Fridays at the Flea

If you are looking for the April 25th Pink Saturday, please click HERE. Sorry for the confusion!

Hi! Welcome to A Classy Flea’s first “Fridays at the Flea”, inspired by our friend Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. We have so many wonderful pieces that come in each week it’s hard to choose what to feature. To help us narrow the choices, we have decided to do a “theme” each week. This week’s theme is Roses! We found roses on everything from hankie boxes to rocking chairs. Hope you enjoy browsing with us!

We are also taking this opportunity to launch our first Pink Saturday. We hope you enjoy all of the pink roses and other flowers we are sharing this week!

Let's start with a few decorative accessories:

We can always count on Laura to have roses in her space!
