it’s something mrs. jones has been hoping for a long time, and it’s really finally happening…miss mustard seed, marian parsons herself, is coming to visit us in memphis this january! so, what do you do when one of your all time faves/idols/inspirations says ‘yes’? make some plans, and invite everyone you know (that’s where you come in!)
so here’s the blueprint: on friday 1/27, marian will set up at our midtown studio to teach two milk paint workshops. in the morning, a get-started, cover-all-the-basics course called step up to milk paint. in the afternoon, she’ll add more layers and techniques to the mix in i heart milk paint. each workshop can stand on its own as a self-contained class, or join us for both and go home with all the tricks up your sleeve and a bag of goodies. each workshop will be limited to 12 students. (register by clicking on the course title, or call us at the shop or studio.)
saturday 1/28, we are hosting a fancy little flea market in the hay barn & stables at the germantown farm park. miss mustard seed will be on stage several times during the day, doing painting demonstrations, chatting about running a creative business/blogging/styling & photography, and signing books. bonus: our amazing friend shaunna west of perfectly imperfect will be here, too, joining marian for some of the demos and chats…so you’re in for an extra treat.
the fancy little flea will also feature top vintage and handmade vendors from around the region, yummies from say cheese, dr. beans, and 17berkshire, and demonstrations and hands-on mini-workshops taught by some of our favorite creative friends.
tickets to the event are $10, available in advance here or at the door. some workshops are still being finalized, but registrations are all detailed here as they are confirmed. follow @fancylittleflea on instagram to stay in the loop, use the fancy little flea event listing on facebook to invite friends, and get all the current scoop, vendors, and schedule at the fancy little flea market website.
