French Flea Market
A couple of weeks ago I visited a few of my favorite shops in Noblesville. Shout out to Peggy at A Corner Cottage which is my absolute fav!
Anyway I noticed a flyer about a French Flea Market in Tipton Indiana. What? This was too exciting! I've been to the famous Paris flea markets and had a wonderfully overwhelming experience. So I couldn't wait to see what it would be like.
Friday my Hub and I took the hour trip to Tipton and had a really nice time. The French Flea Market was set up in the parking lot of Horton's Hardware but alot of planning and hard work went into this event. It was evident in the curb appeal, booth displays, french music playing, etc...There were about a dozen booths. I believe the participating vendors were by invitation only and they all had lovely and interesting things. (except one booth that was a direct sales product)
My information may be a little sketchy but I think the owners of Horton's Hardware started the French Flea Market last year. Apparently the wonderful lady has a booth at Logan Street Mall in Noblesville but keeps an ongoing and ever growing store within the hardware store and what I saw was gorgeous! Lots of coverless books, pendants, flowers, frames, the list goes on and on.
So if you are ever near Tipton Indiana I encourage you to stop by and see her incredible shop.
