Summer is officially here (yep, we're already on the downslide from the longest day of the year). Also, it's going to get to 100ยบ in Bend in just a few days. That's about as hot as we can stand it. The good news: it does cool down a bit at night, which means very pleasant outdoor dining (breakfast and dinner, in any case), and parties on the deck until... whenever. To help you along with that, we just got in some new bistro sets and a couple of large shipments of our fabulous solar Soji lanterns. There's a lot in stock right now, so swing by and take a look. Here's just a small sampling:

A jaunt into flea market heaven...

Our first Vintage Flea Market of the 2015 summer season (June 6) was a Blast – yes, with a capital B. I'm just now getting around to posting some pictures of it. We were completely sold out of spaces and had quite the crowd of attendees. I barely had time to snap some pix, then we were swamped inside the store, too. By the time I got back outside to take more pictures, some of my favorite things were sold (of course!). You can never hesitate to buy something you like at a flea market... because the person next to you will probably snap it up the minute you look away.

Don't miss the rest of our markets,  scheduled for July 11, August 1, August 22, and September 19, from 10-4. Wheeeee!

Here are some of the things I found at our June 6 market (likely all sold, but this will give you a little taste of the next market).
