moving on

Wow guys, the Brooklyn Flea Philly rocked yesterday!  The crowds, the music, the vintage goodness.  It was all amazing.  I love the market atmosphere.  I’m not going to lie, it is a ton of work to get out there and set up shop for one day.  In fact, it is a 12 hour day including set up and break down plus prep the day before.  But I love the scene and the energy that popup markets bring…not to mention the flexibility.

I love it so much so that we’re closing up the Brick & Mortar.

This was a tough decision considering how adorable the little shop is with all of its glorious hundred year old chicken coop character but it just makes sense at this point.  There’s just not enough time to utilize the building to its full potential.

When we opened up shop a year ago, the only other venue we sold at was the seasonal Clover Market which still remains a favorite.  (Last market of the season is this Sunday from 10-5)

Since then Circa Dee has taken up space at The West End Garage in Cape May, NJ – then doubled that space.

A couple of months ago we also added Serendipity Shops of Doylestown to the list where we stock Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint.  Yes, you can still buy the paint there and I will still schedule milk paint workshops offsite.

And now Brooklyn Flea Philly is going to be a regular weekly market at the Piazza where we’ll set up shop from time to time.

Thank you to everyone that has supported Circa Dee Brick & Mortar over the past year.  I’ve met so many new vintage lovers and have had the opportunity to really get to know you.  I hope to continue seeing you out at the popups and co-ops when Circa Dee is in your neighborhood.  We’ve got Philly, the Shore, Bucks County & the Mainline covered!

Can’t wait to see where the road ahead takes Circa Dee next!

P.S.  The display bed pictured above is for sale.  It is actually a fold up cot that stores very well and opens up to a full size.  Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll give you a great deal!

Hey guys!  Circa Dee Brick & Mortar is OPEN this weekend.

Saturday & Sunday 12-4 – 1814 Valley Forge Road, Worcester, PA

Circa Dee: Brick & Mortar - featuring occassional sales & events

We won’t be open at all in May so stop in now to see what’s new and say hi!  I’ll be posting preview pics on facebook later this week.  Help us make room for all of the treasures we plan to bring back from Brimfield next month.  (we’re still looking for more pointers if you’re a seasoned Brimfieldian)

We’re also expecting a big shipment of Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint just in time for the weekend.

Speaking of milk paint, I’ll be doing a demo on Sunday evening at Serendipity Shops of Doylestown – our other local retailer.  Perhaps you want to see the paint mixed in person…

counting down

Just over one week until Spring’s first Clover Market!  Will I see you there?

Clover Market

I’m narrowing down the inventory that will make it to the April popup next Sunday, April 14th.  Have you seen anything here lately that you’d like me to bring?

Oh I’ve got an awesome little vintage medical cabinet that will definitely be in the mix.  It is so fresh that I haven’t even posted a pic yet but it will make a fabulous bar for someone.  Or a nightstand.  Or both.  I’m not judging if you have a bar in your bedroom.  Stay tuned!

By the way you can get a sneak peak and first dibs at what we’re bringing to Clover by stopping by

Brick & Mortar next Saturday, April 13th from 12-4.

What are you treasure hunting for this season?
