Missing it already: last Vintage Flea Market of the season

We always have mixed feelings about our September flea market: last of the season, the work is done (on that project, anyway). But no more flea markets until next summer – wah! Of course, we'd love to throw one more this fall, but the weather is so unpredictable...

This market (9/19/15) might have been one of the best ever. Great vendors (pretty much sold out), and some wonderful finds. Some of it went very, very quickly – before I had a chance to snap a picture (as people were carrying things out to their cars). Purchases were piling up as people hunted and gathered like true shopping monkeys. One customer told me she had already spent $800, and the day had barely begun. Wheee! It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect: something like 75º and blue skies – the best days in Bend. {If I was visiting here, this would definitely be the month to come!}

Watch our email newsletters (you can sign up on our website at www.pomegranate-home.com) or announcements on Facebook for next year's flea market schedule. Meanwhile, here are a few pictures of some great scenes from our September 19 market.

Fall arrivals

Ahhh, we love this time of year. All the new fall colors coming in (even if it is still 90º this week), that change in season that is so imperceptible at first, then suddenly becomes real autumn. Apple cider and pumpkins... soon.

Meanwhile, we've been getting in so many new items from market (and vintage treats from our buying trips). Lots of trays and serving pieces, dinnerware, placemats, linen napkins and runners, candles... and so much more.

You just have to come and take it all in. There's more every day – somehow we find the space.
