrack a flea market ever had.) Here's a sneak peek at who and what's coming this Saturday.

Sarah and Lauren return with their Tent of Goodies, featuring this time around: small furniture, vintage items, women's clothing, shoes, accessories, household items, recycled crafts, jade plant cuttings, potted sunflower plants, cd's, small electronics and more!

Kathyn Carr from Go Carr Go makes intricate, sought-after paper cut art work that's delightfully whimsical. She sells the originals, but also uses the images to make greeting cards, prints, and some jewelry.

Take your time at Rebecca's tables chuck full of hard-to-find collectibles and household items.

If silver jewelry is your thing, you must check out Marie Mazzocco's (Gypsy Silver Design) handmade creations.

'09 Vendor Katy returns this weekend with her awesome collection of housewares, clothing and books.

So, there you have it! Little Flea: another reason to hang in Lawrenceville. See you there!

This Saturday at the Little Flea Cultural Corner: Tracy Drach

12 p.m.
Tracy Drach's music is the sophisticated love child born of a 1960's coffeehouse and an after-hours speakeasy. Whether you call her an acoustic activist, a musical humorist or a folk feminist, her presence onstage can only be distilled into the simple phrase Smokin' Folk Cabaret. Her original songs coddle and encourage the strength it takes to live with love and joy in a world of uncertainty.

Tracy will be opening the show for Jill Sobule at Club Cafe on Tuesday, Oct 12. Tickets ($14.00) are now available through Tracy at

What Community Looks Like: FleaScene May 15 + 29

The last two editions of Little Flea have been memorable. See for yourself: browse through the photo album. Above: Julia Germaine (right) and friends, a fantastic collection of treasures, and a gal with the world in her hands.

As for memorable moments, we celebrated Victoria Hruska's birthday last week. Accompanied by violinist Kim Faught, vendors and visitors sang her happy birthday, delivered a signed birthday card, and ate delicious cupcakes. Victoria, we love you!

Flea Peeps and Dog

It's been well documented that Little Flea loves dogs. We're glad the sentiment is mutual!
