We had so much fun....meeting new vendors, chatting & dinning out! We even had a fire alarm go off Friday night at 1AM ~ that wasn't fun, but added to the excitement of our trip.(We were told later, a few boys in a high school band were having fun).
Today I had the pleasure of watching Ava, she is a small little wonder! Just hearing her laugh, and watching her play, was my gift today. She made me feel whole and complete, she gave me a peace of mind today ~ so relaxing.

Celia and I Welcome you to 'The Mad Hatter Vintage Flea Market'
The Mad Hatter began as a vision from a story book, and memories from my daughters childhood, and lots of imagination. We then found this great little grange, and with help from family and friends that love us, we brought it to become concrete form. Piece by piece, until one day our vision became real.
We thank all the shoppers, visitors and vendors that are helping manifest our dream. The show was astounding and exhilarating. Celia and I are taking a little time to seize the moment. We want to savor it as long as we can. We hope all the vendors are taking a little time to enjoy their success, we couldn't do it with out you.
XO Glad & Celia

'The Bees Knees' Assistant Chef Shari, Chef Lynn, Tweedledum & Tweedledee Food of course, the age-old companion of making everything better, Our 'Bees Knees' Menu pleased everyone. The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts, all on a summer day! The Knave of Hearts, he sole those tarts and took them quite away!!
