is the loneliest number,
so they say.

They must not have come to flea.o.logy.

Had they done that, they definitely wouldn't have been lonely.
Not by a long shot.

In fact, be prepared to rub shoulders with a 
few scores of your fellow flea-market-loving 
  "new friends" when you come on Saturday. . .

Hmmm. . . just

more day.

Have you made your shopping list yet?

Or are you just going to see what 
strikes your fancy when you get here?

(That's what I do.
I spend more money that way,
b u t    t h a t ' s   o k a y .
I come home with 
m o r e   t r e a s u r e s 
that way.
And more   
  h a p p i n e s s ! )

Woo hoo!

Just one day.

24 hours.

1440 minutes.

1 school day.

3 meals.

17 times letting the dogs out and back in.

1 sleep.

1 drive to Payson.

Oodles of excitement.

See you there!

A few of my favorite things. . .

With just two days left until the big flea. . . 
I'm simply going to show you 
two of my favorite things 
I'm bringing on Saturday.

(Shhh. . . don't tell, 
but I'm so busy 
getting everything 
ready that I 
don't have time
to do anything

Item #1

My new nail bin. . . recently picked up in Idaho.  
It's a display piece, but what's exciting is what's in it. . . 
loads of interesting "littles" for crafty people
 to use in their own creations.

Have fun exploring in it!

Item #2

Ha ha. . . just kidding!  
These are two of my favorite things, 
and I am bringing my daughter, 
but we're leaving QT home. 
 So sad, she is pretty friendly. 

Real Item #2

Old-fashioned, steampunk-style lightbulbs.
Make a statement when you decorate with these babies.
Get'em early, I've only got a few. . .

Six degrees of flea.o.logy!

In honor of just 

days left before flea.o.logy

it seems painfully obvious

that we should 

celebrate with

"The Six Degrees of flea.o.logy"

This is, of course, loosely based on the Six Degrees of Separation, which claims that every actor or actress is related to actor Kevin Bacon in six steps or less.  Below is an example of the game, as seen in a commercial for the Visa check card that parodied the game:

In the commercial, Bacon wants to write a check to buy a book, but the clerk asks for his ID, which he doesn't have.  He leaves and returns with a group of people, then says to the clerk, "Okay, I was in a movie with an extra, Eunice, whose hairdresser, Wayne, attended Sunday school with Father O'Neill, who plays racquetball with Dr. Sanjay, who recently removed  the appendix of Kim, who dumped you sophomore year.  So you see, we're practically brothers."   (Courtesy:

Now, let's see what we can do with our version. . .

You opened this blog post

which was posted by me, Cathie,

who likes to buy flea.o.logy goodies from Vickie,

who lives in Davis County, just like Noel,

who sells beautiful jewelry, just like Shireen
who makes her own beautiful creations,

which is something she has in common with Paula
who also makes beautiful recreated creations,

who is the one who began flea.o.logy all those years ago!

Can you come up with your own "Six degrees of flea.o.logy?"

(and. . . just six more blog followers to go before someone
wins the new Flea Market Style magazine!)
