le petite flea launches.


well, since i’m moving, and kind of going for a whole new look, it’s come time to pass along some of my vintage treasures. you must understand, it is not easy for me to part with some of these belongings. many have fond memories behind them, but i feel good about passing them along to good homes, like yours. so without further ado, i bring you sfgirlbybay’s new vintage etsy shop, le petite flea.


i’ll be adding more of my vintage finds to le petite flea, from trips to london and italy, and just across the bridge at the alameda flea market, as i go through my stash of collectibles and loosen my grip on the past. time to move on. time to purge and find new, old stuff! but you know what they say, one gal’s trash is another’s treasure. i hope you find something you like at le petite flea.

    Don’t you want a girl flea? La petite puce (or flea), not ‘le’ .
    Ok, I’m just a cranky old grammarian and you’ll never speak to me…

  8. victoria says:

    very funny about the name mishap. Question, the pic above the tea cup, is that a ring/jewelery holder?

  14. Fabulous idea- hope it goes off with a bang!

  15. victoria says:

    Lovely shop! I have that exact same Brownie Holiday that I luckily found at the Salvation Army. So far it’s sitting on the shelf without film. How are the pictures?

  31. Sylvie says:

    Hey, I recognize that mid century candle holder!

  32. Alisa says:

    I thought the rule on Etsy was everything must be hand made? Have they changed that rule?

  33. Alisa says:

    Oh silly me. You can sell vintage too. I didn’t know. Now I do!
