Polka Dot Flea Postcards And Mascot

I am so excited to have the Polk Dot Flea postcards printed and in my hands!

This is the front

And the back.  

I am going to hand the postcards out EVERYWHERE and they will be given out by our sponsors Adjectives Market and Barr Display  

It took a lot of work with the graphic artist to get it Jussssst right!

I plan on always using the same logo with every flea but, changing the background to keep it fresh

Here's the Polka Dot Flea....Isn't he cute?
Do you see him in the top of the logo?  I wanted him to look friendly and not like a real (creepy) flea.  I plan on making a few of him to hang from the ceiling at the Polka Dot Flea along with.....what else.....Polka dots of course!

I am now hard at work getting posters designed and adding the fabulous vendors to the Polka Dot Flea website........I'm getting there...Oh goodness so much to do.....I kept thinking....Why doesn't someone start a Flea in Orlando....Ummmm, I think I know why lol!

Check out the Polka Dot Flea website HERE   
And follow 
the Polka Dot Flea on Facebook HERE

If you want to be a vendor...Don't dally, check out the vendor page HERE

Thank you so much for following this adventure with me
 I read a quote on Facebook today that said.....

"If your dreams don't scare you....You are not dreaming big enough"

Well folks......I'm dreaming BIG enough!

Happy Creating!

Yep~~~I agree the hanging fleas needs polka dots! Not putting any extras off on you but, wouldn't a big ol flea at each booth with there number on it be fun and informative. The post cards handouts are fantastic. Rotating the color is genius. You're having just tooooo much fun~~~absolutely love it!!!

Linda said...

The cards look great, love the flea! Don't know if I'll make it on June 7th but I now live in Port Richey, Florida (from freezing, snowy, NH) so I will make it there at some point. Best of luck!!

It's so exciting to watch you make your DREAM come to fruition. I love your mascot...he is quite handsome. Wouldn't it be fun to have someone greet your customers in a human-size mascot suit!

Dapper Mr. Flea mascot. Love your postcards. Keep dreaming BIG and you will succeed my friend. I love your "spunk" and know you will have the very best Polka Dot Flea EVER!!!

Celestina Marie Design said...

Hi Carol, The postcards are fabulous and noticed Mr.Flea right off. Such a cute mascot!
I know you are busy and it is a lot of work, but if anyone can do it, it's you and it will be done fabulous. Remember to pace yourself.
Have fun!!

Jane said...

You are doing it right, girl!! Love the graphics on the card and the flea "mascot" is perfect!! The vendors and shoppers in Orlando are lucky to have you!

Kathy said...

Bravo to you, Carol! You are making a dream come true for yourself and others, too. You go girl!

marda said...

Your postcards are great. I can't imagine all the work this is taking. Good luck. Wish I was one of the lucky shoppers coming your way.

Nancy said...

Hoorah, Hoorah!! I Love them, how creative with your spiffy mascot! I am so happy to see things are well on their way Carol. I keep trying to get over here but I have been moving so slow and get frustrated. Don't work at record speed like before, and hate it! I am so happy you are doing the Flea Market, have you heard from Lori Powell at all about this?

Huggs, Nancy

Debbie said...

Love that facebook quote. I need to print it and put it where I CAN NOT avert my eyes from it.

I also love the logo and the mascot. So cute, Carol.

When I say that I want to come to this, I'm dead serious. I don't know if I can swing a Florida trip in June (It's our 30th anniversary at the end of the month, and if I have two pennies left after house repairs, I want to do something then...) I really hope plans for doing two a year are still in the works because I would love a roadtrip with my mother and sister to the Flea. It would be such an adventure!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Carol, Love the cards and the flea logo is adorable. I have been buying lots of cool stuff for the show and painting and creating! I am putting your logo on my sidebar.

Connie said...

Hi Carol, these postcards are wonderful. When you get a ball rolling, there's no stopping you. I'm so proud of all your hard work and this new venue that you are opening to all the creative people in your area. You, dear friend are someone very special.
God bless you,
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

It's so great that you are making your dream a reality! I can't wait to see the pictures of all the booths set up and the ton of people that are going to attend your event! I do have a question about a post you posted awhile back. I wanted to transfer a graphic from my computer, but I don't remember how and was wondering which post that is. i want to transfer it onto a ASCP wood tray. I do love your blog and love that you share your creativity..


Cynthia said...

Carol, great cards and mascot you have chosen. I know this will be a huge success.


aimee said...

Carol, thank you for getting back to me soooo soon! Can't wait to create ;)
