2015 Polka Dot Flea Poster

I am so excited to unveil the poster for the 2015 


I love it!  Do you recognize the Vintage Bike?  It is the one I painted last year for the Polka Dot Flea.


My vision is to pile the bike up with vintage finds like on the poster, so when you walk into the Polka Dot Flea it will be the first thing you see......Ah..Lets see if I can do it, I will keep you posted.

For new blog readers you can read the complete story of how and why I started the Polka Dot Flea HERE.   

The cliff notes are; That after being rained out as a vendor I decided I wanted to be a vendor at an indoor/air conditioned show right in the heart of Orlando.  Since there was no such thing...I started The Polka Dot Flea last year in Orlando and it was a huge success.  

Last year I dipped my toes in with 40 vendors at a one day show.  

This year there will be 100+ vendors.....
..... In triple the space (21,000 sq ft) 


And the show will be 2 days...Yikkes, I am already working on it full time. 



It will once again feature the "Best of the Best" in friendly juried vendors with attractive, well thought out booths.  Since vendors are the heart of the show they are pampered, supported, and know they are appreciated.  It is a well organized event with plenty of Polka Dot Flea support staff.





You can see more pictures of last years event HERE.  

Interested in being a vendor at this years show?  


Thank you for all of your helpful input on my last post where I asked you "if I should sell fresh flowers at the Polka Dot Flea this year".  


Let me save that for the next post.

Happy Creating

Carol

As you know Carol I'm an Oh and a Ah girl with you ! Unfortunately, I don't have time to leave comments like I would like to in others blogs, but with you it's quite different, because, I'm amazed with your energy ! I'm a contemplative girl in my studio with my drawings and paintings, and it would be impossible to me to be like you ! We always have projections and surely you are me in active girl !!! xoxo from Paris - nice weather and always a different atmosphere after the awful events.

Carol, your poster is so charming. It will bring the ladies in by the truck load. I get so excited watching you plan for this event. I wish there were a way that I could attend . . . who knows maybe someday :)
I want to do that with a bike. I just haven't figured out exactly where I want to put it and what color to paint it :)
I simple adore your blog :)

Outdoor events are always tricky! That's when it rains, snows, blows a hurricane or fire into town! Ugh! A/C sounds like a dream way to shop! And sell! Have great successes, and I wish I could be there. You are such a darling. I remember when I first met you here in blog world and you sent me the cutest paper dolls. I have never forgotten that. You are a kind and generous lady. Thanks for your nice friendship here. Enjoy the weekend. Happy Valentine's Day!
